star a wondetful addition to my research collection

An amazing book there has not a day gone by that I have not used this book in one form or another. Beautifully done and put together. I have been involved with Dr. Wierwille's wonderful teaching ministry for over four decades and over the years within the teachings I have had Dr. Wierwille put together literal tradslations of the Word and to now of the church presented in this manner is wonderful. Now for those of you who may not have heard of a literal translation according to usage here is what it is. It is considering the greek and or aramaic also looking at customs of the Bible times adding in any figures of speach. Putting all these together you can build a deeper more exspansive translation of the verse to get more of the sense of the orignal Word as it was given to holy men of God as they spoke as God them the God breathed Word. Look at II Peter 1:21 and II Timothy 3:16

star WOW what a fantastic resource!

This book covering Romans through Philemon with the King James version on the left and a parallel of the literals and expanded by Dr. Wierwille and the research team is a great resource. It reminds be a little of the impact Dr. Bullinger's Companion Bible makes on a truth seeker. I recommend to anyone and everyone the spiritual benefits to using this book for daily Bible reading and more in depth biblical research. Amazing book!
