The New Century Version (NCV) puts biblical concepts into natural and easy-to-understand English terms. The vocabulary used is based on The Living Word Vocabulary, by Dr. Edgar Dale and Dr. Joseph O'Rourke. The New Century Version aims to make the Bible easier to comprehend, so that even those who who own multiple Bibles can relax and allow God's message to clearly, accurately, and eternally reach their hearts, and read the Bible for the sheer enjoyment.
