With the new Quickfinder guide and the easy-to-read Contemporary English Version Bible text, this is the most accessible Bible ever. The Contemporary English Version is the easiest to read Bible translation available, which is why it is so widely used by Scripture Union, The Bible Society, The Bible Reading Fellowship and Scripture Gift Mission. In this new format, the Quickfinder guide lets you dive straight in to the Bible wherever you want, whether that's Psalm 23 -- The Lord is my Shepherd, or Noah and the Ark, or the Feeding of the Five Thousand, or the Parable of the Lost Son. The Contemporary English Version is a fresh, readable translation of the Bible, from the original languages. The dramatic events and life-changing message of the Bible are accurately conveyed in straight-forward everyday terms. Instead of translating each word, the CEV works to interprete each sentence or idea, making this up to date version the easiest to read and understand, as well as read out loud. The Collins Plain English Bible presents God's timeless truth in the clearest possible way, making it ideal for anyone new to the Bible, or who just wants to get more out of it.
