Reviews - What do customers think about Good News Bible With Deuterocanonicals/apocrypha-tev?
A good translation Aug 20, 2008
This book is a good size to carry with you when you travel or to have on your nightstand. Nice to have Deuterocanonials/apocrypha included.
Print too small! Jan 17, 2008
I do like the Good News Bible but there definitely needs to be something in the description of this item that indicates it is a 'travel size' edition. If I had known this, I would not have ordered it & then had to return it for the larger version.
This should be the up to date book given freely in every church, not the horrible NIV!!! Dec 31, 2007
This is probably the best up to date Bible of its day! Although I would love to see more left out books included, as in the Original Septuagint (Brenton's) and The Dead Sea Scrolls (poorly) translated english version. All of our Bibles are not translated as deeply or correctly as they could. This version with the so called title of "Deutero canonical/Apocrpha" which is man made, should be given out in this modern age of 2008. This Bible reads clearly and has the most books that I have ever seen as "The Holy Scriptures". This is an excellent starter Bible for children up onto evreyone else. If anyone did any true research themselves with the understanding of the Holy Spirit, they would come to the same conclusion that Dr. Andy Tryon and I and many others did. I was hesitant to accept other books to our Cannonized 66 books. But after prayer and deep study of all of the 1st English Bibles, I learned that there should be many more chapters and books in our Old Testament. The new I still stand on the 27 books due to hidden codes spelling out all 27 names.(See How We got Our Bible By chuck Missler-DVD... Just don't accept his research revealed on that about the Apocrypha. I have much moe evidence that proves that These other books and chapters should be in there. (See www.Drandytryon.com , click on "The Teaching" look for Apocrypha studies)) Anyways, this should be evryones 1st Bible or the NLT Catholic edition, which has some of the so called "Apocrypha" books and chapters too. But just don't interpret any of the Scriptures through the lenses of the Catholic glasses. It is the Most Satanic church out there! (See Dave Hunt or any Calvary chapel pastors for that, I reccommend "Catholicism verses Christianity" DVD's at Calvary Chapel Tri city in Tempe Arizona.) People are going to have to get different knowledge, Holy Spirit's presence and love from several different teachers! Unfortunately there isn't one yet that has it all. Anyone is welcome to receive and share what I have learned. I should be starting a home church sometime this year or next. contact me at Aigfan@hotmail.com or find Patrick Ramsdell in Columbus Ohio.
travel size Oct 17, 2007
It would have been nice to know this was the travel size edition. I would have forked over the extra $3.00 for the normal size to start with. This one is handy but the other one is easier to reference. I just ordered the other one.
this version is well suited for the catholic with limited space.
The Best Bible is a Read Bible Jun 10, 2007
With all respect to Mr. Merritt, I fit into none of his catagories of who should read this Bible translation.
My first Bible, given to me when I was eight, was a zippered King James Bible, with the gilt edges and red letters, and my name embossed on the cover. Very lovely and cherished, but ultimately not read much. My next Bible, given to me at age 14 at confirmation, was a Revised Standard version, read a little more often, and used for bible study later on.
But, when I found Christ at 16, I was given a Good News new testament, and that is what I read and what grounded me in my understanding of what being a Christian was all about.
The difference? It was readable.
For in-depth study, certainly use the (loftier?) deeper translations to hone your understanding. But remember, Martin Luther's first translation of the Latin texts into German was not into the Hoch Deutche of the day, but into the common language, so the everyday person (the Delberts, if you will) could understand God's word first-hand. And thus the Reformation grew.
The best Bible is a read Bible, in whatever version works best for you. This one works for me when I just want to sit down and read.
