It is a rare and wonderful thing when undisputedly strong scholarship and reader accessibility come together, and yet that is exactly what has happened in this new and altogether impressive translation of the scriptures, the Common English Bible. You will find yourself reading certain passages as if for the first time. I highly commend the CEB to scholars, students, and seekers alike who want to explore the richness of God's Word in a fresh way.
