If you are a pastor looking for a commentary that wasn’t written in the 1940’s or the 1980’s, or someone looking for a version of the New Testament that is easy to understand, or someone who has decided to read the Bible but isn’t sure what version would be a good start, let me suggest The Simplified New Testament Study Bible by Glenn Rogers. While it is the same Bible your Parents or your Grandparents used to read, it is in a translation that is easy to understand in today’s language. Rogers adds study notes to help explain and give insight into what can often be confusing. I think you will find The Simplified New Testament Study Bible to be a great addition to your library, whether it is your latest Bible or the very first one you have ever owned.
The Simplified New Testament Study Bible makes a significant contribution to the growing catalog of Bible translations. Using the process of dynamic equivalence, this extraordinary work by Dr. Glenn Rogers provides the contemporary reader with a translation of the New Testament that is effortless to read and easy to understand. To aid students, there is a brief introduction to each of the books, in which the traditional views of authorship, date, and audience are accepted. Dr. Rogers avoids technical issues and, instead, focuses on understanding and communicating the meaning of the text. In his explanatory notes, wide-ranging historical references offer succinct explanations of the original meaning of passages, as intended for the original readers. With The Simplified New Testament Study Bible, Professor Rogers has abundantly succeeded in his goal of providing a version that is respectful of the original Greek language and accurate in its translation into current American English. The statement that is printed on the cover of The Simplified New Testament Study Bible is exceedingly accurate; it IS a version of the New Testament that is “An Easy-to-Understand Contemporary Translation with Explanatory Notes.” This most recent English translation of the New Testament honors the Father, glorifies the Son and reveres the Word of God. It merits wide acceptance, and I recommend it enthusiastically to everyone who desires to understand the New Testament more fully. Dr. Charles Brazell, Ph.D.
