Description

The first major translation of the Christian Scriptures from the original languages to be undertaken since the King James Version (1611), the Revised Standard Version debuted in 1952 to simultaneous acclaim and condemnation from American Christians. Mainline Protestants and Roman Catholics lauded the new translation, while many evangelicals villified it. The RSV dramatically shaped the course of English Bible translation work in the latter half of the Twentieth Century, and it remains the Bible of choice for many people. This 50th Anniversary Edition features a clear new type setting that readers are certain to appreciate.show more
