Hi Sam! I'm wondering if you could recommend a good Bible translation that I could give to a new couple in our church who are in ESL classes. Their English is improving exponentially (!) and I'd love to give them an easy-to-read Bible translation (that isn't a children's Bible). Thanks


Hi Michelle, great question. We have been using the NIRV with Basic English studies. Here's some exciting news --We are working on translating a set of DYB studies into Basic English. The Basic English adaptation of Discover Ruth and Discover Jonah will be ready very soon. We are doing this work so that its easier to translate the studies into different languages.  So, you will be able to purchase a Discover Your Bible study in English, Basic English, Spanish, Korean and other languages!!
