    Exclamation Common English Bible

    The Common English Bible

    Now the liberal mainliners want a dynamic equivalent Bible; I guess the NRSV was too hard to read? Seems to me to have the theology of the National Council of Churches and the vocabulary of the NIV. Any thoughts?

    (The part that jumps out at me is calling Jesus the "Human One" rather than the "Son of Man.)

    There is another relatively recent NT translation called "The Source" which I suspect is similar to the CEB.

About us
The PuritanBoard exists to promote robust discussion of theology in a Confessionally Reformed context. The modern trend of short statements of faith belies the many places where the Scriptures teach with great clarity. Though our respective Reformed confessions sometimes disagree, we believe that Churches have been given the gifts of teachers and elders to lead to the unity of the faith and the result of that unity is a Confessional Church confessing together: "This is what the Scriptures teach." The Confessions are secondary to the authority of Scripture itself but they arise out of Scripture as a standard exposition of the Word of God.
