I had this book long ago in catholic grade school. It's very easy to read and study. They took away a lot of the old english words and phrases and translated to be more understandable, in modern language. The meaning is still there. It still follows the same chapter and verse,in the bible. Just much easier and faster to read, and comprehend. I bought it again, as an adult, so I could study the new testament again.

I love this book; no more thou / thine / willeth / blah blah blah. I can absorb the words of the Bible without having to wonder about syntactical puzzlement. This is written in plain ole' average Joseph language that you might hear in a coffee shop around the corner. Great for kids and students because it adds an element of relatability and modernity to a very important, very old story. ;D

There was something about the natural English and line drawings that drew me to be captivated by this version of the New Testament as a young boy. I would read it during school during other classes. :) Got a new copy to have for myself and purchased a used copy to give to my soon to be 9 year old son in hopes it may captivate him. Amazed that new editions are not being printed of this great book.

I first saw this in the late 60's when my mother got a copy. She loved it. When I looked at hers, it opened up reading the Bible for me since it was an easy to read version. I got this copy recently, and it was like seeing an old frined again.

I love this translation. It's like reading a novel, in that it's all in modern English. Also, it's much better than a paraphrase , as it's closer to the original Greek text of the New Testament. I read this over and over in the 1960's. I recommend it to everyone!!!

This is the same version Bible I read 30 years ago and became a Christian after reading it. It is easy to understand and flows easily while reading it. Would recommend this Bible especially for children or teens or for someone new to the Word.

We have given out many of these to incarcerated young people in the past and they have been the first Bible some of them have ever been exposed to. Easy to read and the art work is memorable!
