comment Non-Christian/secular translation of the Bible?
Not to respond to the obvious with the obvious, but a translation by Jewish scholars wouldn't meet the "secular" qualification of my question.

@DJClayworth, true. Hence why I said that in my question. I'm just looking to study by juxtaposition.

comment Reason for loving/worshiping Jesus
@El'endiaStarman, you removed SteelyDan's comment that Church of Christ, Scientist is an example. Is that not true? I believe his comment was: "'Significant' doesn't matter. I believe this as does Church of Christ, Scientist"

@DanAndrews, an etymological hurdle for both secular and Christian scholars.

comment Does being a Christian mean being a Bible literalist?
@RiverC, which saint? I believe it. Good pub story to have. Maybe I could turn it into a pickup line. :)

comment Non-Christian/secular translation of the Bible?
@PeterTurner, true that. "Hebrew sourced" w/o religious backing would be just great. Philologists and historians welcome.

Ron Maimon and @nickecarlo provided some insight on the Wikisource Translation. That translation seems incomplete and not at all thorough. +1 for a correct answer to my question, though I've edited the question now to specify that I'm looking for a rigorous translation.

comment Which denominations use the King James Version?
+1, I'd add to White's list that it's a more poetic read. Although according to David Daniell's "The Bible in English," the KJV scholars had to follow King James I instructions for conformance with the Church of England's ecclesiastic and episcopal agenda. <-- not a major upset for me.
