Great Bible version Jan 9, 2007
I love this version of the Bible, such simple writing and yet the spiritual implications are never lost. Easy to read, easy to understand.

Makes the Bible Really Come Alive Nov 6, 2006
Some 35 years after its release, The Living Bible Paraphrased can still excite. Be aware that this is indeed a paraphrase, and NOT a translation, and has been done by one man, the late Ken Taylor. It is meant as a reading Bible, and not meant for study---if you want to seriously study the Bible, use a good, formal equivalent translation, such as NASB, HCSB, NKJV, KJV, or even the NIV, for that matter. Untold thousands of people came to Christ, thanks to the Living Bible. God used this book in a powerful way. Many persons who never, ever, would pick up a Bible, read the Living Bible and became Christians. I've seen people carrying this green hardback for so long that it had actually turned black, and would read no other Bible. This particular edition, I could do without the red lettering very easily. But, as I stated above, this will make the Bible come so alive for you. Buy one. Try it---you'll like it.
Living Bible red-letter with green hardcover Aug 21, 2006
This Bible is small enough to carry, yet the print is large enough to easily read. Additionally, the quotes of Jesus Christ in red letters is a very nice feature, as well as the fact that the Bible is easier to read because it has been translated into modern English (including ancient Hebrew idioms). I would recommend this version to anybody who wants to enjoy reading the Bible in regular "modern English" and get the major concepts, without the difficulty of having to try to understand old English words. It is an excellent version for a Bible study.
A Grand Version, But Caution Advised. Aug 12, 2006
My father was old school Anglican. So he naturally liked the "King James" version. My mother leans towards the "New Jerusalem" version. The "Living" version is my personal favorite. But, more than any Bible, this is one that I would NOT suggest you read until AFTER you have a knowledge of the Bible and why the different sections of the Bible were written. NOR would I suggest this Bible if you are going through a crisis in faith. The reason is simple enough. If you are new to the Bible, the "Good News" version is probably your best bet. While the "King James" version leans towards beautiful and poetic language, the "Living" does just the opposite of the "King James." The best comparison I can make is that if you are familiar with Nathaniel Hawthorne's writing, you know that he can be very fierce. (Notably in his "Scarlet Letter.") The "Living Bible" is made up of dramatic and fierce passages. EXAMPLE: In the Gospel According to John, most of us know how Jesus saved the woman accused of adultery from being stoned. In the "Good News" version, Jesus stops the people who were going to stone her with the words: "Whichever one of you has committed no sin may throw the first stone at her" ("John" 8:7). In the "King James" version, Jesus says: "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone at her" ("John" 8:7). In the "Living Bible" Jesus puts it quite differently: "All right, hurl the stones at her until she dies. But only he who never sinned may throw the first" ("John" 8:7)! While I like this version of the Bible, I will be the first to admit that the language can be quite disturbing in some areas, and it will probably do more harm than good to someone who is trying to learn the Bible or wrestling with the decision to go to church or not. (While this is my favorite version of the Bible, I CAN understand why the writer Father Brown does not suggest it. He said in his "Responses to 101 Questions on the Bible:" 'I do not like the ultraconservative evangelical tone that at times, in my judgement leads to mistranslations.') If you are already comfortable with the Bible and are well grounded in your faith, then like me you may find this to be a more dramatic and exciting version. However, if you are still learning the Bible or are not so sure of your faith, then this version of the Bible is NOT for you. Go with the "Good News" version in that event.
