The new Catholic translation of the popular Protestant Bible puts Scripture into context that anyone can understand.
On Sept. 15, 1966, the American Bible Society scored some points for clarity. The society published a modern speech Bible translation with the gender-exclusive title Good News for Modern Man: The New Testament in Today's English Version. Just a year later, a second edition with various improvements was published, and that version now is on the list of Bible translations that the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops has approved for American Catholics.
