The Bible for Everyone is the result of a passionate conviction that scripture should be something that everyone can read, understand and enjoy. Two world-renowned biblical scholars and communicators have therefore undertaken a tremendous task: to draw together, revise and supplement the translations that appear in their popular For Everyone commentaries, making a rounded, readable and reliable version of the Bible that will prove helpful to people of all religious backgrounds at every stage of their lives.

Broken up into easy-to-read, bite-sized chunks, and including helpful introductions to each biblical book, informative maps and a substantial glossary of key words, here is a new rendering of ancient wisdom that can be read like a novel, studied in sections or used as an aid to daily devotion.

Most Highlighted Verses in The Bible for Everyone: A New Translation

Genesis 14:22: But Abram said to the king of Sedom, ‘I raise my hand to Yahweh, God On High, Lord of the heavens and the earth:

Exodus 32:10: So now, let me be, so my anger may rage against them and I may finish them off, and make you into a big nation.’

Romans 1:18: For the anger of God is unveiled from heaven against all the ungodliness and injustice performed by people who use injustice to suppress the truth.

Romans 8:37–39: No: in all these things we are completely victorious through the one who loved us. I am persuaded, you see, that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor the present, nor the future, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature will be able to separate us from the love of God in King Jesus our Lord.

1 Corinthians 4:20: The kingdom of God, you see, isn’t about talk—it’s about power.

2 Corinthians 3:14–18: The difference is that their minds were hardened. You see, the same veil lies over the reading of the old covenant right up to this very day. It isn’t taken away, because it’s in the Messiah that it is abolished. Yes, even to this day, whenever Moses is read, the veil lies upon their hearts; but ‘whenever he turns back to the Lord, the veil is removed’.

2 Corinthians 7:10: because God’s way of sadness is designed to produce a repentance which leads to salvation, and there’s nothing to regret there! But the world’s way of sadness produces death.

Galatians 2:16: But we know that a person is not declared ‘righteous’ by works of the Jewish law, but through the faithfulness of Jesus the Messiah. That is why we too believed in the Messiah, Jesus: so that we might be declared ‘righteous’ on the basis of the Messiah’s faithfulness, and not on the basis of works of the Jewish law. On that basis, you see, no creature will be declared ‘righteous’.

Ephesians 3:10: This is it: that God’s wisdom, in all its rich variety, was to be made known to the rulers and authorities in the heavenly places—through the church!

James 2:8: Supposing, however, you keep the royal law, as it is written, ‘You shall love your neighbour as yourself’; if you do this, you will do well.

While new translations of the Bible are constantly appearing, with the vast majority only offering slight variations, Goldingay’s translation here offers a fresh alternative, providing a rare glimpse into the language, culture, and worldview of ancient Israel. . . Everyone will love this.

David T. Lamb, Professor of Old Testament, Biblical Theological Seminary, Pennsylvania

John Goldingay’s translation is a magisterial work of theology, pastoral insight, and linguistic scholarship. . . It has immediately become one of the standard translations that I always consult when trying to understand any Old Testament text myself.

Gordon McConville, Professor of Old Testament Theology, University of Gloucestershire

We hear the familiar flow of passages we know well, but with unexpected and arresting words that make us sometimes pause and think again. This is a book to browse in, alongside your customary Bible version, for fresh insights, challenge and enjoyment.

Christopher J. H. Wright, International Ministries Director, Langham Partnership

This is a remarkable achievement. . . Tom Wright has a very attractive feel for English; and the mere fact of producing a fresh translation that is both scholarly and written in non-repellent language makes this work a major triumph.’

    In reading the first sample page I see that the authors do not read the text as written, but as they understand it. That is, not necessarily a literal reading but attaching an overall spiritual/ allegorical understanding to the stories found in Genesis. This is not how I understood these Bible stories as a child. It made more sense to me to understand them as literal accounts of God's Word and thus I was able to get a picture of who God is and a literal account of the origin of this world and the history of mankind. This is just an observation as I'm not a theologian or a Bible expert and thought I'd give an FYI to those interested in this volume but who don't hold to this way of reading the Bible.
