    This small book is an excellent behind-the-scenes insider look at the ups and downs of the decade-long project of bringing a very unique Bible translation to market, not to mention great insights into Bible translation in general. The goal of producing a Bible for people who are not Bible-literate was not without its challenges, and this is story of how the translation team labored over passages, sentences, phrases and even single words.

    The book also shows the respect the team had for everything that has gone before, from the KJV to The Message. This is an engaging story unto itself, but now I want to get my hands on a copy of the actual Bible!
