Reviews - What do customers think about The New Testament In Modern English: Student Edition?
A great purchase May 25, 2010
The Phillips translation of the New Testament is a clear and easily understood translation by a noted scholar. I wish that he had been able to completely translate the Old Testament, too, but I also recommend his translation of some of the OT prophets.
Still a Keeper Oct 29, 2009
Yes, it's a paraphrase of the Christian Scriptures, but easily one of the most readable that is still close to being a good translation as well (without a particular bias).
Good Description - Bad Product Received Sep 19, 2009
I ordered from Rodney E. Layne of Media Bazaar in Glen Allen VA a Phillips New Testament in Modern English that was supposed to have been in excellent condition, still in the box with only a name on the fly cover. What I received is a worn out book with cover coming off of it! It would not even rate poor quality.
To be unpleased is an understatement it is just a deception and I filled that I have paid for something that I could not even resale at a used book store.
Will make me think twice before ordering from this site used selection again.
A wonderful and thoughtful translation Aug 5, 2009
I like having the entire New Testament in one book. The translation is thoughtful and it is very obvious that there has been great effort to use words that express as close to the meaning of the original as possible. I have used in along with many other translations and believe this to be so.
I have one complaint, however. The type on the very course paper almost smudges and isn't pleasant to read. I would love to get a better copy with better production values.
book review Apr 14, 2009
This paperback Bible is just as advertised. My purchase was exactly what I expected
