New Chinese Bible Translation for theWord


Just found that Costa managed to include two new Chinese Translations. They are CNV (Chinese New Version, 新譯本聖經) and CNET (Chinese NET, NET聖經中譯本/新英語譯本聖經). Both Traditional Chinese version and Simplified Chinese version are provided. Like NET, free version comes with limited notes and full version includes all notes. Both premium bibles only cost US$4.95 each. Also worth to point out that CNET is not yet available for other bible study program and exclusively from theWord for the moment.
