This paraphrase of the Greek New Testament is a wonderfully readable version. If you are already familiar with a passage it throws fresh light on God's Word. Very enjoyable. I received my first copy of this when I was in Jr. High school in 1967. God continues to use it to speak to me. ( )

Multiple copies. This one I used to teach Sunday School, lead prayer and Bible Study. With short Index and maps.

The translator notes that "I find myself therefore indebted to all kinds of people of different nationalities and different denominations....at the very heart and core of our Faith, Christians are far more at one than their outward divisions would imply." [xi]

Phillips addresses the translation issues very briefly in an introduction.
