I would love to see a e-sword version of the NCV bible. It is a common language bible that is not overly simplified but does make communication of the Bible clearer to readers with a tough time reading the KJV. It is written on about an 8th or 9th grade reading level and is appropriate for most readers.

The "reading level" is discussable because it is based on algorithms as syllable count, vowels and word count in a sentence. (Not layout, vocabulary and other punctuations).

The reason for the harder reading in the KJV is rather archaic language, the accuracy of the synonyms and less freedom of paraphrasing.

 

Anyway, the NCV is copyrighted by the same people behind the  NKJV.  And they are strict in their copyright position.

TY for letting me know... I was just saying that I would love to see a module for this. I did not know that the same people held the copyright... that stinks...
