Dr. Barclay M. Newman was Chair and Chief Translator of the "Contemporary English Version (CEV)" of the Bible, first published in 1995 by the American Bible Society, then in 2006 by G.P. Putnam's Sons (Penguin Books) as "Seek Find: The Bible for All People." He was a member of the Old Testament Committee for the Good News Bible (Today's English Version) published in 1976 by the American Bible Society (ABS), and he chaired the revision that was published by the ABS in 1992 as the Good News Translation.
"The first edition (1971) of this concise Greek-English
dictionary of the NT was described in NTA 16, p. 234. In the main
part the new edition of the Greek-English lexicon features reviewed
and revised definitions of each word, a more systematic approach to
cross-referencing, indications of words used only once in the Greek
NT, the use of small upright lines to signal compound words, and
the inclusion of Greek words not found in the NT in conjunction
with the definition of an entry. Also included are maps and a
fourteen-page appendix that provides a sampling of some Greek NT
words that share similar meanings."
