More About American Bible Society


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 Global bible for Children - CEV (The Global Bible)?

Interesting facts inside, but not helpful for children to read the Bible  Mar 28, 2006
The American Bible Society's The Global Bible for Children is a colorful Bible with engrossing pictures and entertaining information. The solid cover looks as if it should survive little hands fairly well. It includes colorful pictures from around the world, boxes of interesting facts, challenges to find information, pages about numerous countries, a section of maps, and a dictionary. Each book begins with a brief summary of the contents. Headings summarize each passage. A degree sign marks notes within the passage which are explained at the end of the book.

The introduction to the translation, the Global Contemporary English Version, says that "it differs from all other English Bibles...in that it takes into consideration the needs of the listener, as well as those of the reader, who may not be familiar with traditional biblical language." It does flow well as you read it aloud. The passages that I read seemed well translated, but I am no expert.

However, it's a little harder to find references than in a traditional Bible. The tops of the pages carry the book's title and the page number. You have to search down through the small numbers to find the reference once you've found the chapter. The font seems a little small for young readers (and for middle-aged reviewers).

The maps included are not the traditional Bible-related maps of ancient kingdoms, but are modern political maps. That's helpful for their country fact pages, but doesn't help you find Ur of the Chaldees, Bethlehem, or Paul's journeys.

The engaging pictures and factual information, though fascinating, rarely have anything to do with the surrounding text. For all its color and interesting facts, I'm not sure how helpful it would be in encouraging a child to read or listen to the Bible. That said, I would consider giving it to a child, though it would not be my first choice. -- Debbie W. Wilson, Christian Book Previews.com
