I have used this version of the bible in my English as a Second language class for some time. It is very usable for people learning English. I thought it would be even more helpful to have this tool available to give to other teachers & students showing an interest. It is certainly economical. it's a pity that the freight is so expensive to Australia.
For some people in our bible study group, the Contemporary English Version, is easier for them to understand. Some of them have difficulty reading English and this version of the bible is very good for them.
Further, some people do not read English. According to those who translate, it is one of the easiest versions to verbally translate into another language.
As a further note, there is also a Large Print CEV which is also beneficial for some older people who have difficulty seeing.
