Revised New Jerusalem Bible: Study Edition – Hardback
When the New Jerusalem Bible was released in 1985 it was heralded as one of the most beautiful and poetic of all the translations of the Bible, bringing to life the stories of the Old and New Testament. One would never have thought it could have been improved upon – but it has.
The Revised New Jerusalem Bible has updated scholarship, with sensitivity to subtle changes in contemporary English, but keeping the accuracy of translation and richness of tone. Gender inclusion has also been addressed by remaining faithful to the meaning of the original Scriptures while avoiding traditional male bias of the English language, thereby introducing the Bible to a new generation of readers.
