Item Description...

Translated directly from the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts, GOD’S WORD Translation (GW) uses a linguistic translation method similar to the one used by missionary translators throughout the world today. Unlike other Bibles, the translation theory used to produce GOD’S WORD is different because the theory and practice of translation has advanced through the years. As a result, it reads more easily, is more accurate, and communicates the intended meaning of the Bible more clearly and naturally than any other English translation.

In producing GOD’S WORD, the translators sought to find the closest natural equivalent to the original texts. The first consideration for the translators was to find equivalent English ways of expressing the meaning of the original text. This procedure ensured that the translation is faithful to the meaning intended by the original writer. Next, they considered readability. The translators expressed the meaning of the text in natural American English by using common English punctuation, capitalization, grammar, and word choice. Finally, they sought to use the natural equivalent that most closely reflects the style of the Hebrew, Aramaic, or Greek text. This translation theory is designed to avoid the awkwardness and inaccuracy associated with form-equivalent translation, and it avoids the loss of meaning and oversimplification associated with function equivalent translation.

Features include an index of The Teachings of Jesus, an Application Index, and a Dictionary/Concordance.

More About Baker Publishing Group

Baker Publishing Group Baker Publishing Group is an Evangelical Christian book publisher based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It has six main divisions: Bethany House, Revell, Baker Books, Baker Academic, Chosen and Brazos Press.

The company was founded in 1939, by Herman Baker. The company has published of Christian books that discuss many issues, from family life to theology, within a broadly evangelical framework. Baker publishes books and ministry resources for pastors and church leaders, concentrating on topics such as preaching, worship, pastoral ministries, counseling and leadership. Baker also publishes for lay Christians on topics such as discipleship, spirituality, encouragement, relationships, marriage, parenting and the intersection of Christianity and culture.

Bethany House - has been publishing high quality books for more than 50 years, and has over 1,100 titles spanning nearly every reading category. Recognized as the pioneer and leader in Christian fiction, we publish many of the top names in historical and contemporary romance, Amish and Mennonite fiction, romantic suspense, and many other fiction subgenres. Our nonfiction encompasses a variety of subjects, including Christian living, family resources, theology, heaven, and many more. Offering inspiration and encouragement to readers through story and spiritual insight, Bethany House titles frequently appear on Christian bestseller lists.

Revell - began over 125 years ago when D. L. Moody and his brother-in-law Fleming H. Revell saw the need for practical books that would help bring the Christian faith to everyday life. From there, Fleming H. Revell Publishing developed consistently solid lists that included many notable Christian writers over the years. This same vision for books that are both inspirational and practical continues to motivate the Revell publishing group today. Whether publishing fiction, Christian living, self-help, marriage, family, or youth books, each Revell publication reflects relevance, integrity, and excellence.

Baker Books - has a vision for building up the body of Christ through books that are relevant, intelligent, and engaging. We publish titles for lay Christians on topics such as discipleship, spirituality, encouragement, relationships, marriage, parenting, and the intersection of Christianity and culture. We also publish books and ministry resources for pastors and church leaders, concentrating on topics such as preaching, worship, pastoral ministries, counseling, and leadership.

Baker Academic - serves the academy and the church by publishing works that further the pursuit of knowledge and understanding within the context of Christian faith. Building on our Reformed and evangelical heritage, we connect authors and readers across the broader academic community by publishing books that reflect historic Christianity and its contemporary expressions. Our authors are scholars who are leaders in their fields, write irenically, and display a healthy respect for other perspectives and traditions. Our goal is to publish books that are notable for their inherent quality and deemed essential reading by students and scholars.

Ever since the 1971 publication of The Hiding Place by Corrie ten Boom, Chosen Books has been publishing powerful books that help millions to live the Spirit-filled life. Attracting evangelicals and charismatics, professionals and laypersons, books published by Chosen help believers to better know and love the Lord Jesus Christ, to pray about the concerns that are on God's heart, to be empowered by his Spirit for ministry, to fulfill the Great Commission, and to transform their communities and their world. Several hundred titles over more than thirty years, from Charles Colson's Born Again to Cindy Jacobs' Possessing the Gates of the Enemy, reflect the publishing goal of Chosen Books: to publish well-crafted books that recognize the gifts and ministry of the Holy Spirit and help readers live more empowered and effective lives for Jesus Christ. Challenged by the written word, these hungry readers are joining the incredible adventure of what God is doing in the world.

Brazos Press - fosters the renewal of classical, orthodox Christianity by publishing thoughtful, theologically grounded books on subjects of importance to the church and the world. We serve authors and readers from all major streams of the historic Christian tradition, recognizing that the renewal of Christian orthodoxy transcends many traditional boundary lines and polarities.

Since July of 1990, Baker Publishing Group has been proud to be the North American distributor for Cambridge University Press Bibles. We take great pride in offering the world's finest Bibles to its customers. Each Bible is treated with the same traditional care and devotion to craftsmanship as was Cambridge's first Bible in 1591. In an age of mass production and quick turnover, Baker believes that readers still want and appreciate the fine quality Bibles that Cambridge offers.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Great to have  Jul 6, 2009
This bible is great. Easy to read and understand. I referd it to a friend and she is going to buy it.
I think it would be great for kids too.
Very Good  Apr 8, 2009
Another great addition to the other Bibles available. I have 2 others and like to compare them. As for the navigation, I don't see the problem. The great thing about the Kindle is that you type what you are looking for in the search field and it will take you there. No need to keep hitting the page forward button. Not sure if some of you are aware of this feature. I typed in Psalms 21 and it took me right to it.
Extremely Poor Navigation  Apr 4, 2009
I will not review the content or translation of this Bible. To do so for me would be hubris. However, I will state that the navigation for this Bible is incredibly poor. This Bible will allow you to navigate to the first page of a book for example, but NOT to a chapter.

For example, should you want to read Psalms 121, you would be able to navigate to Psalms 1, but from there, you would need to keep pressing "next page" until you got to the 121st chapter- This is incredibly tedious and time consuming and a very poor method of navigating. Other Kindle version Bibles I own, such as Holy Bible, Today's New International Version, TNIV which is also free, Holy Bible, New Living Translation, or Holy Bible, New International Version, NIV, will take me to the first page of the Book I want, then provide links to the chapters, and some then provide a link to the specific verse- (I would STRONGLY recommend the others I mentioned).

Although I am in favor of Bible reading for reading's sake, I would venture to say that the majority who will use a Bible are using it to find a specific verse or chapter, to study or to follow in a sermon, or for general knowledge.

This Bible is totally inadequate for that purpose and therefore I rate this at the lowest possible rating allowed.
Poor Navigation ...  Apr 2, 2009
Though the translation might be OK, the navigation in this Kindle edition is very poor. From the TOC you can ONLY navigate to the beginning of the book (chapter 1) ... After that, you are on your own. There is no other chapter or verse navigation at all ... not good, and I do not recommend.
Awsome!  Feb 7, 2009
I've had many versions of the Bible and I have to say this is the one I will go to now. It is written in easy (current language) with out being so loose it's hippy sounding like "The Message." Wonderfully researched, sticking close to the greek and hebrew translations.
