It's a must read, a befitting guide and manual for all age groups for; Bible study, meditation, devotion, worship, teaching, instruction and scholarship. Jesus Christ is the epicenter of the entire text. Believers will not miss the centrality of the translation as there is a finite and delicate thread directing to the revealing and redeeming Christ. Unbelievers will derive unrivaled comfort from the text as they get captivated by the reality and close proximity of Christ. This is definitely a life giving and transforming translation. I am humbly convinced that Francois is chosen by God to serve this generation and the next with undiluted truth in the midst of incomprehensible compromises of worldly, heretical and traditional doctrinal interpretations and practices (religion) that have diverted us from the truth. The Mirror Bible is a welcome revelatory and revolutionary development that is divinely sanctioned, inspired and directed. This translation is by no doubt a compelling grounding expository of our century. To God be the Glory. Rev.
