Product description


This is a significant new Bible version offering an easy-to-read and accurate text. Sentences are short and simple in structure. The introductions to each book are written in an engaging style . . . This version should be made accessible to the modern day school population. Dr Debra Reid, Tutor in Old Testament and Open Learning, Spurgeon's College

New Light is a great Bible to use with children. Every book is written at a level they can understand without being boring or missing bits out. It's easy to follow, clearly set out and beautifully illustrated - the children I work with love it! (Lisa Potts, GM)

An exciting new resource which can be used to introduce children to the beauty and grandeur of the Old and New Testament. The user-friendly layout and charming illustrations offer easy access to the text, providing a great new tool for classroom teaching or individual pupil research. (Janet King B.Ed (Hons), DASE, Association of Chris)

This edition can only help to promote biblical study, both in the school and the wider context. I will recommend this edition to Religious Education teachers at every opportunity. Stephen Bowler, Subject Officer, Edexcel Foundation, London Examinations

Jenny Williams' artwork is clear and uplifting, illustrating biblical stories in a vibrantly colourful and kindly light - a stimulating yet gentle effect on the eye, likely to assist learning with interest and joy. (David Fairhust B.Ed (Hons), DASE, Association of C)

The great strength of the New Light Bible is the ability to combine a scholarly translation with a modern and accessible style. This makes it an ideal translation to use with young people and adults alike. John Logan, Director, BFSS National RE Centre, Brunel University

In a society where everything has to be constantly updated, the Bible is no exception and this one keeps abreast of changing language use and new translation insights. It reads very well aloud. Professor Terence Copley, School of Education, Exeter University

Excellent presentation and clear readable print. The language is appropriate for young children; reasonable readers from 6 to 7 years old could read and copy with it. The bright and colourful illustrations are a good focus for catching and maintaining the children's attention. (R. Braund, Head Teacher, St Mary's CE Primary Scho)

The New Light Bible is very easy to read . . . I particularly enjoyed the introduction to each book, giving a brief synopsis and 'setting the scene'. This edition can only help to promote biblical study, both in the school and the wider context. I will recommend this edition to Religious Education teachers at every opportunity. (Stephen Bowler, Subject Officer Edexcel Foundation)
