The New Covenant

The New Covenant was produced by Robert LeRue Iddings in 2012. It was published through CreateSpace. This version contains the New Testament. There is no description on the Amazon page except that this is a "translation of the 27 books of the New Testament." The title page calls this a "A Paraphrased English Translation of THE NEW COVENANT." The introduction to the e-book edition states:

The Gospels of Mark and John and the Letter of Paul to the Romans are translated from the Greek Text of Nestle-Aland’s Novum Testamentum Graece. The rest of the books in the New Testament are translated from the third edition of Aland-Black-Martini-Metzger and Wirkgren’s book containing the Greek text and improved textual apparatus and entitled The Greek New Testament, published by the United Bible Societies in 1966. This translation has been checked against the Weymouth translation, Young’s translation, the New King James Version of the New Testament, The NIV, the Aramaic Bible and the Jerusalem Bible.  I have a great indebtedness to these various translations for they have often provided insight as to syntax and sense.
It is also available as a Kindle ebook.
