I’m happy to introduce you to 1 Thessalonians in the New Eclectic Version!

Incurable eschatologist that I am, I have always loved Paul’s letters to the Thessalonians. Written very early in the new Christian Era (around 50 AD), they serve as a window through which we may glimpse of a new-born Gentile church in all her glory.

Though not without her problems, she is full of love, joy, zeal, outreach, affliction, endurance, and–hovering over it all like the Spirit in the form of a dove–a lively expectation of the Lord’s soon return to rescue, judge, and eternally redeem!

Could we be entering such days? Could such an experience be ours? If so, you may want to read this letter, and (soon, I hope) its sequel.

May you be blessed as you do.

1 Thessalonians in the NEV

If Colossians was about the glory of Christ, Galatians is about the glory of the Gospel! Here it is, in the New Eclectic Version. d

Nothing quite like Colossians for savoring the glory of Christ! I hope you will receive a taste of it here, in the New Eclectic Version of that beautiful epistle.


Here is Hebrews in the New Eclectic Version.

And just in case you’re interested, yes, I really do think Paul wrote it!


I can’t promise that I won’t keep polishing, but here, in a format that I am pleased with, is the beloved Gospel of John in the New Eclectic Version.
