    You may want to fix this post, the video is missing. Not sure but I hope this video (link to video) is what you wanted. Anyway the bible is available for free:
    Free online version

    This bible seems like a new version of the AMP. I like the idea of the AMP though the execution can be kind of weak. This seems to offer somewhat better execution.

    The video is displayed and works fine in both of the browsers I checked: Firefox 3.5 and IE8.

    What browser are you using, CD-Host? Maybe I can figure out a fix for your browser.

    Interesting it just disappeared again when I posted and the youtube link stopped working (on my post) for about 30 seconds. OK the problem is on the youtube side.

    I don’t think this should be compared to the Amped bible. The PDF looks like a usable, readable quick reference into the things I usually use a web resource to do. I’m impressed.

    Of course, it doesn’t bother to include the Majority Text rendering in any notes on the verse I checked, but that’s not a surprise. 🙂

    It is a modified version of the New Century Version, as they state in the introduction.

    Got my free copy in the mail the other day as one of the first 200 who posted about it on my blog and offered a review of sorts. It’s the hardback edition, too, despite the fact that the offer as stated was for a free paperback edition.

    It looks identical to the PDFs. I actually find that reading it in book form is not as cumbersome or laborious as I thought it would be from reading the PDFs. One can easily learn to stick with reading just the bold-faced type (i.e., the NCV text) while ignoring the inserted bracketed [ ]comments, only stopping to read them where one wants to. If one can trust the NCV translation as supplemented by the L (Literal) comments and alternate (or) translations to be faithful renderings of the Greek, I think this could be a useful study Bible (NT only so far) for those who do not know NT Greek. Assuming I don’t find any glaring problems, I’ll likely be recommending it to people. It should be in stores very soon so you can see it “in the flesh.”

    FYI, in response to my query/comment re: whether or not they would do a similar expanded translation of the Old Testament, Wayne Hastings of Thomas Nelson confirmed that the OT of The Expanded Bible should be published in about 2 years, so we’ll then have a complete Bible.

    I get the distinct impression that none of you are very impressed with this NT. I was hoping to find more comments.

    Why so down on the NCV?
