More About American Bible Society
The American Bible Society is an interdenominational, non-profit, donor-supported ministry whose mission is to make accurate and affordable translations of the Bible available to everyone. Founded in New York City in 1816, ABS is dedicated to presenting the Bible in compelling ways so that people can experience life in its fullness through faith in Jesus Christ. ABS is responsible for a number of "firsts": the first Bibles provided to the U.S. military in 1817, the first pocket Bibles for soldiers during the Civil War, and the first Bibles in hotels. The society extends its outreach internationally through the United Bible Societies (UBS), a fellowship of 126 international groups, and was instrumental in founding this global fellowship in the interest of efficiency and making a greater impact. In 1999 alone, more than 63 million copies of the Society's publications were distributed throughout the United States and the world.

Reviews - What do customers think about Good News Bible: With Deuterocanonicals/Apocrypha : English?
Good News Bible in Large Print May 8, 2008
I ordered this Bible as my sight seems to be declining. It is layed out exactly as the regular print, except it is larger in size and the bigger print - works great for me. Matter of fact, I bought a second for a family member.
Good News Bible Large Print Edition Apr 5, 2008
This Bible falls midway between being a literal (word-for-word) translation and one which uses the dynamic equivalent (modernizing and contextualizing a word or phrase) method. The reading level is suitable even for children and helps the message to come alive for everyone rather than being partially concealed by traditionalist/archaic wording. The typeface is very legible even in low light, but I actually miss the line drawings in other editions. The binding is paperback and there is no more-substantially bound large print edition available. This translation has the advantage of an exhaustive separate concordance being available, at least via the United Kingdom, unlike a number of other contemporary translations. I would rate this item as five except for the insubstantial binding and lack of drawings as well as some of the study helps in other editions of this translation.
THE BEST TRANSLATION YET, FOR REGULAR READING Jan 24, 2008
This is the best translation, for reading the Bible and not necessarily studying it. The line drawings are very interesting and compelling. This is the best NT I have ever come across. I highly recommend it. It is also very good as an evangelistic tool, to give someone this edition, whether a new believer or a believer who does not read the Bible too much because he or she gets bogged down in the formal language occasionally used. Nothing even remotely like this translation.
Good News about the Good News Bible Oct 10, 2007
I like this Bible. I especially like the LARGE print. I like the Good News version. It's easy to read and understand.
When I study the Bible, I keep several versions within arm's reach. Difficult passages are often made easier to interpret by comparing versions.
I purchased one computer Bible program solely because it contained both the GNB and Message Bible versions.
I highly recommend this Bible.
Good News Bible including the Apocrypha Jul 9, 2007
I ordered 30 of this item to send along in backpacks as a mission project. After the Bibles arrived, I found that they included the Apocrypha. I did not see any mention of this in the description.
