I'm giving this Bible 4 stars, because I don't have it YET (I'M HOPING IT WILL TURN INTO 5 STARS, I'LL UPDATE REVIEW AFTER I RECEIVE AND REVIEW THE BOOK). I'm ordering it today--but as a few people have also inquired, I TOO wanted to KNOW what the 26 different translations were before I purchased this bible.

I've done the research for YOU and me and found which 26 versions this book uses (Hooray)! I wanted to list it here to help you use this review for future reference to discover EXACTLY what are the 26 translations found in this Bible and decide if this is what you're looking for or not. I'm looking forward to hiding God's Word in my heart with the help of this book.

Contains The King James Version in its entirety, plus the most significant insights from:

1.) The Bible: An American Translation (J. M. Powis Smith and Edgar J. Goodspeed)

University of Chicago Press

2.) The Holy Bible Containing the Old and New Testaments: An Improved Edition

American Baptist Publication Society

3.) The Amplified Bible

Zondervan Publishing House

4.) The American Standard Version

6.) The Modern Language Bible: The New Berkeley Version in Modern English

7.) Praise-Songs of Israel: A Rendering of the Book of Psalms (John DeWitt)

I use this for at home bible reading and study. This is a great work! Quite amazing actually. The KJV text is in bold black type and numerous translations are in standard type positioned immediately beneath the corresponding line, phrase or KJV verse. The format is superb and fast reading. I looked at many, many other parallel and interlinear bibles before this one. This is the best of all. I STRONGLY recommend The Word.

"The Word" is the most helpfull Bible I have ever used in my 25 years of study. Let's face it, unless you are a Greek or Hebrew scholar, you may be missing out on the sense of a verse. You may wonder "Just what is God trying to say here?" This book offers up the best of all the translations together in a neat bouquet. Among them a sturdy sense of the meaning is gained with out a great deal of effort. Not only is fuller sense of each verse gained, but reading the verse over and over again in 4 or 5 translations plants the meaning deep in your heart and ministers to us in a way that a quick reading of one translation can not do.
Most of us routinely refer to only one or two translations a week in our personal devotions. We are missing out! This book is a great opportunity to deepen your understanding of God and his Word. The Bible, although dismissed by some as myth, is just as immediate and relevant to our life today as tomorrow's newspaper. Human nature has not changed and the gripping stories of disasters, dangers, battles, triumphs, passions, pride, true loves, sorrows, and salvation of people are still facinating. They warn us, teach us, inspire us and strengthen us. For we learn to awe an unfathomably great God, not a distance absentee landlord, but an infintely personal and loving God who sacrificed the best He had, His uniquely born son Jesus Christ, as a final answer to the world's one and only problem: sin.
"The Word", in it's rainbow of translations, brings a new vibrance to the Bible.

26 of 27 people found the following review helpful By A Customer on March 24, 1999
Format: Hardcover
The layout, format and presentation of the 26 translations is very ingenious. The different translations are presented without duplicate translations cluttering the page. However, I still need a reference Bible, concordance and index to get me back to familiar Scriptures that I can't remember where they are at the moment. But for verse by verse commentary (the Bible explaining itself), this Book is Divinely Inspired! It takes a while to remember which abbreviation (ASV, Knox, NAB, Sept, YLT, ABPS, etc.) is what translation. That keeps you turning back to the front for a while. But you will always have the King James Version as the standard Scripture of this Bible. The other 25 translations are presented under the King James Version in a verse by verse, sentence by sentence, thought by thought format to give you a breadth of the different colors and meanings of the various Hebrew and Greek words as translated by the different versions of the Bible.

I have been using this Bible for many years now. Found it extremely useful in my devotions & Bible study especially getting new insights on each particular passage under study. This Bible provides in one volume all the various insights needed for Bible Study; easily arranged in a very user-friendly format - verse-by-verse and phrase-by-phrase.
No need to buy many translations of the Bible for serious Bible study. All I need is just this one Bible for all my Bible study. Also, its easy to carry around in one volume during my overseas trips.
Truly, one of my best investment in studying the Bible. Highly recommended for both new & seasoned students of the Bible.
