Word Come Alive is an expanded translation (paraphrase) of the New Testament of the Bible by respected editor Martin Manser. It aims to express the sense of the original in contemporary, natural English to have a powerful effect on readers, with a fresh, incisive quality that will make readers sit up and think. It supplies linking phrases and background information in italics within the text to help make its message more immediately understandable. I and my reviewers have worked from and checked my text against United Bible Societies' 4th edition/26th and 27th editions of Novum Testamentum Graece [Greek New Testament] (Nestle-Aland) as well as other English translations. My reviewers are respected NT authorities: Dr Gervais Angel, formerly NT Greek Examiner for the Church of England and tutor in NT Greek, Trinity College, Bristol, England, and Dr Pieter Lalleman, Tutor in Biblical Studies, Spurgeon's College, London, England.
