Not any more. The original translation project in the 1960s was backed 
by many churches, but this version was never very popular and is little 
used by churches now. Part of the reason is that it is far too free with 
conjectural emendation of the text. A few churches use a revision of it, 
among other improvements based on fewer conjectural emendations, the 
Revised English Bible.
