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 La Bible: Ancien et Nouveau Testament (French Edition)?
Ce livre est très bien! Jan 3, 2008
This is a book that I purchased for reading practice. I definitely like this bible but I'm looking for an easier version to read. This was a good purchase!
Very pleased with my purchase Dec 5, 2007
Just wanted to mention that this Bible is the type that zips up. I like this. Others may not. Since it wasn't mentioned in the description, I wanted to make note of it.
Great text for second language Oct 9, 2007
The review of 4 March 2003, by user sql3642, is the most accurate description of this product. Contrary to some of the other reviews this is NOT a revision of the LSG (Louis Segond) translation. This is a new translation altogether and is written in simpler and more direct French.
Useful features include a well written introduction explaining which original texts were used for the translation and a vocabulary section in the back for words that are not necessarily French or are not commonly used adopted words.
This translation is fantastic for an English speaking student of French. My only complaint is the lack of direct and accurate information about French translations in general. Even on the web site of the American Bible Society there isn't a truly authoritative guide to which publications of French bibles are which translation. Be careful; you may end up purchasing a translation you did not intend to. Also, this site links from this bible to hardcover editions of different translations. Be wary.
Je suis satisfait avec lui- I am pleased with it Jun 8, 2007
I simply love this text. The wording of many of the sacred scriptures have taken on greater meaning as a result of studying this text. i.e., Genesis 1:1, and Psalm 51, among many others.
A great companion to the King James Version in English. Studying the two side by side is a joy!
The cover/binding is beautiful, also.
I wiish there were more Jun 8, 2007
This was exactly the French Bible that I was searching for. My only regret is that there was only one of them. I had hoped to find four of them for graduation gifts.
