I read this in 8th or 9th grade, a little at a time each night at bedtime -- when I was in a nondenominational charismatic Christian group and also in the throes of adolescence, just becoming aware of the world and figuring out how I would relate to it.

I'm giving this book 5 stars because it was a huge part of my life. And I do think the modern language was good for me at that age. My copy of it is full of highlighting, underlining, and comments.

I hope my mom still has it, because I would like to read it again.

The first Bible I read in a year. I liked it then, but during a Bible study I realized there were much better translations for studying.
