I received word of a new Bible project that is underway. It is the Open English Bible. This is a revision of the Twentieth Century New Testament. This will be "under a licence enabling the maximum reuse, remixing and sharing without requiring the payment of royalties or the obtaining of permission from copyright holders" and
"a translation reflecting modern English usage and Biblical scholarship." For more information and a download of the book of Mark visit OpenEnglishBible.org.
