Friendly Bible Translations by Joanne Spears

Backgrounds on Friendly Bible Translations by Joanne Spears

Commentaries meant to aid reading and discussion by emphasizing the significant, distinguishing elements of these translations.  Particularly helpful for First Day School children, as well as for adult study and discussion.
