"I have been, for over forty years, a great collector of different translations. I find the Common English Bible stands apart ... the CEB has become my Bible of choice. I carry it with me to hospitals and on visits. I use it for personal study. I quote it in my writings. I have recommended it in my local ministerial association. Most of all, I simply enjoy reading it. I find, as I read a biblical book, that I have the same sensation as any other work, fiction or non-fiction, that I read for enjoyment: I can’t put it down. That, to me, is probably the most important thing of all."
