The Contemporary English Version (CEV), also known as Bible for Today's Family,is a translation of the Bible into English, published by the American Bible Society.
It is sometimes misundertood as a revision of the Good News Bible yet it is a fresh translation, and designed for a lower reading level than the GNB.
The translators of the CEV followed three principles. They wanted the CEV to
"be understood by people without stumbling in speech", "be understood by those with little or no comprehension of 'Bible' language" and "be understood by all".
