COMMON ENGLISH BIBLE-NEW TESTAMENT
The Common English Bible. This bible is a fresh translation to touch the Heart and Mind. Take a fresh look at the Bible while you experience a new translation. The Common English Bible is relevant, readable and reliable. The result is a new version that the typical reader or worshipper is able to understand. This bible has 115 leading biblical scholars from 22 denominations; Field tested by 77 reading specialists in 13 denominations; 90-day reading plan; Color Maps by National Geographic.
I read the Common English Bible. I did not particularly like it as I guess I am just old-fashioned and like the King James Bible. But, as I look at it through other people’s eyes, it would be a good bible for people who don’t understand the King James or the New International Version bible. If a person is a new Christian, it would be very helpful for that person. But, for me, it just didn’t do anything for me. I’m sorry, I just didn’t like it.
