Publisher's Summary

Listening to the Bible will change the way you understand scripture. The stories and poems and instructions comes in through the ears and consume your whole being as God's word becomes part of a living experience. The Common English Bible is not simply a revision or update of an existing translation. It is a bold new translation designed to meet the needs of Christians as they work to build a strong and meaningful relationship with God through Jesus Christ.
Who is it for?
The Common English Bible is committed to the whole church of Jesus Christ. To achieve this, the CEB represents the work of a diverse team with broad scholarship, including the work of over 120 scholars - men and women from 24 faith traditions in American, African, Asian, European, and Latino communities. As a result, the English translation of ancient words has an uncommon relevance for a broad audience of Bible readers - from children to scholars.

Incredible Performance...layout for listening flaw

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Very good bible with solid performances. The only drawback for this is the lack of accessibility to go from one book of the bible to another. It is broken into several downloads but it is only listed Chapter 1, 2 , 3 and so on....no book titles within the collection. ie. I am doing a study on Amos...There is no way to get there except for an exhausting trial and error search (unless you know how many chapters are in each book of the bible off the top of your head.) I hope they get this updated and fixed because this truly is an excellent translation that should be easily available for everyone.

Not easy to navigate

Any additional comments?

It's fine if you want to listen to the Bible straight through in order. If you want to listen to certain books or chapters, they're difficult to find. Sections of the download include more than one book and chapters of books are not distinguished. It's a great version and I certainly recommend the Common English Bible in print. The audiobook has been less helpful to me.

It's Gospel

Would you listen to CEB Common English Audio Edition again? Why?

I do listen repeatedly; I especially enjoy the renditions of the Psalms. The overall quality is really quite remarkable and the translation has generally succeeded at capturing the vivid earthiness and immediacy that is such a literary quality of the bible.

What was one of the most memorable moments of CEB Common English Audio Edition?

Definitely Psalm 69 and the Sermon on the Mount.

What does uncredited bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

To hear the bible spoken is to grasp the political nature of the text, particularly the Gospels where the Lord's speeches so clearly serve to call people to his new reality. Excellent.
