National Bible Week and the Common English Bible

This is National Bible Week. It comes and goes with little fanfare, in part because there is another holiday that happens Thursday of this week that ends up stealing a lot of the glory away from this week of celebration and remembrance.

This week, to remember the National Bible Week, we are spending most of our time focusing in on the Common English Bible, and what its recent release means to Bible lovers everywhere.

I have several friends that complain, "Why do we need another Bible translation?" Certainly I understand where they are coming from. But, because language, culture and people are constantly changing, sometimes it helps to have folks to come around every now and then.

Below is a video telling the Common English Bible's story. I hope as you watch this little slideshow you will get a feel about why this new translation is such a joy and an asset to Bible lovers everywhere.
