Third Thursday of Advent Verses from the Common English Bible – Galatians 4:4-5 + Bible Giveaway!!

Buzz this

It’s Thursday, two weeks before Christmas, and here are today’s Advent Bible verses from the new Common English Bible translation as I participate in the “Thank You – Come Again – I Promise” blog tour.

Thursday – Galatians 4:4-5 (CEB)

v But when the fulfillment of the time came, God sent his Son, born through a woman and born under the Law. This was so he could redeem those under the law so we could be adopted.

Please take a peek at the ‘Why’ behind the Common English Bible:

The Common English Bible is a non-polarizing Bible translation. It’s the result of collaboration between opposites: men working with women; scholars working with average readers; conservatives working with liberals, many denominations and many ethnicities coming together around the common goal of creating a translation that unites rather than divides, with the ultimate goal of mutually accomplishing God’s overall work in the world.

The Common English Bible is also needed today because the digital revolution is accelerating changes in the English language and its everyday usage and understandability. This translation is necessary to clearly communicate God’s Word because 9,000 new words & meaning revisions are added yearly to the English lexicon. The Common English Bible is today’s freshest translation and uses natural, 21st century English.

The Common English Bible has uncommon readability and relevance for a broad audience of Bible readers – from children to scholars.

As part of this blog tour, I’ve been given the opportunity by the Common English Bible Committee to offer my readers a free copy of the softcover edition of the Common English Bible for each week of the blog tour (which runs through January 31, 2012)!

For this week, please leave a message on Sunday’s blog post here telling me the name of the Bible translation that you use on a regular basis. Please leave your email address also, so I can contact you to get your mailing address.

The deadline to enter for this week will be Saturday, December 17, 2011 at 11:59 pm ET. The winner will be chosen from all entries by the Random Number Generator on Sunday, December 18, 2011. Please limit one entry per person. All the best to you!
