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.

Color illustrations and leather bound! Mar 23, 2008
I was surprised to see a new leather bound edition and bought it immediately. This edition combines the easy to understand, generally accurate text of the GNT with with hundreds of helpful, colorful line drawings. Before now, I have never seen the drawings in color. Apart from the graphic on the front cover (not offensive, but unneccessary and cheapens the look a bit) and a few renderings that are possible but neither probable nor preferred, this is a great Bible to have. It's just the right size with silver page edges and a ribbon marker. The leather isn't very good quality, but it's priced right. I recommend its purchase.
My Favorite Bible Dec 19, 2007
I have grown to love the Good News Translation and finally it has been published in bonded leather! This is a beautiful and accurate translation from the original languages, easy to read and understand, yet very reverent and powerfully interpereted. The illustrations are tastefully and beautifully done throughout and actually add desireability rather than detract. This is the centerpiece of my Bible collection and I read it daily.
