    The Good News Bible

    If you do not read the Bible because you don't understand it, this is the book you should purchase. This book is translated in comtemporary English which makes it very easy to understand. This is the large print version for seniors such as myself. Our congregation is purchasing this book because Dr. James E. Delaney will begin reading his text from the verses of The Good News Bible beginning this summer. Also, our Bible Study Classes and Teachers' Meetings will use this book. Of course, the King James Version will always be our reference book.

    Understanding God's Word

    I came across this book in corrections. I turned a few pages in my spare time, and the rest is history. It is a must for anyone who wants to understand God's word. I read it everyday, and tell all my friends about it.

    Still Easiest to Understand

    The Good News Translation remains the easiest version of the Bible to understand, despite numerous efforts by other translations in the last twenty years to match its accomplishments. While not perfect, its balance of accuracy and clarity remain unmatched. The GNT is a 'common language' translation. This does not mean that its language is limited in vocabulary or reduced to a child's level of understanding. It simply means that it employs the language that both janitors and professors use most of the time in their everyday speech. This approach brings out the meaning of the text and explains cultural and linguistic aspects that were meaningful to the original recipients of the Bible, but which are perhaps no longer clear to us today. Yes, such an approach has its limitations, and you are sure to find some places where you wish the translators had done something differently. However, if you were to examine the best literal, word-for-word translation available today, the English Standard Version, you would quickly discover that it too suffers from limitations inherent in its translation approach, as well as finding just as many instances where the translators might have done a better job. At any rate, the best thing to do is to simply try the Good News Translation. Use it alongside your current translation for a few weeks, then see what you think. I think you will be most pleased.

    paper is too thin

    I bought this Bible because of the large print, which is truly a comfortable size and font style... BUT the paper is so thin that the print on the opposite side of the page shows thru, which puts a strain on my eyesight. The Bible version itself is wonderful! Easy to understand, beautifully written.
