This Bible is written in plain english, which makes it much easier for those studying the Bible in any way can read in their language what is said in the Bible.

Format: Paperback
I was given this Bible as a Christmas gift, and my initial reaction to a Bible written in contemporary English was one of skepticism. I thought that this would surely be a watered-down version of Sacred Scriptures that compromises the true meaning of God's Word for the sake of making it easy to read. After spending some time with this Bible, I am pleased to say that I was wrong. It is written in easy to read contemporary English, but still manages to convey the truth of God's Word in a way that is consistent with Catholic faith and morals. One thing I didn't like is that the deuterocanonical books were placed in a separate section at the end rather than in their traditional order among the other books. Still, I think this Bible is worth buying for anyone who wants a very readable version of Sacred Scripture that is faithful to the Catholic Church.

This bible has a great layout. Each book is preceeded by an application to real life which helps the reader understand the book he/she is about to read. At the front of the Bible there are questions that people frequently ask and Scripture sites that contain the answers to those questions. It's just great!

Format: Paperback
A hip packaging of the "Living Bible," a paraphrase of the good old KJV. As such, it not only shares the KJV's textual shortcomings, but exchanged the ambiguity for readability. Not a good study Bible, but one I managed to cruise through, cover to cover, begats & all, when I was 15. It's a trip everybody in Western culture should take at least once. This version makes it far less daunting than it used to be.
5 stars for readability. 2 stars for the quality of the text. Several more modern translations, such as the NIV, make much better compromises....

Back when I was junior in High School at a Jesuit School, this was given to us as our Bible. Being young at the time, I just set it aside. I recently found it on my bookshelf and I do have to say its a great edition for the youth.

I like the reading plan and the commentaries as part of the forward as well as each book.

And, there are some funny paraphrases, like: "John's disciples and the Jewish leaders sometimes fasted, that is, went without food as part of their religion."

This Bible is truly great to just sit down and read. It is set in east to read language and the verses are clear and easy to understand, i really like the book headers. And i would Highly recomend this for youth, who want to grow with God. I wish i would see more of my friends bring these to Bible Study.

Format: Paperback
This is a paraphrase translation in very modern American English. Some of the dialogue is laughable and some of the paraphrases sound pretty fishy when compared with more literal translations. But as long as this isn't the only Bible you read, I can give it a mild recommendation.

This Bible is written in plain english, which makes it much easier for those studying the Bible in any way can read in their language what is said in the Bible. I bought this for my grandson (age 15) when he told me that the Bible speaks like "Yoda". This made it much easier for him to understand what the Biblical language said to him, but in a format he understands.

Format: Paperback
The Bible, filled with thou's, verily's, and all the language of old is sometimes a bit challenging to follow, if not read. With The Way, the writing is contemporary and thus easier to comprehend. I had a difficult time finding the book anywhere else but here. Thanks for a smooth sale.
