Common English Bible: Free Today

Today and tomorrow, you can get the Common English Bible – ePub Edition for free. It’s a great translation, which we’ve been using at Solomon’s Porch recently.

What is the CEB?

The Common English Bible is not simply a revision or update of an existing translation. It is a bold new translation designed to meet the needs of Christians as they work to build a strong and meaningful relationship with God through Jesus Christ.

A key goal of the CEB translation team is to make the Bible accessible to a broad range of people; it’s written at a comfortable level for over half of all English readers. As the translators do their work, reading specialists from more than a dozen denominations review the texts to ensure a smooth and natural reading experience. Easy readability can enhance church worship and participation, and personal Bible study. It also encourages children and youth to discover the Bible for themselves, perhaps for the very first time.

    $30 dollar savings, awesome!

    I’m always interested in the translations of Matthew 5:5 and Matthew 11:12 and I really like the ones in this Bible.

    “Happy are people who are humble, because they will inherit the earth.”

    “From the days of John the Baptist until now the Kingdom of Heaven is violently attacked as violent people seize it.”

        Ah ok – clearly Amazon aren’t feeling a lot of love for the UK.
