I really enjoy this translation of the Bible. This is the first translation I've found that breaks the translation down into standard English paragraphs that read the way a story is expected to read. Most translations create a new paragraph for every 'verse' of every chapter. This translation instead makes most 'verses' into separate sentences as part of larger paragraphs. Even though it may not be a 'perfect' translation (I doubt there is such a thing, which is why people go back and study the original in the original language), it really is VERY good. Further, it is truly readable and enjoyable. I highly recommend this book
