Meet the Author

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.

    I Also Recommend:

    Not recommended ... too loose with the translation.

    This "translation" gets a single star based on just the first verse because I can't give it a negative rating. I understand the concept of using modern terms so that the increasingly larger portion of society who is not familiar with Christianity can easier understand what is being said. However, it is my firm belief the everybody who can read understands what "In the beginning God created" means. Yet this "translation" changes that to "When God began to create" which at least to me is a clear accommodation to the current scientific theories of the age of the earth (4.5 billion years old). While many have interpreted "In the beginning God created" to accommodate billions of years it also leaves open the possibility of a young earth. In my opinion translating the text "When God began to create" seems to be intended to lead the reader to the old earth interpretation. At least they give the alternate translation in the notes. This "translation" may be marginally okay for those with no Christian background but I would hope that they would quickly more to a more literal translation like the English Standard Version which is also typically offered for free in the NOOK version several time each year.

    I understand this is a wonderful version of the Bible - I have it on my Nook and will use it for reference.

    It will be good and helpful to have a Bible on my Nook.

    Not bad for a "Critical" Bible. But not Good!

    Forget Bible "criticism"! -- Allow the Bible and the Holy Spirit to "criticize" you, to make you a saved, and holy person!
