Does not claim to be a translation based on actual documents, but rather claims to be inspired changes designed to restore truths to the Bible text that had become lost or changed since the original words were written.

  • Book of Yahweh - This "sacred name" version of the Bible is published by The House of Yahweh in Abilene, Texas. It is a modern English translation which uses the names Yahweh and Yahshua in place of God and Jesus. It also uses the Hebrew forms of place and personal names, particularly where the name of Yahweh is part of the name (such as Yeremyah for Jeremiah). Its translator claims it to be one of the most accurate English translations available anywhere today, although it eschews much of Christian theology and dogma due to its alleged pagan origins. It also does not distinguish between the Old and New Testaments, maintaining that the New Testament, rather than being a "New" covenant, is a "re-"newal of the "Old" covenant.
