The 1,000 words were designed for communicating the Bible to those with limited education or where English is a second language, and this still functions. However, there is a secondary benefit, that for some will be a reason to make this favoured choice. It moves the Bible from being a literary text to one laden with punchy, earthy meaning, a lively communication to people that has its own merit. Remember that fishermen were not scholars. There are versions of the two separate part Old Testaments and a combined Bible and collectable editions, but it is maybe time it was reissued.
