Enthusiastic Endorsements DR. V. RAYMOND EDMAN, president, Wheaton College, W h ea ton , Illinois: “ Translations in modem English, as the Berkeley Version, provide vivid­ ness and freshness of meaning to the text, and help throw light on the stately King James Version: Scholarly, thoughtful, incisive, the Berkeley Version makes a worthwhile contribution. . . . Sound evangelical scholar­ ship has produced in the BERKELEY BIBLE a very accurate, readable and devout translation of the Scriptures in 20th Century English —the Book of the ages in the language of today.” DR. H. J. OCKENGA, pastor of Park Street Church, Baston, Massachusetts says: “ . . . emphasizes chronology, clarity and contemporary Deity . . . a great help in Bible study. I highly recommend the Berkeley Version.” DR. JAMES H. HUNTER, editor, Evangelical Christian. “ Every Christian should possess a copy of this excellent translation in modem English that helps to elucidate more clearly the wonder of the Book. The approximate date of writing is given for each book, and the footnotes are most helpful.” DR. FRANK E.

This version is thoroughly modem, and free from archaisms . . . throwing a flood of light upon passages that are obscure in older translations.” The Christian Herald Magazine: of old words.” . . jolts the reader into a new understanding The Sunday School Times: . . will be found one of the best . ... very helpful for Bible study .: . faithfully abides by the evidence.” The Princeton Seminary Bulletin: “ . . . forthright and vigorous . . . characterized by sanctified common sense . . . conscientious and consecrated . . .” DR. MARK FAKKEMA, educational director of the National Association of Chris­ tian Schools: “ . . . most excellent. . .” Bibliotheca Sacra. •.readable and live.'* DR. H.
