Meet the Author

Joel B. Green is Professor of New Testament Interpretation at Fuller Theological Seminary. Author of many books, he is alsoa General Editor of the Wesley Study Bible and the Common English Bible.

The Common English Bible is not simply a revision or update of an existing translation. It is a bold new translation designed to meet the needs of Christians as they work to build a strong and meaningful relationship with God through Jesus Christ. The Common English Bible is committed to the whole church of Jesus Christ. To achieve this, the CEB represents the work of a diverse team with broad scholarship, including the work of over 115 scholars - men and women from 22 faith traditions in American, African, Asian, European, and Latino communities. As a result, the English translation of ancient words has an uncommon relevance for a broad audience of Bible readers - from children to scholars.

    Excellent commentary

    The respected authors present complete commentary with new information concerning the subject passages. I don't always approve the common language chosen for the translations, but I use the CEB often as I prepare for my Bible presentations. On that basis I recommend the purchase of this new CEB Study Bible.

    It is difficult to write this review in that I am such a believer in the King James version of the Bible for reading and as a main study source. That being said let me also state I have a wide variety of cross referencing bibles. At this point let me tel you this is one of the very best Bible translation I have found with the more modern language. I have read many that made me cringe and when I began to read The CEB Study Bible it was with a jaundiced eye. Then I was both pleased and surprised to find there was a truer translation from the old English to modern English than I have yet to see before.


    There are many additions to CEB Bible to help both the practiced scholar and to the new christian wanting to learn more of God's message to those new to the faith. At the beginning of the chapter there is a brief synopsis giving its highlights and some insights to its author. There is also an outline of the book to show what you can expect to find as you read the book. There are some beautiful Illustrations to show the area where different events took place or to better illustrate a descriptive verse. Joel Green provides cross references so that you will be able to know where to go to find other scriptures to define the read passage or just to read a different wording of the same verse.


    The layout is such that you read the verse, are able to see the reference verses and read the study notes for that section at the same time. This makes it especially easy to use the CEB Bible as a study tool. I was only provided the Book of Mark for this review, but if the other books are as well done as Mark, The CEB Study Bible will be an asset to any who wish to gain a greater understanding of The Word, God's Covenant with His people, their wanderings from and reaffirmation with God,the building and fall of nation of Jewish nation, the birth, life and times of God's Son and our Savior, Jesus Christ, and the building of the church by the disciples. I look forward to obtaining a copy of my own to see all of the CEB Study Bible. Be sure to check it out for yourself. I am sure you will find it as much a blessing as I did.
