Bible Teacher5 Stars Out Of 5East To Read And Easy To UnderstandJanuary 5, 2018Bible TeacherQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I purchased this and found it easily readable. So much so that it's hard to put down.
It's also based on the latest scholarship as regards the underlying Hebrew and Greek texts.
The spurious verses that weigh down the so-called Textus Receptus are removed and not missed by anyone serious about getting God's word in their heart and mind.
This is one of my favorite translations to read and I recommend it highly to anyone looking for a Bible that is easy to read, understand in modern English.
I have bought multiple copies and distributed them to other lovers of God's word and they were received with the same appreciation for the high quality of the English as well as the excellent qualities of the bonded leather reference edition.
The text is easy to read with or without glasses and the Bible fits nicely in hand while being read.
My only complaint is the removal of the personal name of the Author of Scripture. Jehovah or Yahweh should have been used as this is what the God of Moses said His name is and was to be for all eternity.
Exodus 3:15 Common English Bible (CEB)
"15 God continued, Say to the Israelites, The LORD, the God of your ancestors, Abraham's God, Isaac's God, and Jacob's God, has sent me to you. THIS IS MY NAME FOREVER; this is how all generations will remember me."
Exodus 3:15 American Standard Version (ASV 1901)
"15 And God said moreover unto Moses, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, JEHOVAH, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: THIS IS MY NAME FOREVER, and this is my memorial unto all generations."
Exodus 3:15 Holman Christian Standard Bible (HCSB)
"15 God also said to Moses, Say this to the Israelites: YAHWEH, the God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac, and the God of Jacob, has sent me to you. THIS IS MY NAME FOREVER; this is how I am to be remembered in every generation.
As the Preface to the Reader of the American Standard Version 1901 says the removal of the divine name Jehovah is due to a jewish superstition and should not influence English translations today.

Baker1 Stars Out Of 5A Paraphrase in Sheep's ClothingAugust 31, 2014BakerThe C.E.B. is supposedly a translation. But, a mere skimming of its contents belie that claim. It is a paraphrase and, like paraphrases, what you read is filtered through the biases of the editors. Two key objectives were realized at the expense of translation precisions: gender neutrality and wordings deemed "acceptable" across a wide spectrum of denominational beliefs. Furthermore, the sponsors of this effort are all denominations which have backed away from any claims that the Bible is THE authoritative basis for Christian beliefs & practices; many in the denominations backing this effort have relegated significant parts of the Bible to myths, allegories, legends and have bought into completely the 'documentary hypothesis' and the denigration of many prophetic books as late-dated historical accounts after the fact. Furthermore, the editors of this effort have relied wholeheartedly on the Hort-Wescott efforts which are seriously flawed - as were the authors themselves. (Any serious research into these authors makes you wonder why anyone would take their outputs without reservations.) It also relies completely on the Codexes (Sinaiticus & Vaticanus) to the exclusion of the Textus Receptus which can be argued is a superior starting point for a precise NT translation.
A Bible student ought to have a couple of study Bibles. I would, however, recommend study Bibles be chosen among the following: KJV, NKJV, ESV, NASB and HCSB. Though no extant Bible translation can be an exact translation of the original autographs (because no complete copies exist), superior translation committees guided by The Holy Spirit can offer spiritually inerrant translations of God's Word. But, that requires using the best translators and objective editors NOT a group bound together by objectives that do not include rendering a precise translation based on all the best sources.
The C.E.B. meets its objectives. Unfortunately those objectives do not include publishing a Bible that is a faithful rendering of what was originally inspired by the Holy Spirit.
Bible Study FanAtlanta, GAAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Good Contemporary and Accurate TranslationMarch 28, 2014Bible Study FanAtlanta, GAAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I bought this Common English Bible for my son who is a college sophomore. He likes it and finds it very readable. I also gave one to my niece who is a recent college graduate and she has been pleased as well. This particular Bible is of a very high quality. The cover is very nice, the print readable and it has a good concordance.
I have given paper back Common English New Testaments both to my Bible Study Group and my Sunday School class. Both groups (which are mostly middle aged adults) have commented on insights that they received from this new translation. I would recommend this Bible especially for young adults who lean toward more contemporary language when reading the Scriptures. I am buying some more of this particular Bible to give to some young adults who are visiting me for Easter.

I realize everybody can't be pleased all the time, but I feel that during translation, the words of Jesus and God must be approached with great caution.
