Available for the first time in the Anglicized Edition, and with the Apocrypha/Deuterocanonical Books as well as centre column cross-references, the NRSV is the standard text for all serious Bible study.
The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible is steadily increasing in popularity. It is highly respected among academics, including evangelicals, and used in theological colleges across the board as the most accurate translation available. It has been widely adopted across the Church of England and is in the process of being adopted for use in the Catholic liturgy.
The NRSV is an accurate translation in the tradition of the King James Version, with special sensitivity to gender inclusiveness, without any loss of clarity, and retaining the traditional style of referring to God as 'He' or 'Him.'
Completely reset in the highly-respected Anglicized Edition, along with the Apocrypha/Deuterocanonical Books, this is the ideal Bible for Catholic readers or anyone interested in these books arising out of the intra-testamental period. Cross references make it particularly suitable for study, as well as for personal reading and church use.
