9780737501629: NET Bible First Edition (Hardback)

The NET Bible is the first Bible in history with extensive Translators' Notes; we considered what kind of edition would be appropriate for those who want to use and perhaps keep it as an important collector's edition for their library at a price which allows pastors, teachers, and students to afford a Bible which won't fall apart with extensive use. Those who have only used the NET Bible online will be amazed at how much of each of the 2560 pages consist of the extensive Translators' Notes.

"There are many wonderful things I could say about the NET Bible, but the most important is this: the NET Bible is a Bible you can trust. The translation is clear, accurate, and powerful. And the notes, those wonderful notes! They bring to the layman scholarly insights and discussions that have up till now been accessible only to those trained in the biblical languages. If you are serious about studying Scripture, get a copy of the NET Bible." --Chuck Swindoll

The fact that the NET Bible (NT) explains itself with a wealth of detailed notes discussing matters of accuracy allows the translators to focus more on readability and eloquence in the translation without inadvertently misleading the reader about the original text. Other translations wrestle with the tension between accuracy, readability, and eloquence in the translation alone, but the NET Bible's notes have given the translators a legitimate shot at consistently balancing all three objectives. Detailed notes also ensure that every English reader can profit from reading the NET Bible (NT), regardless of the version he or she presently prefers. The NET Bible (NT) helps the reader understand why other translations read the way they do. --J. Ed Komoszewski Christian Research Journal

One of the newest translations of the New Testament, a very ambitious work by twenty anonymous scholars, is called the NET Bible: New English Translation, (1998). It is not to be confused with the New Evangelical Translation, (NET, 1992), or the New English Bible (NEB, 1970). It is now also available in book form. The NET Bible is a translation that explains itself, it has an astounding 16,025 footnotes, consisting of textual critical, translator s, and study notes! A 10-page Detailed Table of Contents adds to the usefulness of this unique translation. --William E. Paul Editor, Bible Collectors World
