While this new Bible is certainly an inclusive-language translation, it is much more: it is a re-imagining of the scriptures and our relationship to them. Not merely replacing male pronouns, the translators have rethought what kind of language has built barriers between the text and its readers. Seeking to be faithful to the original languages, they have sought new and non-sexist ways to express the same ancient truths. The Inclusive Bible is a fresh, dynamic translation into modern English, carefully crafted to let the power and poetry of the language shine forth particularly when read aloud giving it an immediacy and intimacy rarely found in traditional translations of the Bible. The Inclusive Bible contains both the Old and the New Testaments."

An Unbiblical Bible

Granted, some people have trouble with the use of “man” and male pronouns in the Bible, in cases where those words clearly apply to both men and women. Personally I don’t find the usages offensive ... Read full review

I can't even begin to describe the sheer disdain I have for this piece of disrespectful, tainted, asinine filth. It is a sophomoric attempt at hiding the Truth of Scripture. This book is NOT the Bible! Do NOT purchase this book. It is NOT a translation of the Holy Scriptures. It is simply an evil attempt at justifying sin. God is not mocked and I pray for the souls of those who crafted this vile thing.
Yes. I am serious. This book is complete heresy.
