Item description for Holy Bible: Recovery Version Burgandy Bonded Leather by Living Stream...
Overview A devotion to and love for the Bible has made possible a broad range of good translations which have rendered immense help to serious students who have not been able to translate the Scriptures on their own. Both Watchman Nee and Witness Lee desired to study the bible thoroughly so that the Lord would open the Word richly among us. While Watchman Nee at times translated short portions of the Scriptures for his messages, it was Witness Lee who realized the great benefit in translating the Bible. In 1974, as he embarked upon the life-study of the Bible, he initiated the work of translating the New Testament into English, directing a small team of brothers and sisters to translate from the original language as the life-study progressed through the entire New Testament. The issue of this effort was the Recovery Version of the New Testament, which was published in its current revised form in 1991. In 1989, as Witness Lee proceeded to release his life-study of the Old Testament, he again directed a new translation endeavor in English, this time of the Old Testament, and again from the original languages. As the work proceeded book by book, Witness Lee reviewed the translation and made numerous improvements and suggestions, both prior to publication and during his use of each book during his life-study trainings. The Recovery Version translation of the Holy Bible, containing both Old Testament and New Testament was published in February 1999. The Recovery Version of the Bible, including outlines, footnotes, and cross-references for both the Old and New Testaments is now available.

Excellent Help to Understand the Word of God Apr 8, 2008
I love to read the Bible and own more than 30 different translations of the Bible. I also know Greek and Hebrews (having a degree on Biblical Study from Fuller Theological Seminary) so I compared the translations from various versions. Recovery Version is one of the best translations.
Recovery Version also provides many outstanding outlines for each book and footnotes for verse understanding. The outlines help me to understand the thought of the writers who were inspired by the Holy Spirit. The footnotes explain the verses according to the other verses from the Bible and comprise the riches from Bible lovers/seekers during the past 20 centuries. It saves me a lot of time and leads me into the riches of God's word immediately.
For above divisionism Scripture Thirsty students Nov 2, 2006
The more I learn Greek and Hebrew, the more I read bible versions in different languages, the more I am convinced this is the very best version ever! Not only in terms of dinamic/formal equivalence balance. Also in terms of considering the Bible as a whole, as the work of one only and the same author! The outlines show a unique understanding of the bible's unity, hardly ever before shown by scholars who study it book by book, making in practice the Holy Spirit's authorship nothing more than a theoretical Systematic Theology construct. The outlines and footnotes(on the edition with footnotes) show an understanding of the revelation and a uniformity in principles of interpretation far above the Reformed/Non-reformed/Orthodox, Calvinism/Arminianism, Trinitarianism/Unitarianism, and other usual so-called stalemates of organized Christendom. It is the Bible for the centered christian and student who looks far above the divisionism of the Body of Christ. When I write this, I am but simply checking with the whole of Christian scholarship.
The Most Accurate English Translation to Date! Jan 1, 2006
Although not a part of this denomination's movement, I used this version throughout Seminary training, and it continues to be my staple in all my studies and discussions. It is both accurate to the original tongues and easy to read. Many misinterpretations and invalid arguements are handled simply by using this text (since many other English versions use a dynamic equivalent approach to interpretation that lends them to inaccuraces). Unlike those of Witness Lee's cult, I found the omissions of his comments a blessing since Mr. Lee filters much Eastern Mysticism into his explanations. Still a great version which you will use more and more as you study more deeply into the Scriptures.
Not what I expected Oct 27, 2005
The Holy Bible recovery version is nothing like the New Testament recovery version. There is no interpretation under verses like in the New Testament version. I was disapointed and returned the book.
a review of the Holy Bible Recovery Version Apr 23, 2005
I had the New Testament Recovery Version for years, so I was happy when Living Stream Ministry published the Holy Bible and I am now even more pleased that they have published the Holy Bible with footnotes. The footnotes unlock the deep significance and rich enjoyment in many passages in the Word. The Recovery Version with the footnotes has been incalculably helpful. In regards to the translation without the footnotes, I give it 5 stars because the Bible is the most influential and profound book I've ever read and this translation is clear and accurate.
