Taking up the work started in earnest by literary figure William Barnes, the great proponent of Anglo-Saxon English, and hearkening unto the nostalgic longings of so many great English writers— Tolkien, Gerard Manly Hopkins and Seanus Heaney— for a fore-1066 English, this version of the four gospels set over from the Authorized King James Bible is written in what is known today as Anglish— a type of English that uses more fully words of Anglo-saxon and Germanic roots, and resurrects old, forgotten words of Anglo-Saxon to replace words of Latin and Greek outspring. This lessens the coldness, and detached intellectualness, and sheer foreignness of English in its Latin and Greek words, and makes our tongue more homely and welcoming, more English-sounding, more true to the core of English and to its forebearer, Anglo-Saxon— that wonderful Germanic tongue so seldom studied, so too often ignored, and so too little known.
