over all, it's a great book. very easy to read. I have over a half dozen bibles, each one is of a different format, and out of those 6 or so bibles, I find this bible to be one of the best out there. You can read this book with out having to grab a dictionary every five minutes. The book is written in very basic english, which makes it very easy to understand. Highly recommended. I love it A++

This is probably the first English Bible to employ dynamic equivalence principles in translation theory. This is an outstanding work from the American Bible Society which pioneered such an attempt into English. Key features include: -the use of illustrations which intend to highlight the Biblical text, -the inclusion of Bible aids to help the both new and experienced Bible students, -the rendering of traditional weights, measures and monetary values in modern forms, -the clarification of traditional theological concepts by explanations in the text, and -the incorporation of inclusive language to rectify an apparent defect in traditional English with regard to the use of the inclusive masculine pronoun. With these features it is highly recommended for youth, immigrants, and those alienated from traditional church culture. It is also applicable to those who are well-churched, and well-educated in so-called secular pursuits. Thanks to Barnes and Noble Booksellers for carrying this Bible, even if it is a special order.
