Description

The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible was always intended to be an ecumenical project, and it has found a warm reception in churches of most traditions. The translation has been well received in the Catholic Church, and the publication of an edition that includes the books of the Bible in Catholic canonical order is therefore extremely welcome. The British Anglicized Text has been used for this new Bible, ensuring that Catholic readers and others who prefer this format will be instantly comfortable with the spelling, punctuation, and phrasing. Extra features include the insertion of single colour maps at appropriate points of the text to assist the reader, together with a small number of explanatory tables. The usual textual footnotes that are always associated with the NRSV appear at the foot of each page, and the normal introductory matter is also included. A further feature is the insertion of the text of the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation Dei Verbum after the prefaces. The Catholic Edition of the NRSV has a distinctive and very attractive cover to boards binding that will ensure a strong eye-catching presence in the bookstore.show more
