Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Few Bible translations achieve the degree of respect and acceptance enjoyed by the Revised Standard Version over the past half century. Now, with all the Bible's literal accuracy and dignity preserved, we welcome the New RSV! Dramatic archeological discoveries shed new light on our understanding of ancient languages while, no less dramatically, our own use of language changes, too. The most broadly representative translation team yet assembled worked with these changes to bring us the NRSV -- a translation as literal as possible. Key changes include: - Replacement of archaic words; - Revision of English words that have changed in meaning; - Correction of confusing word order; Use of common-gender words where intended; Improvement in the sound and clarity of text when read aloud. Accurate, understandable, and reverent. A new standard for all -- the NRSV.

I can see why this Bible was chosen for the churches. Of all the different Bibles I have this one is by far the best and clearest. It's a shame they call it a "pew Bible" because that stops people from having it in their homes where it should be. The print, the pages, the binding are excellent. Just an excellent Bible.

I bought several of these bibles for my Sunday School classroom. The bibles are attractive and reasonable priced. The bibles we had were not the same version as the curriculum and were falling apart so I expect happy children this fall!

I have purchased two pew Bibles from Zondervan-- an NIV and an NRSV-- and I must say that these Bibles are of a much higher quality than one might expect from a pew Bible. They are portable and sturdy, with a sewn binding, bright white pages, and crisp text. If you are looking for an inexpensive, text-only Bible that can handle a lot of wear and tear, you cannot go wrong with one of Zondervan's pew Bibles.

This particular Bible is the NRSV (New Revised Standard Version). The text is AMERICAN English, which is a big plus if you happen to be an American, as I am. On the other hand, it does NOT include the Apocrypha or Deuterocanonical books, which may or may not be an issue for you.

Excellent choice for my needs. The book is a nice size and weight for me; feels good in the hand, has nice font size, good indices in the front: contents of the old and new testaments listed In order, plus an alphabetic index to all books with page numbers. The page feel is nice, not too thin, not too heavy, they should last a long time.
there are 3 pages in the back that are very useful: one lists the miracles of Jesus by category and the miracles of the apostles, each has the vook and page number of each. The 2nd page lists the parables of Jesus and again the pointers to where to fin them in the bible.(these 2 pages were very useful to me and an excellent feature. The 3rd page has promises from the Bible in 2 categories:God's promise of, and God's Promise when you, and then the categories. e.g.,feel guilty, when you are grieving, and many more. Again, IMO very, very useful.
and yes you can say "but it's only a paperback". For me it's a perfect, practical, usable Bible.

I have been using an NIV Bible for years, and in seminary we have to use the NRSV, or CEB, and I love the NRSV. It is written really well, and is a fantastic Bible. This has now become my primary Bible for reading.

I got it because it is the one used in my church but the one I purchased is in larger print. I just wish it had come in a softcover edition because it would be easier for an older person to carry and hold each Sunday.

I needed a copy to use for college classes, and I find this Bible to do the job perfectly. I like the weight and texture of the paper and the book itself - for a Bible, it is lightweight. The NRSV translation seems to be the standard in an academic setting. Great go-to reference copy that I will be keeping after graduation.
