This is perhaps the most accurate and precise translation I have ever read. It reminds me quite a bit of the OLD American Standard Version (1901), but without the archaic language. The translators have followed the Hebrew and Greek very closely, and because of this many things are brought into the light that other translations - especially the dynamic equivalence versions - have missed.
Also, I am not a member of the Local Church movement, but I do appreciate the writings of Watchman Nee. I haven't read enough of Witness Lee's writings to form an opinion as of yet. The Recovery Version Bible that I have does not contain Mr. Lee's study notes. All this said, I am still very impressed with the precision and accuracy of this translation. It is truly outstanding. My only wish is that the publishers would offer it in a premium leather, such as calfskin or cowhide, rather than just bonded.
I ordered it from a little Christian bookstore in Seattle called Joy Unlimited. I always use this version as a reference when I open up my other Bibles, KJV to the NIV versions. It's great for studying and it gives you such a rich and deeper understanding of God's word. It's ties together the meaning of what the relationship is between God and his creation. It does not discriminate. Each time I studied, I just felt that I had learned so much, and it actually encouraged me to study longer and more often and enjoy it! You will not be disappointed! Amazon has the book at a great price. Again, another bargain. A little story...I fell asleep after studying, and woke up to discover I had spilled tea on it, from the last part of 1 Chronicles through 3/4 of Psalms! Talking about upset,I was so upset I took napkins and put them between each wet page, because the paper is very thin in this Bible. Looks like I am going to have to order another one although the one I rescued from tea is fine !!!! I am telling you, YOU WILL BE HAPPY YOU PURCHASED THIS VERSION! This is one Bible that you and your family will enjoy reading and pass down to future generations. Also check out their other publications through Living Stream Ministries, they too are excellent. God Bless You All and Happy Reading!!
Let's first go back to the history a little bit. In the year 1385 when John Wycliffe translated the Bible into English from the Latin Vulgate, he suffered intense persecution. He was expelled from his teaching position at Oxford, and 44 years after he died, the Pope ordered his bones exhumed and burned. Intense persecution stamped out his followers and teachings. One of the reasons that all those happened is because of his translation. His translation later became the base for the future King James Version.
God's Words bring light, life and nourishment to all His genuine seekers through a healthy interpretation from the original languages. The Devil certainly does not want to see this happen. That is why he stimulated many malicious minds to damage and deframe those who endeavor to spread God's Words and gospel.
I have many versions of Bible in English in front of me, and I have to tell from my conscience and experiences that the Recovery Version is the one that I treasured most. I have been enlightened and nourished by God's Words and the healthy interpretation in this easy-to-understand translation.
God bless you!
