New Common English Bible a disappointment

I just don't like it. The new CEB bible translation leaves much to be desired in my humble opinion.

All references that currently read "Son of Man" (referring to Jesus) now read "the Human One". And the Beatitudes have changed the "blessed" to "happy".

As if messing with the Beatitudes wasn't bad enough, the Lord's Prayer has changed to:

"Our Father who is in heaven, uphold the holiness of your name. Bring in your kingdom so that your will is done on earth as it’s done in heaven. Give us the bread we need for today. Forgive us for the ways we have wronged you, just as we also forgive those who have wronged us. And don’t lead us into temptation, but rescue us from the evil one."

And no more will we recognize the "ashes to ashes" at funerals because Genesis 2 "dust from the ground" has been changed to fertile "topsoil". Thus leaving me with the impression of a newly potted petunia.
