I have kept this book for quite a while now before posting a review, because it has been immensely helpful for a religion major like myself. This translation of the New Testament has given me an extra resource and go-to while working on homework and papers, but it also very refreshing to go to when I am just looking to read the word. I would highly suggest this translation for everyone’s book shelves, it is a nice addition to any Christian’s collection. The translation is easy to read and offers many great side notes and resources that are helpful for those who are new to the faith, to those who are biblical scholars. This translation is a must have!
