Old Testament Books
Read the Bible fresh off the hard drive
A work in progress
The Casual English Bible is a work in progress.
As early-draft Bible chapters are paraphrased, they are posted fresh off the hard drive. They’re not proofed or edited at that time. That work is currently underway, starting with Matthew in the New Testament and working toward Revelation. Then we’ll double back and begin editing Old Testament Books.
We generally begin creating maps for the books after we’ve finished the paraphrasing. That way, we can tell from the text and the accompanying footnotes what place names we need to get onto maps.
Sometimes, however, we get so excited about the idea for a new map that we jump right into it before the Bible book paraphrase is finished. Getting excited about Bible maps says something about us, I guess. We hope it’s good.
If you’d like to help us finish the mission, there are buttons for that below: Patreon and Donate.

Folks who don’t read the Bible need a Bible they can read
The Casual English Bible® (TCEB) is an easy-reading paraphrase of the Bible. It’s written especially for people who don’t read the Bible.
“Folks who don’t read the Bible need a Bible they can read” isn’t just a cute tag line. It guides the translation away from churchy and scholarly words that are endearing to longtime Christians but make no sense to Bible newcomers.
TCEB gives people who are curious about Christianity a Bible they can understand the first time they lay eyes on it.
