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 Japanese/English New Testament?
Not for beginners Mar 6, 2008
If you are just staring to read Japanese and can't read Kanji yet, then I do not recommend this version. It does not have furigana (hiragana above Kanji script) If you are looking for furignana Bible I recommend "Bilingual Bible" English and Japanese.
Small and easy to read! Mar 25, 2006
I really like this bible because it has both the Japanese and the English translations side by side in two columns on the same page. It makes it very easy to read, and it is small and beautiful as well. I recommend this to any Japanese-speaking person who is interested in what the bible says, especially because the Good News Version is straight forward and easy to understand, as compared to the King James Version.
Formal versus Normal Jun 14, 2004
I bought this Japanese Bible for a Japanese friend. Her English would be considered "Intermediate". After reading part of Matthew she told me the Japanese is of the older, more formal style. She sometimes had to refer to the English to understand the Japanese (remember: she is Japanese). I read part of the English and it is excellent for someone who is learning English. The Japanese Scripture translation should have been a simpler one.
You'll have to wait a year for this one... Jan 25, 2004
While the Bible is a great book (hence the 5 stars), it does not take anywhere near 1-3 weeks. I'd give it no stars for shipping/receiving time. I ordered this book in December and have yet to receive it. I keep getting notices saying it's being delayed. I am not to receive it until at the latest Feb 19. That's 2 months after the order date. Consider this if you're thinking about buying this book from this site.
