"This is The Great Book because it is the book sent to us by God to tell us about Himself and His only Son, Jesus.

It is God's love letter to the human race. We translated every word from the original Greek text into plain English. It is a real translation, but so easy to understand. This is just what you need to find out everything you ever wanted to know about God.

All the words in The Great Book point to the Living Word, Jesus Christ. A you read each page, you will discover the wonders of His love and all about the dream He has dreamed for your life."

A BRIEF HISTORY ABOUT THE TRANSLATORS

It has been established since 1975 and is comprised of a small body of scholars who specialize in theoretical linguistics, cultural anthropology, biblical Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek, lexicography, computer programming, exotic typography, and field testing (psycholinguistics).

The Chairman of the Translation Committee of The Plain English Bible is Dr. Stanley L. Morris. He served as an editor in the Translation Department of the American Bible Society from 1968 to 1972 under the world- famous linguist, Dr. Eugene A. Nida.
