GNB Good News Bible

The Good News Bible (GNB) has become established as the UK's most popular Bible because it uses plain, everyday language to give readers of all ages the clearest understanding of the Bible. With an emphasis on the meaning of the text it is particularly popular with schools, Sunday Schools, young people, and people with English as a second language. It is a favourite all over the English speaking world, and among all ages, making it perfect for all-age services.

Parts of the New Testament were used in the Billy Graham crusades, as well as other evangelistic campaigns, thanks to the GNB's emphasis on meaning which makes it a favourite for those involved with evangelism.

Through the plain language, the Bible's message is made easily accessible to everyone, and according to recent research it is the preferred translation of those who do not read the Bible. Most editions include the iconic line drawings by Swiss artist Annie Vallatton.

The New Testament was first published as ‘Good News for Modern Man’ by the American Bible Society in 1966, and then the whole Bible was printed as Today's English Version (TEV) in 1976. In the USA it is now called the Good News Translation (GNT).

The GNB comes in many editions published by Bible Society and HarperCollins, including most recently a Sports Edition in the year of the 2012 Olympics. It was anglicised for the British market by the British and Foreign Bible Society.

Sample verse

Rich people who see a brother or sister in need, yet close their hearts against them, cannot claim that they love God. (1 John 3.17)
