The best translation, 14 May 2013
For me, this is the best available translation of the Bible for study purposes. It does has one or two drawbacks such as its reliance on the Masoretic Text for the Old Testament and its use of technical religious terms.
Particularly useful are the coloured illustrations and maps. I also like the way it highlights important Notes, such as 'Profiles', 'Did You Know?' and 'Major Events'. I would recommend it to anyone who wants to study the Bible seriously.
