Free book (nook, Kindle) - Common English Bible: New Testament [Religious]
Well, B&N giveth with one hand, and taketh away with another.
The paranormal vampire Christmas freebie disappeared pretty quickly, but another vaguely related freebie has taken its place:
Common English Bible: New Testament, courtesy of the Common English Bible people, whomever they may be. This is available both at B&N and also Amazon. It's got a little subtitle on the cover saying "Explore the New Translation", so religious Christian types and interested secular/non-Christian people who already have a bible they're pretty happy with may want to get this out of curiosity.
Take a fresh look at the Bible while you experience a new translation. The Common English Bible is relevant, readable, and reliable. The result is a new version that the typical reader or worshipper is able to understand.
-115 leading biblical scholars from 22 faith traditions
- Field tested by 77 reading specialists in 13 denominations
- 90-day reading plan
- Single column format
- Color maps by National Geographic
Feel free to contrast and compare with the Holman Christian Standard Bible, from the Holman Bible people, whomever they may be; still also free in many stores.
