According to the American Bible Society, CEV Bible is considered as the kind of bible that exudes uncompromising simplicity. This is another bible version which was first published in 1995.
The truth is that this kind bible is easily read and understood by common readers, by children, and those people who prefer reading the contemporized version of the Holy Bible.
When we say here that the CEV is contemporized, this doesn’t necessarily mean that the texts in the bible are paraphrased. The truth is that t he CEV is endowed with accurate translations that were taken from the original manuscripts of the bible.
In case you don’t know, CEV Bible is the short name for Contemporary English Bible and also known as Bible for Today’s Family.
There were wrong insinuations back then that the CEV is a revision of the Good News Bible. However, the CEV authorities made it clear that this bible was published for the purpose of giving opportunity to low class readers to have a better understanding about the Good News Bible. As a matter of fact, the American Bible Society is working at its best to give better translation to both bible versions.
CEV has the following translation principles:*The texts are written to make the people read and understand without stumbling or struggling*The texts are translated in accordance with the level of comprehension of people who do not have much knowledge on biblical language*It should serve as a bible for all as it offer easy to understand texts and phrases
With the above-mentioned principles, the CEV has been renowned as the bible for the general public. This is especially true when you are a beginner in the field of learning the bible. CEV will work best for you.
With CEV Bible, every individual is given the opportunity to read and understand the words of God in their own way. And of course, with this bible, everyone is given the opportunity to keep hold of the words of God even when categorized as young or low level readers.
