Great Bible, easy to understand

I dislike this translation very very much. This seems like a watered down version. It might as well be named, Bible of Dummies. Hmmmm, there's more truth in that than meets the eye. ( )

A gift from a friend. Not a version I would personally use as a scholarly text. ( )

I have here translated, brethren and sisters most dear and tenderly beloved in Christ, the New Testament for your spiritual edifying, consolation and solace, exhortynge instantly and besechynge those that are better sene in the tongues than I, and that have higher gifts of grace to interpret the sense of Scripture, and meaning of the Spirit, than I, to consider and ponder my labor, and that with the spirit of meekness.  And if they perceive in any places that I have not attained the very sense of the tongue, or meaning of the scripture, or have not given the right English word, that they put to their hands to amend it, remembering that so is their duty to do.  For we have not received the gifts of God for ourselves only or for to hide them;  but for to bestow them unto the honoring of God and Christ and edifying of the congregation, which is the body of Christ. -From Wm. Tyndale's Prologue to the first printed English New Testament published in 1525
First words
When God began creating the heavens and the earth, the earth was at first a shapeless, chaotic mass, with the Spirit of God brooding over the dark vapors.

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0842322507, Imitation Leather)

Celebrating 40 years and over 40 million lives touched, Tyndale is releasing the familiar green hardcover binding of The Living Bible with a fresh new interior. Features include a Bible reading plan, four-color maps, and a topical concordance. The uncluttered, 2-column format makes for easy reading. The Living Bible is a paraphrase of the Old and New Testaments. Its purpose is to say as exactly as possible what the writers of the Scriptures meant, and to say it simply, expanding where necessary for a clear understanding by the modern reader.
