'I have long regarded the NRSV as the gold standard of English Bible translation. . . This edition's care over word choices and language makes it very appropriate for reading aloud and for personal Bible reading or use in Bible study groups.' Steve Walton, Professor of New Testament, Trinity College, Bristol Acclaimed by both biblical scholars and general readers as the most reliable English Bible available, the New Revised Standard Version follows in the great tradition of the King James Version in being true to the original meaning of the text while conveying it in a dignified style that speaks powerfully to today's readers. Now with British spelling, grammar and punctuation, and with over 20,000 updates and enhancements to the text, this is the first comprehensive revision of the NRSV since it was published in 1989. Features: British text Clear readable 9 pt typeface Double-column layout Flexi binding Illustrated silver endpapers featuring 'Presented to:' Silver ribbon marker Silver head and tail bands Removable white bellyband Lovely soft-tone cover material with debossed design Printed on paper from sustainable sources 'The new British version of the NRSVue. . . reflects the latest scholarship while being sensitive to cultural changes on issues such as gender, race and disability. It also echoes a more distinctly English tradition which will be welcome to many who are the cultural descendants of those who still treasure the King James Version.' Angela Tilby, Canon Emeritus of Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford 'Thirty years of advances in textual analysis make it more accurate than any other translation, and now its sensitive rendering into elegant and inclusive British English ensures a smoother and more rewarding reading experience for millions of English speakers, both in the UK and around the world. All of which means the NRSVue now stands at the pinnacle of English Bible translations.' Emma Ineson, Bishop of Kensington, London 'The finest English Bible we have today.' Richard J. Foster, theologian and writer
