Description

Why another translation of the Bible?

As Tom Wright observes: `Translating [the bible] is something that each generation ought to be doing. Just as Jesus taught us to pray for our daily bread, we can never simply live on yesterday's bread, on the interpretations and translations of previous generations.'

The Bible for Everyone is the result of a passionate conviction that scripture should be something that everyone can read, understand and enjoy. Two world-renowned Bible scholars and communicators have therefore undertaken a tremendous task: to draw together, revise and supplement the translations that appear in their popular `For Everyone' commentaries, making a rounded, readable and reliable version of the Bible that will prove helpful to people of all religious backgrounds at every stage of their lives.

Broken up into easy-to-read, bite-sized chunks, and including helpful introductions to each biblical book plus informative maps and a substantial glossary of key words, here is a compelling new rendering of ancient wisdom that can be read like a novel, studied in sections or used as an aid to daily devotion.
