    I'd like to know if it were possible to find the New World (english) Translation on the web? I'm French and I only possess the french translation, both editions 1987 & 1995 (actually the french translation is not very good...). I heard that some copies formatted for e-sword were available somewhere on the web. Somebody to help me please!

    God bless you all!

    Try writing to the WBTS, they may send you one, or get someone to bring it around for you, when they offer a bible study just say "no thanks" and shut the door.

    Private message me your email address, and i'll send you a zipped text copy of the nwt. It's 1.5 megs.

    Your best bet is to just walk into the nearest Kingdom Hall and go to the literature counter and ask for one... of course you will have to deal with all of the love bombing.

    Just make sure you DON'T give them your name or address, otherwise they will be knocking on your door ever other day wanting to start a bible study.

    Uh, why do you want one? Please tell me it's to compare it to other Bibles and see how wrongly it is translated......

    Actually I'm not a JW. I am officially catholic (as the majority of the French, till the imminent and whole islamization of France and of European Union...), but my studies of the Bible made me be really interested in the lutheran Reformation and in the teachings of John Wesley.

    As I said, the french tanslation of the NWT is really bad and the original english translation would be more useful to me in my comparisions with others english, spanish, portuguese, italian and of course french translations of the Bible. The NWT is said to be biased but I can't really judge it with this laughable translation to french that JW French speakers are using. I want to see it by myself with the english original.

    God bless you all!
