The Expanded Bible is a more accurate edition of the New Century Version that captures the nuances of the literal Greek and Hebrew text through the use of bracketed literal translations and comments. Clear, single column font make this Bible very readable. Recommendations: add Book Intros and a concordance. Excellent value for the money! Smyth Sewn binding.
This is a wonderful tool for bible study. Features include: Literal Meanings, References, Expanded Translations, Traditional Wordings, Comments that explain content, and Wide Margins for note taking. It's an easy read, and has clear printing so the eyes don't get strained. This is a must have for those who are in search of depth and clarity in studying God's word.
The format is in single column, the text is bold and easy to read, the binding is excellent though I do pray there will a premium leather edition in the future. As for the translation itself...after selling Bibles for over 20 years I can honestly say this is one of the best translations to date. The reader can read for him/herself what the original authors intended to say. Probably as close as one can get without learning Hebrew and Greek.
