David E. Carnahan from Family Academy believes that "Having read and studied Scripture from numerous translations over the years, I am delighted with Roy’s attention to the details of the original text and his ability to convey those details in words and
sentence structures that I readily understand in my culture and life today. I am excited for our children and grandchildren to have 'The Living Water New Testament' available to them".

Dr. Christian Overman, Director of Worldview Matters raves "The skills Roy honed as a Wycliffe Bible Translator have been put to good use in fulfilling his own longing for a more readable English translation.

I started reading Roy’s translation about a year ago, and it is indeed ‘clear and flowing.’ I must tell you, it is my favorite version of the New Testament. I recommend it without reservation".
