The Arian Christian Bible

I am not sure yet what to think about the The Arian Christian Bible. You can preview it on Amazon or on Google Books. It is translated by the Institute for Metaphysical Studies. Charles D. Levy is listed as the director but there is no mention of who actually translated this version.

The book of Matthew eliminates the genealogies in the beginning. The book of John is excluded completely. The preface states that the book of John is "a stone among diamonds."  The IMS website states:

The 'Arian Christian Bible' reflects the beliefs of Arian Christians, which should not be confused with 'Aryan' race based doctrines. Arian Christians believe that Jesus' highest teachings are reflected in his words, according to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark and Luke and the rejection of the politically imposed divinity of Jesus inspired by the Council of Nicaea which was convened by the Roman church and Emperor Constantine I, in 325 AD.

Please post comments if you get a chance to read through any of this version.
