Paperback 8vo; XII and 420 pp; sewn binding. Printed in manuscript style. Translator wrote the 8 pp preface wherein he unfolds the development of his work. The principles of his translation are compared with NASB and NIV. Important Greek terms are closely examined. Scripture text is presented verse- wise. References to the OT, alternate readings and brief explanations in footnote.

Base Greek text is an (unspecified) critical one, the UBS or, Nestle Aland, as can be seen from the comments to e. g. Matth. 17:21: “Not in older manuscripts"; its translation is downgraded into the footnote. This also applies for the text of Romans 16:24, which is put in brackets with the same comment. John 7:53 to 8:11 is not bracketed but also has the "not in older mss" – comment. Interestingly there is not such a note on the longer ending of Mark (16:9-20), which is translated without being put in brackets.
