The study bible whilst not perfect (no translation is) is a very credible attempt at a secular translation and has some extremely valuable viewpoints to it. The study notes are written not based on traditional assumptions but on the latest secular knowledge. As our available texts have grown from new testament times, so have our understanding of expressions etc. (For example the laws pertaining to divorce can be understood in a better context now).Unfortunately some will focus on homosexuality but if they choose to focus on minor themes that are barely mentioned thats their choice. However, Jesus gives us many commands including love your neighbour, turn the other cheek, look after the poor and the sick, do not lie and of course do not judge and these can be studied across this and other translations because, as they are repeated time and time again...these ARE the important themes in gods word to us. This is worth using to study those major commands that Jesus gave us. (for those that want to worry about homosexuality, then skip those few verses. Jesus doesnt mention it anyway so this is a very useful study tool. Jesus does say of course whatever you do to the sick, the poor etc, you do to him... and this is a great tool for understanding the cultural co text of what he said). highly recommended and remember..anything you dont like, you can check for yourself (the mark of a good study guide rather than dogma)

The good news is that this book gives us insight into how we have been socialized to embrace biblical translations which have fallen out of lockstep with contemporary sensibilities. Many of the claims which Christians make against certain groups have no biblical basis.

I shouldn't have been surprised, but it was eye opening to learn about how certain groups influence biblical content. They shape the Bible that we see, and, by extension, the messages that we get from it. That is why gay people have so much trouble in church. That would have been good as a separate book.

The Kindle Edition has no links in its Table of Contents, and no index. It makes navigating difficult. The books of the New Testament are cluttered together, and lack introdutions. Some passages are so heavily laden with contemporary text that they are hard to recognize.

This book could have stopped at chapter two.

Contains a lot of helpful information on word meanings especially the LGBT "clobber" passages however the layout and general presentation leaves a lot to be desired.

A wonder piece of reconciliation literature, it is both scholarly and compassionate. Wonderful news for everyone, especially those from a faith background.

Format: Paperback
This trash book is nothing more than sophistry and literary obfuscation. This is NOT a "Christian" bible, nor is it even a Christian "companion" to anything "Christianity." This book twists the canonical scriptures of the true Christian bible.

LGBT are pushing for a radical redefinition of marriage and gender. The church is becoming "remade" in the image of the current culture, while radicals and a greatly expanded government is filling in the void for a once vibrant church. This book is only an accelerant on the flames of forced societal acceptance of a sinful and biblically detestable "bad habit."

According to those LGBT folks that claim to be fighting for “tolerance,” they demand that everyone else's real rights must give way to those who demand that you affirm their lifestyle. That isn’t tolerance. That’s totalitarianism. Conform or else!

Jesus loved sinners, which is why He wouldn’t affirm their sin. Neither can Christians. If we celebrate harmful behavior, despite any good intentions, we are actually being unloving. Love requires we tell people the truth, even if they don’t like it. This book does not tell the truth, but only lies and assures a destructive eternalizim in the afterlife.

Furthermore, we Christians are indeed called to judge and Jesus makes that abundantly clear. So if we don't judge we are deficient. What Jesus makes plane is that we should NEVER judge self righteously or hypocritically. There is a distinction here folks.

And finally, this book is decisive. When everything is tolerated, nothing is limited. Tolerance when it comes to personal relationships is a virtue. However tolerance when it comes to truth is a sin.

This book seeks to justify homosexuality leading homosexuals to erroneously conclude they can continue sinning and still go to

This is by far the biggest perversion to the word of God I have ever seen. I am also a student of the Greek language and guarentee that Dr. Nyland's claims concerning the incorrect translations concerning homosexuality are completely FALSE! I have studied over passages such as these and found that the NASB and the ESV both have the most accurate translation of the original text. The sad thing is that because the author has a Doctorate, people assume the translation must be correct. It is only false hope for those that lead a homosexual lifestyle and refuse to change. The appearance of knowledge in this work is in fact only an illusion and is certainly the devil's work. You can live your life how you wish, but God's word cannot be changed by Dr. Nyland or anyone else.
