Great for Modern English Even now,
This review is from: Good News Bible (New Life) (Hardcover)
As far as I am concerned the closer to Context of original Manuscripts the better.
but as a Modern Paraphrase goes this still stands high up on the list.
Most excellent is the front pages and categories of subjects and character studies.
it at least to some extent retains the real message of the Bible
and is easy enough for most age groups to read and understand
well set out
easy to grasp
one of the better translation in modern english in my opinion
