The portability of a small Bible meets the readability of a single-column setting in this new Common English Bible.Fitting well into a purse, messenger bag, or tote, this new Compact Thin is easy-to-hold and features a mossy green DecoTone cover with a burnished cross and scroll work. Most importantly, readability was not sacrificed; the single-column setting makes the reading experience novel-like, which matches well the CEB's tone and vocabulary. The type size of the Compact Thin line was increased by a point to add to the ease of reading.



"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."
— Frank Ramirez, Pastor, Everett Church of the Brethren, Everett, Pennsylvania

About the Author

Common English Bible

The Common English Bible is a translation completed in 2011. One hundred and twenty biblical scholars from twenty-two faith traditions worked as translators. These women and men balanced rigorous accuracy in translation of the ancient texts with an equally passionate commitment to clarity of expression in contemporary English. The result is a clear, direct, and powerful English version of the scriptures for use in Bible study, devotional reading, and worship.
