The Bible of all people Aug 25, 2009
It is finally a book that one can read and understand in their own language and it becomes a novel of understanding and "wow, I didn't know that!" I love this book and will cherish it always. You see God in ways that you have not ever seen or understood Him before. It is magnificent!
Easy to Understand Mar 4, 2009
I have the NKJV of the Bible which is a little hard for me to understand but along with the Seek Find Bible it is so much easier for me to understand. I enjoy it very much.
One of the worst bible translation Sep 20, 2008
CEV is probably one of the worst bible translation ever that i have come across with. In my collection i have almost all the english bible translation available today (in actual physical book). In just The book of Galatians alone :- It translated paul as saying "i swear" which is contrary to Christ teaching on swearing. It also translated "physical weakness" as sickness in the same book. It translated working miracles among you as "miracles in you" It translated "foolish galatians" as "Stupid galatians" which once again contradicts the teaching of Christ of not to call your brethen fools / stupid It translated "right hand of fellowship" or "acceptance of co-worker" as "handshake"
And that is just one book! Better modern translations are ESV and Holsman.
Great translation, easy to read Aug 30, 2008
I just bought this bible and I love how easy it is to read. I can read it to my child and she understands, the translation doesn't sound "dumbed down", yet it's still simplified. And not seem so bland as paraphrases usually are. I like the structure and how the books are set up with the lil outline in the beginning of each. And how the chapters are divided based on the subject the verses are about. I definately recommend this bible translation. The "Seek Find" book with this translation is very simplified as well, basics. And if you want to just read the Bible at home, it's perfect.
Bible Clarity Aug 12, 2008
If you've struggled with understanding the bible, this translation will open up the meaning with such ease, it's wonderful. So easy to read, really!
