The Common English Bible New Testament

I am so pleased to be an author for one of the most respected publishers in CBA!  In addition to its awesome fiction line (that’s my home), Abingdon Press ( has just released The Common English Bible New Testament. The cool thing about this version is that it’s not a revision or an update of any existing translation.  It’s a bold new translation designed specifically for Christians who desire to dig deeper into the New Testament.  The Common English Bible New Testament is written at a level with which more than half of all English readers will feel comfortable.

Would you like to have a copy of this amazing New Testament?  I thought you would! So Debby Mayne and I have come up a great giveaway.  (Debby’s blog address: )

Here are the simple rules:

Post a comment on one (or both!) of our blog posts about this contest telling us your favorite scripture verse and why (in just a few sentences). At the end of NOVEMBER, we’ll each choose one winner at random. Each of our winners will win an autographed copy of our latest novels AND a copy of Abingdon’s Common English Bible New Testament!

Cool deal, huh? (For my book, winners can choose between my just released The Voyage of Promise, book 2 in the Grace in Africa trilogy, or The Call of Zulina, book 1.)

BONUS BONUS BONUS!  If you are a winner and you have posted a review of one of Debby’s or my novels on Christian Book Distributors , you will receive a second copy of this innovative Bible to give away.  ( What a perfect Christmas gift!)

It’s that simple.  So let us hear from you!  What’s your life verse of scripture, and why?

My favorite:

For I am convinced that neither death nor life, neither angels nor demons, neither the present nor the future, nor any powers, neither height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Romans 8: 38-39
