Excellent translation (3/13/2024)
Reviewed by (Paula Buermele, Adrian, MI, US) - I highly recommend the Evangelical Heritage Version of the Bible. I am familiar with the work that was done to create this translation from the original languages and have full confidence that the words, interpretations, and footnotes were meticulously researched and discussed among the experts on the translation teams. Attention to format, readability, and accuracy was always before the work of the teams working on this version. An incredible amount of work and prayer was invested to deliver a very reliable translation of the Scriptures inspired by God.

Reviewed by (Doran Fischer, WATERTOWN, WI, United States) - The EHV was a translation project of the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod (WELS). The general feelings about the NIV were waning due to later versions which adopted political rationales for emending the original edition. As WELS sent part of the scholars in this translation project, they exercised the same high quality of grammatical faithfulness while remaining true to the Koine Greek of the New Testament and the Hebrew and Aramaic portions of the Old. The result is a priceless translation that the WELS now sponsors in its liturgical worship. Other denominations will note that this is not a Lutheran translation, but an extremely faiothful presentation of Scriptures.

A Good Backup to my Favorite. (1/3/2022)
Reviewed by (Louis Adendorff, Williamsburg, VA, United States) - I enjoy reading the scriptures from different points of view. I use this version (which is excellent) as a supplement to other versions such as the Amplified Version. The purpose is to provide a more complete picture of what the Lord may be trying to say to me through these scriptures. The Evangelical Heritage Version does this very well.

Review (1/3/2022)
Reviewed by (Elton Nelson, Turlock, CA, United States) - It downloaded fine. But I did not find the notes making reference to the Old Testament in the New Testament or other notes. It does look like a good translation.

It's a good read. (1/3/2022)
Reviewed by (David Roupe, Lexington, South Carolina, US) - I am always looking for an easy to read version of the scriptures that is true to the text. While still early, I have found the EHV to be a very readable translation while maintaining the integrity of the original language.

Reviewed by (Herbert Edgerton, Tazewell, VA, United States) - My main two versions I use are the ESV and NKJV. I use other translations as a sort of commentary on the two above translations. I do like this new version as it is easy to read and understand. I have used this new translation in posting Scripture on FB in some messages I have posted there.

Very Easy to Read (1/3/2022)
Reviewed by (Marcia McCance, Stanley, NC, US) - I must preface my review with the fact that I love to read the KJV... so this one seemed, at first, as if I was reading a first grade reading book. Since that was my first impression, I simply set it aside after reading the verses that I use to test every Bible I check out (John 1:1-5). Sometimes reading in modern English seems to me to, somehow, make the content "trivial." It looses its majesty. But when I got the request to do this review in my e-mail, I took it out again and read through it. This time it simply seemed to be a very plain and easy to understand version of what I like to read. It no longer seemed trivial to me, but only seemed "simple," which means very easy to read. Now, I have not read much in it, but it seems to me that any person who is troubled by the KJV, or some other versions will find this one to be simple and straight forward. So I say -- thank you for all those whose hearts will be touched with the power of the Word of God by it.

Doesn't Pander to Feminism (1/3/2022)
Reviewed by (Lee Gordon, Des Moines, Iowa, US) - It's so nice to read a modern translation that doesn't cower or pander to egalitarian or feminist views. That alone makes it worth it to me.

Above all, readable (1/3/2022)
Reviewed by (Patricio Kelly, CABA, Province, Argentina) - One thing is outstanding in this version: it draws you to continue reading it. It is so friendly, that you don't want to stop reading it. It all sounds familiar, trustable, and filled with love. It is a real joy to read it.
