I love the JB Phillips translation and use it along with my NIV and ESV when I am studying the New Testament. I only wish I could find a better quality binding! I am giving it as a gift that I hope will be used for a long, long time. Sad to say it is also probably out of print? It would be worth the cost to find it in hardback or leather.
By the way the service was amazing! In the midst of Christmas rush my package came in just a couple days. Thank you!
I ordered this because I was given one when I was in my early teens and over the many years since I wore it out then lost it.
It is everything I remembered it was as a translation that was current to the day both then and now.
As a serious student of the Word, I love to read and compare in many different versions and CBD offers that opportunity again with this Phillips translation that I have been missing for more than a decade.
It is a simple, clean, easy to use copy of my favorite New Testament versions.
