It was his work with the young people that first prompted him to translate the New Testament into the style of modern speech.

This is what the Lord of hosts says. For example, he uses the word "Christians" instead of "saints" throughout the version. Primarily, Acts of the Apostles can be used for Pauline interpretation as a theological basis.

Phillips' wife tells of his personal life, which included chronic problems with anxiety and depression.

Through Him we have confidently entered into this new relationship of grace, and here we take our stand, in happy certainty of the glorious things He has for us in the future.
