New Millennium Bible

The full title of this work is New Millennium Bible, A Visionary and Holistic Translation of the Ancient Hebrew Scriptures for the 21st Century. It is translated by Rabbi Gershon Winkler and illustrated by Carol Shireena Sakai. There is more information about it on Sakai's web site.

Scripture Sample: "And the Contrary was the most uninhibited of all the creatures of the field that Infinite One, Source of All Powers, had made. And it spoke to Fire Being and said: “Did the Source of All Powers instruct you to not eat from any of the trees in the garden?” And the Fire Being replied to the Contrary: “No, for we are permitted to eat from the fruit of trees in the garden. Only from the fruit of the tree that stands in the middle of the garden did the Source of all Powers instruct us not to eat and not to touch, or else we might die." And the Contrary said to the Fire Being: “You will not die. Rather the Source of All Powers knows well that on the day that you eat from this tree your perception will become opened and so broadened that you will become like the Source of All Powers in that you will possess the secret knowledge of Good and Bad” (Genesis 3:1-5)"
