Is anyone familiar with the English Version For The Deaf ? It is also known as the Easy-To-Read Version . I was introduced to this version last night for the first time . I would like to take some time and go through it a great deal . I just scanned several verses . I'm on a ministry team which goes to a Psych-ward on Sundays . Some of the patients are intelligent , but many are not in a lucid state of mind . Others are mentally challenged . Still others know English haltingly as a second language . A young woman on the team showed me this new Bible . She wants to give away a bunch of copies with the permission of the Church . So far the messages have been with the NASBU version . It takes time away from the message to explain some of the more difficult words in that particular version . If the patients had access to an accurate , but simplified Bible , they would be learning some needed saving truths .
