‘The Rainbow GNB is perfect because it is a translation which is accessible, which does not compromise the dignity or complexity of the stories, but also maintains a certain degree of challenging language. I like the fact that the GNB is set out in the traditional style of a Bible, preparing children to use other versions as they grow up, which in the classroom situation is ideal when the children can be guided through it.’ -Mr N. Hawker, Deputy Head, Polwhele House School, Cornwall
‘Too many people read the Bible with a severe face, but I say no, the Bible is not that. The Bible is life, and it is wonderful!’ – Annie Vallotton, Illustrator.
About the Author
The Good News Bible was the world’s first truly “easy-to-read” Bible translation. In its first edition published under the title Good News for Modern Man it was a bestseller, and today is still the UK’s most popular Bible translation.
The GNB aims to give today’s readers maximum understanding of the content of the original Hebrew and Greek texts. It does not follow the traditional vocabulary and style found in historic English Bible versions; instead, it attempts to present the biblical content and message in standard, everyday, natural English – and it’s regularly updated to make sure it reflects contemporary English usage. Published by Collins in partnership with the Bible Society.
