Shelfari edited the description of CEB Common English with Apocrypha Tuesday, June 28, 2011.
Take a fresh look at the Bible while you experience a new translation. The Common English Bible combines a commitment to both accuracy and readability. The result is a new version of the Bible the typical reader or worshipper is able to understand with ease. Written in today's modern English, the Common English Bible was created through the careful work of 118 leading biblical scholars from 22 faith traditions and thorough field tests by 77 reading groups. Includes Apocrypha books. ENDORSEMENT: “Our reading group was transformed by this experience of reading and commenting on the Common English Bible. It’s significant that people from age 15 to 85 were so fired up by reading the translation.” -–Eileen Parfrey, Springwater Presbyterian Church, Estacado, Oregon Please note: If you purchased an eBook version of the Common English Bible on June 15-18 that was missing the linked Table of Contents, you should receive an update from Amazon.com with the corrected file soon. We appreciate your patience and understanding.
