The primary goal of the Open English Translation is to make the Bible more accessible to this current generation with the best of a free-and-open, easy-to-understand Readers’ Version alongside a faithful Literal Version so that readers themselves can checkout what was said and what is interpreted.

The Open English Translation is a new series of Bible translation versions that will eventually be available in five versions: Literal Version, Readers’ Version, the Colloquial Version, the Study Version, and the Extended Version.

Work on the Open English Translation of the Bible is proceeding and the first rough draft of the New Testament is expected by the end of 2023 (and then hopefully released by the end of 2024).
