Word Come Alive: an extended translation (paraphrase) of the New Testament that shows additional explanatory phrases in italics in the actual text: John 8:12 Jesus spoke once more to the people, 'The whole world is in darkness, but I give light to everyone. I am the light of the world. If you walk with me through life, trusting me and following my example, you won't stumble along in the gloom. No, I lift the darkness. My light will shine on you to guide you. I will light up your path and show you the right way to live. You will then be able to see the way ahead clearly and know where you're going.'

My reviewers are respected NT authorities: Dr Gervais Angel, formerly NT Greek Examiner for the Church of England and tutor in NT Greek, Trinity College, Bristol, England, and Dr Pieter Lalleman, Tutor of New Testament, Spurgeon's College, London, England.
