The Good News Bible CE was mentioned on another thread… I happen to collect bibles and lots of times when I buy them I just sit them on a shelf. Anyway when this one was mentioned I retrieved it from the shelf. The full title is"Good News Bible with Deuteroncanonicals/Apocrypha and Lectionary guide. It has .the Imprimatur.
My question is–it is very easy to read and I was told that it is a thought for thought instead of a word for word translation. So can some one tell me some pros or cons about this bible? Would anyone recommend it?
I am currently using the Jerusalem Bible and the DR with Haydock commentary.
