Random Bantam Doubleday Dell
The Revised New Jerusalem Bible presents anew the scholarship, character, and clarity of the 1966 Jerusalem Bible (the first modern English version) and the 1985 New Jerusalem Bible. It is a Bible that prioritizes:
• a bold, rich language as suitable for reading out loud as for studying in silence, so that “the message might be fully proclaimed” (2 Timothy 4:17)
• accurate translation of the original scriptures rather than the “dynamic equivalence” of some other modern versions
• assurance that the message of the Bible is directed to men and women equally, despite the inbuilt bias of the English language
This comprehensive Study Edition is the world’s first presentation of the full Revised New Jerusalem Bible, complete with study notes, cross-references, and book introductions. It has been prepared and edited for a modern readership by Dom Henry Wansbrough, OSB, who was general editor of the New Jerusalem Bible.
Other features include:
• The book of Psalms is based on the text of the 2010 translation of The Revised Grail Psalms.
• Ancient systems of measure and time have been replaced by modern, metric equivalents.
• A table of the notes provides explanations of the key words, themes, and ideas in the Bible’s major footnotes.
• A chronological table, an index of persons, and eight pages of full-color maps provide historical context.
