I first owned this easy-to-read translation years ago, but it got lost many moves ago. This is not a paraphrase, incidentally. I find this translation very helpful for difficult passages and am glad to add it to my collection of study and other Bible translations.
Amazon's description is inanaccurate, however. If you need the Deuterocanonicals/Apocrypha, this version in burgundy does not contain it. There are two versions sold by Amazon -- one with a blue cover and one with a burgundy cover. Both are marked as containing the Apocrypha. I bought the one that cost a little more assuming that it did contain the apocrypha, but it did not. I don't know if the blue cover version does contain them, but since it is less expensive I doubt it. I brought the mislabeling to Amazon's attention so I hope they correct the problem.
With or without the Apocrypha, I highly recommend this as an addition to anyone's Bible library.
