The biblical books were written to Jews, for Jews, and about Jews, yet most Bible translations do not maintain a connection to the Jewish essence of the Bible. The TLV speaks with a decidedly Jewish voice to recover the authentic context of the Bible and the Christian faith, retaining the Jewish order of the Old Testament books, the Jewish name of the Messiah, reverence for the four-letter unspoken name of God, and many Hebrew transliterated terms, such as shalom, shofar, and shabbat. The result is a translation that is accurate, readable, reverential, and true to the Hebrew roots of the Christian faith.
The TLV Personal Size Giant Print Reference Bible offers readers powerful features in a convenient size and readable 12.5-point type, including
- introductions to each book of the Bible and the major sections of Scripture
