This is my choice of bible,
This review is from: Book of God: The Bible as a Novel (Paperback)
This book made daily bible reading a pleasure. Both contemprary and scriptural it is a novel as likely to be read as any picked up from an airport newsagents. It has the emotion and impact of the orriginal text, often more so. Brings out colour and depth.
There's a lot of specifics missing, as it is not a direct translation but an adaptations, and if you are seeking a chapter and verse reading you will be disapointed.
I find it a great starting point to get your thoughts together on a section of the Bible. I see it having great applications for youth work meetings and even sunday school readings.
