Very pleased, is fun looking, easy to read, informative section in the front makes it great for somebody who is reading for the first time. Nice size, not too big, fits in my handbag but not so small that the writing is tiny.
I liked the cover on this book and wanted something easier than NIV for my 6yr old to read. However, upon opening the book there are a few pages at the front which explain briefly some modern issues. These include abortion and pornography and a few others & Im quite sure my 6yr old is not ready to read up about these. So I would say this bible is definatly for adults.
Very youth friendly, readable bible. Written in modern language, understandable, well illustrated and some great explanations, introductions and discussions in the front on topics and timelines in the bible.
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 comfortable reading one of the better translation in modern english in my opinion
