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.

    Can't change font size

    My review is somewhat one dimensional. I bought a Nook because if I use the biggest font, I don't need glasses. I miss reading without glasses. (Well, I used to miss it. Now I have a Nook.)

    The font on this Bible won't change size. The guy at B&N who helped me out on this said this is the only e book he has ever seen downloaded from B&N that does this. Some of the freebies from Google won't change size either.

    Anyway - I went to best sellers and searched up an NIV Bible that changes font and is easier to navigate anyway. Cost more - but small font does me no good.

    Truly Refreshing

    A lot of people like the wordy KJV, but I personally enjoy this new translation because it hands the New Testament Bible to the world in the language it uses today. You can read the wordy Bibles and not absorb anything, unless you studied Shakespeare. This will definitely give you a deeper comprehension of God's Word.

    Natural English

    The CEB is presented, not as an accurate translation, based on the most ancient texts, though the translators were careful on these points, but with an aesthetic appeal in the logo. The water motif there references creation, Great Flood, Red Sea, much biblical poetry, and, most important, Jesus who is called the "water of life." Thankfully, the translation is gender neutral, supporting the central theme of the Bible that redemption is intended for all, male and female. The paragraphing gives helpful reading guidance, like the paragraph involving Ephesians 5:15-21, rather than linking 21 with 22-24. Footnotes are spare. Quotations from the O. T. (or the Bible writer's version) are in italics, a choice which works visually. This is one of the few printings of the Bible in single-column, a form more familiar and much easier to comprehend. This practice will be even more important when the CEB Hebrew Scriptures are released, because of the writers' extensive use of poetry.
