The Wikipedia article on the Contemporary English Version is very informative on the history and principles of this translation, with illustrations of translated passages. I find it good to use for children, and the text seems easy to put into drama form. The purposely simple language makes the Psalms weak - not enough synonyms are available to the translators - and I assume that this will apply to other poetry passages too. The Amazon site does not say so, but the Kindle edition is the US edition, not the anglicized one, which is a nuisance (Goliath's armour weighs 125 pounds). I found the easiest way to move about the Kindle edition was to bookmark the contents lists of the Old and New Testaments (locations 389 and 399), and the beginning of each book can then easily be found from there. So a useful translation, and for some purposes very useful, but I would not use it as my main translation.

4.0 out of 5 stars Christians Beware! The CEV IS Reliable. 27 Mar 2011
By A. Rowe
Format:Kindle Edition
Christians beware! NB of Birmingham recommends a book by Jason David BeDuhn, Truth in Translation: Accuracy and Bias in English Translations of the New Testament, and gives a rather unkind review of the CEV. In his book,Jason BeDuhn recommends the Jehovah's Witness translation of the Scriptures as the most accurate translation. 'Nuff said. The CEV is, in fact, a rather good modern translation of the Bible. It paraphrases the text somewhat to bring out the meaning, but there is no doubt in my mind that the translators were sincere in their efforts to be true to the original text. The CEV is not as widely read as the NIV, but is a good alternative translation for those who like to have more than one version of the Scriptures to which to refer.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good to read aloud translation 4 Dec 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is a very good translation which has been put together especially so that it flows well when read aloud. The Kindle version is straightforward to navigate. A good addition for Bible Study. Could be a good version to give someone who finds traditional versions difficult. I chose it because this translation is often referred to in my Bible notes/ readings and I have found it a useful alternative translation.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Good Book. 2 Nov 2013
By . Mary
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I find it comfortable to hold. The clear printing makes it easy to read even with my troublesome eyesight.
It is well set out, encouraging me not only to start reading but to also to continue even beyond my intended portion.

3.0 out of 5 stars You get what you pay for 25 Sep 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The downside of cheap Bibles is that the paper and typeface are not terribly attractive. It does what it says on the box - it is the CEV (American version, without Apocrypha), but the lower quality paper could be off-putting to some of the young people we plan to use these Bibles with.
