GOOD NEWS IS FOR SHARING!

Welcome to the home of the Good News Bible, where you’ll find the latest on the UK’s best-loved Bible translation.

The Good News Bible was the world’s first truly “easy-to-read” Bible translation. In its first edition, published under the title Good News for Modern Man, it was a bestseller, and today is still the UK’s most popular Bible translation.

The GNB aims to give today’s readers maximum understanding of the content of the original Hebrew and Greek texts. It does not follow the traditional vocabulary and style found in historic English Bible versions; instead, it attempts to present the biblical content and message in standard, everyday, natural English – and it’s regularly updated to make sure it reflects contemporary English usage.
