I ordered this book, and it was in great condition, better than was expected. I bought this to get a different perspective on the New Testament. It was a rather simplistic translation, but did help to connect the Old and New Testament of the Bible. I am a Catholic, so I prefer the Douay Rheims Bible, but I am always looking for fresh way to see the holy Scripture and this fit the bill nicely. I use other translations during my regular Bible study, but use this as a reference so when I read the New Testament I will go in and read this as well. My friend and I bought this at the same time, she is reading the Jewish New Testament along with the Commentary written for it, so there are many ways to utilize this version.
