Like many I grew up reading and learning the Bible, particularly the King James version. And although the lessons it contains became near and dear to me, as I grew older I realized living a Christian life was more complicated than necessary. I began to crave simplicity. After many years of deep contemplation, I produced the 21st Century Bible.

This was not something I took lightly by any measure. I’m not one to believe I have all the answers, but when the revelation that gave birth to the 21st Century Bible finally arrived it certainly simplified things for me. These two verses are meant to serve as reminders of what matters most. I can cite numerous biblical passages to support my point of view but that would likely accomplish just the opposite. So, I hope you will allow the 21st Century Bible to serve as a companion on your journey through life.
