This is a MUST HAVE...  Aug 27, 2007
For anyone who is seriously hungry for the Word of God, this is a must have! Seeing the differences between the translations is extremely helpful and brings new depth to study!
Well-organized and extremely valuable collection  Aug 23, 2007
I've found this Bible to be a valued resource in my devotionals and Bible studies. Recognizing that any English translation will not uphold the same standard of trustworthiness as the original languages, I find that for any given passage, some translations are true to the spirit of the word and some are out of place--but no translation seems to get it right (or wrong) every time. So, I decided that it would serve me well to have many translations to reference in my studies.
Now, I don't propose to "pick-and-choose" translations based on one's preferences--rather to compare phrasing, consistency with other explicit passages, and faithfulness to established Christian doctrine in order to have the truest picture painted. This is where the EEPB excels. I specifically bought this Bible to use in coordination with the Comparative Study Bible (KJV, AMP, NASB95, and NIV). The draw of the EEPB for me was the inclusion of the NKJV, ESV, and NLT. Each translation/transliteration has its own character and its own leanings. I, being devoted to reformed theology, certainly appreciate the literal translation style of the NKJV and ESV. But, I do also greatly appreciate the wording of many passages in the NLT, while overlooking the obviously Arminian slant of certain other texts. The biggest surprise I found was the Message paraphrase. I would be reluctant to endorse the public reading or devotional study of a contemporary-language paraphrase in itself, but as a parallel commentary to an actual translation, The Message may prove to be quite helpful. Most impressive was the introduction and purpose for the Message. It explains Eugene Peterson's desire to present the Word in a readable format--not replace accurate study Bibles. This is comforting considering that a paraphrase inherently carries with it the theological agenda of the author--thereby stunting the depth of insight a student might achieve in study. But, for the purpose of getting disinterested readers started in discovering the riches of God's word, The Message could prove to be a useful tool.
I love the format, it's easy to follow and moving from one version to another to read the same passage is very fluid. While I share in a common complaint about parallel Bibles--that the print is very small--I recognize the need for smaller print in order to make the size of the book manageable. Nevertheless, all things considered, this Bible is extremely useful and wonderfully-made.
I Love It!  Aug 2, 2007
I really love this bible! I'm able to look at the different versions, translations. To read the different wording, has given me a better understanding!!
I'm looking to purchase two more here in the near future. My girlfriends love it also! Thanks
Best Bible Ever!!  Mar 10, 2007
I really love this bible! It is so cool to be able to check a passage written in four translations, all on the same page!! I used to carry my traditional bible translation (NIV study) and The Message version around all the time to compare verses (I often find the Message speaks to me at a deeper level than other translations), and it was cumbersome. Now I just use this one bible most of the time, and use my old study bible occasionally. The book is well constructed, and the font size is not as small as I thought it would be. Parallel bibles are a great idea, and this is the best one I have found.
A really useful book  Jan 26, 2007
I appreciate the thoughness of having these parallel books together. It has complete texts, and thin paper. However, the thin paper makes reading difficult as the print from the opposite side shows through. It is a good reference, but not for lenghthy reading.
