Friendly Bible Translations by Joanne Spears

Passages from Genesis, Joana (Jonah), Luke, and John, with translations that are sensitive to accuracy in the use of gendered pronouns and are structured to comply with modern standards of simple sentence structure and syntax.

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.

They include topics such as “Why a Bible Translated for Children,” “The History of the Biblical Text,” “Problematic Bible Translation,” and “Poem: Gender and Biblical Language.”
