How about taking a "test drive" of a new translation before you buy?
The people who published the Common English Bible have provided a web site where you can do just that!
You can look up any verse you'd like and see how it reads in the CEB. Just go here.
They've also provided a site where you can download some PDFs and listen to MP3s of the CEB. You'll find that here.
And the CEB has some cool maps by the National Geographic. You'll be able to see them here.
Check it out! Look up your favorite verse and see how it reads in the CEB!
I am taking part in a blog tour of the Common English Bible. I'll be blogging more about this Bible as the days go by.
You can see the blogs of others taking part of this tour here: http://CommonEnglishBible.com/CEB/blogtour
I received a complimentary copy of the CEB from its publisher for the purpose of this blog tour.
