What is the Common English Bible (CEB) translation?

The Common English Bible (CEB) was made to balance the dynamic equivalence and formal equivalence (word-for-word translation) translation styles. The goal for the translation was to make the Bible accessible to all English readers.

120 translators were assigned portions of scripture who handed off to a co-translator for review. Modification by 77 different reading groups followed. These groups from over a dozen denominations helped review the text. The goal was to provide a reading experience that would help enhance church worship and participation.

Sponsored by an alliance of several denomination publishers, this translation was started in 2008 and completed in 2011. It also includes the apocryphal/deuterocanonical books.

Should I use the CEB translation?

While some denominations have replaced the NIV with the Common English Bible as one of the approved bible translations in seminary or church services, it is not one of the top 10 best selling Bibles.

Have you accepted the grace of God?

If you have not accepted the grace of God and chosen to believe in Jesus Christ as your Lord and Savior, I encourage you to pray to God now and invite Him in, accept Jesus as the sacrifice for your sins, and repent of your sins. Submit it all to God, lay it at His feet, seek the forgiveness of God, welcome Him into your life, and believe that Jesus died and rose again to save you from your sins.
