Husband and Son enjoy this translation, which uses English tranliteration of Hebrew names and some other wording. I believe Sterns based upon an existing English version of the Bible. But maybe I am incorrect. There are interesting notes included. It is a helpful version. ONLY reason not 5-star of Acts Chapter Two is rather passionless - which seems very odd to me. Messianics kinda back off form Acts Chapter Two very often it seems. Totally subjective...no Bible Translator here. But it does 'feel' toned-down...sadly.
The site said this was a pre owned book. when I recevied it I was very happy to find that the book was in perfect condition, it must have only been read once. This book is basicly new I am very pleased with my item.

I purchased this translation of the Bible for myself as a personal study Bible, as I had heard that it was translated by a messianic Jewish believer with understanding of Jewish tradtion and from original Hebrew and Aramic text. I use it as a parallel study Bible, and really enjoy the fresh insight.

The Complete Jewish Bible is EXCELLENT! Our whole family is enjoying and reading this wonderful translation. As for the price: I have not found a better price anywhere else. We originally bought the paperback edition for our kids but, we have found the hardcover edition to be a much better value.
I fear Adonai, and I am a follower of Yeshua/Jesus. I have studied the Scriptures for years for years, and this translation is my absolute favorite. It is a true joy to study, and is (in my opinion) better than any other version available. My 2nd runner up is a the NIV Archaeology Study Bible from Zondervan, but even it does not compare to the correct, modern English translations of the original Masoretic & Greek texts within the CJB, nor does any other version seem to preserve (let alone explain) the rich culture and history of the Jews while also providing very coherent ties and unforced explanations of the Jewish Messiah as foretold for hundreds and thousands of years prior. - I think I have learned more from reading this wonderful work than any other of my Bibles combined, so I must highly and humbly recommend to you if you are passionate about better understanding of the Scriptures. - May G*D truly bless you and shalom, my friends.
Excellent reading material for the library. The price of this book from Overstock is fair and the shipping time was very quick comparing to other web businesses. I highly recomend Overstock to my friends for thier day to day purchases.
