Scott SnyderVaAge: 55-65Gender: male3 Stars Out Of 5OK- But not the bestAugust 16, 2013Scott SnyderVaAge: 55-65Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 3I bought this because I didn't have a CEB bible yet and wanted to compare it to other translations that I have.
First this particular bible has a 10 point type face not 12 as listed. The print quality is high though and there is enough space between the lines to make it readable to me.
The Deco Tone cover can be easily scratched or marred with your finger nail so you may want to think about getting a bible cover if you buy it. The binding quality is also very good.
This bible claims to be an accurate translation but makes use of idioms in the English language such as
"no strings attached" which seems out of place to me when reading it.
"Son of Man" in Ezekiel and the Gospel is translated as "The Human One" - I definitely don't care for that.
If you already have some other translation that you are satisfied with I can't think of any reason to buy this translation. It may have some benefit for people changing from a paraphrase bible to a word for word translation or someone for a first time bible.
Overall I prefer the CEB it above the NRSV but below pretty much everything else, including the NIV (1984 version), NKJV, ESV, NASB, HCSB, even the NLT and the Living Bible paraphrase.
My overall feeling on the CEB translation is that if they are going to use English language idioms in some verses they might as well write a paraphrase bible. I think the CEB translation is closet in style to the NCV translation.
