The Everyday Reading Bible - 2007

Title: Holy Bible ⚫ The Everyday Reading Bible ⚫ Easy–to-Read Version™ ERV

Date: 2007. ⓒ 2006 by World Bible Translation Center (for the Bible Text)
Publisher: Atlanta & Tyrone GA: (U.S.A.): Authentic Publishing
Fort Worth TX (U.S.A.): World Bible Translation Center, Inc. (for the Bible Text)
Contents: PB. Preface. Introduction (6 pp) Word List (14 pp). 6 b&w map drawings
References:
Images: Cover, Title
Location: Bibelarchiv-Birnbaum. Karlsruhe, Baden. Germany
Description: Hardback octavo, thread stitiching. XII & 1040 pp. Scripture text in double column, Cross references, brief explanations and alternate readings in the footnotes.
Comments: This "dynamic equivalence"- type translation is based on the Hebrew Masoretic Text found in the “Biblia Hebraica Stuttgartensia“ (1984) for the Old, and the 4° revised ed. of the UBS Greek New Testament (1993) and the NT Graece by Nestle/ Aland (27° 1993) for the New Testament. (The Apocrypha are not translated). In the Preface is said, that this ERV (not to be confused with the English Revised Version!) has been prepared especially for people who want an English translation that accurately expresses the full meaning of the original text in a style that is clear and easy to understand. It is especially helpful for those who have limited experience with English, including children and people who are just learning English.
The Book is well crafted with Bible paper, thickness only 2 cm (0.8 in) for the complete Scriptures (!); print is rather small, unfit for readers with bad eyes.
Unfortuantely no mention about the provenance of this ERV can be drawn from the preface. The reader might come to the conclusion that he purchased a new translation, undertaken in 2006. But the copyright dates lately from 1978 (not shown) and was renewed again in 1981 and 1982.
