We’re eagerly waiting for CEB Matthew to become available for download from the CEB website today:
If anyone has already found the download already available, please let us know. Since it will be available via a “splash page”, perhaps some of us will not see that page when we view the CEB site, due to popup blockers on our Internet browsers.
From the little I have seen of the CEB, it looks like it will be an above average English translation, with good quality English. It has the potential to take the place of the NRSV as a pulpit and pew Bible, especially if those churches which use the NRSV want a more readable Bible version.
