About the Author
The CONTEMPORARY ENGLISH VERSION was published by the American Bible Society in response to an urgent need for a translation that would reach those many millions who are not reading the Bible. The goal was a Bible that is a serious translation-not a paraphrase-that combines historical and scholarly accuracy with contemporary language that everyone can understand. The result is a Bible that resonates with all people, wherever they may be in their spiritual journey. At last, a Bible that is easy to read, yet allows for a deeper connection to the very God who created us. Never before has there been a Bible that speaks so clearly to the heart and the mind of every reader.

This is the best study Bible to get if you are looking to read and understand more about the word of God. Its the easiest Bible to understand because it is broken down to the way most people speak now a days. Each chapter has the information separated into different paragraphs with a title, so you will know what the paragraph is about. You are not just reading trough chapters not knowing when one particular problem started or finished. For example: genesis chapter 1 is about how god created the earth. You will see DAY ONE everything done on that day then the next paragraph DAY TWO and so on. I recommend this book to everyone. I have learned so much more with this study Bible then with regular Bibles, I am able to remember mostly everything I read, its amazing. JUST GET AND YOU WILL SEE!!!!!!
