Cotton Patch, 1969

Clarence Jordan, in his "Cotton Patch" versions of the New Testament, was attempting to convey the heart of the Gospels and not necessarily the exact words. He transfers the Story of the Good Samaritan to Georgia and to a modern motorized highway. An effective portrayal, but completely untrue to the original Greek words.
