Reviews - What do customers think about Japanese English Bilingual Bible (Japanese and English Edition)?
Cheaper right from the publisher Mar 12, 2008
This is an excellent Bible. My bone to pick is that it is very large and heavy. We give it as a gift to our Japanese exchange students while they visit the U.S. It is invaluable in helping them to understand their visits to church. The problem is that it uses up a lot of their 50 lb. checked baggage weight limit, when they fly back to Japan. We worry that it is the first thing to go in the garbage at the airport when their bags are overlimit. There is another bilingual Bible, in small format, with no helps in back, but I haven't been able to find one since 2004. We bought it for $25 back then. Please email me if anyone has a source for it. Now, this version is the only one we can find, and it is cheaper straight from the International Bible Society [...].
The Magnificent Japanese-English Bible Nov 14, 2007
The Japanese-English Bible is so wonderful. I am a native-English speaker and am learning Japanese so it is wonderful to see English and Japanese translations of the bible side by side. The NIV is my favorite translation of the bible as well. it's hardcover so the bible last forever. there are two cloth bookmarks attached to the bible. i think every kanji has the furigana pronunciation above it. i was a little disappointed when i read "tomodachi" and only the "tomo"'s kanji was given since I have since learned the whole word's characters, but it is still good for me to know the pronunciation and what part of the word each kanji makes. this is a fascinating buy and it's something i don't regret!
This is the one Oct 9, 2007
If you are a native English speaker living in Japan or studying Japanese, and if you need the WHOLE Bible with side-by-side translations on each page, with furigana over the Kanji to show you how the Kanji is pronounced, then this is the Bible for you.
This is a wonderful tool to be able to share the gospel with our Japanese friends.
Great for an English reader to study Japanese! Aug 4, 2007
The English and Japanese texts run alongside each other, with the English at times spaced out so that the two translations of the same verse in the two languages are lined up as much as possible. That makes it easy to jump back and forth between the languages.
I do sometimes use a magnifying glass to read the furigana (hiragana pronunciations in extra small print directly above the kanji). As I am learning the symbols more and more, however, I am using the magnifying glass less. The book itself is smaller than I had envisioned -- comparable to my English study Bible.
I am very pleased with this purchase -- it is exactly what I was looking for!
