Product Description

The complete Bible in Japanese. It uses the Shinkaiyaku translation which is quite literal, and has furigana pronunciation marks on all kanji (except the few times when the number or letter indicating a note or reference in the references at the bottom of the page replaces the furigana in that space).
Improvements in this 2003 revision (3rd edition) include:
  • A More Readable Design — New, spacious page layout, new paper and bolder 9.5-point typeface make it easy on the eyes.
  • Gracious Wording — Non-derogatory terms for leprosy and handicapped people (blind, deaf, etc.) open God's Word to all people.
  • The Results of the Latest Research — 900 wording changes reflect new scholarly research in the original languages of the Bible, making the meaning clearer to contemporary Japanese.
  • Color maps
  • Cross-references
  • Text notes
  • 9.5-point typeface
  • 2nd edition page numbers are in brackets
  • Two ribbon markers
  • Gray vinyl cover with blue jacket.
  • 7.50" x 5.75" x 2.00"

    Tell us a little about yourself.  Word of Life Press Ministries (WLPM) is Japan's largest Christian publishin, retailin and distributing enterprise. We are Evangelical, non-denominational, and have partnered with many churches, denominations and missions in publishing for the Japanese people. See our web site at for English descriptions of all our 800 titles in print.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  We wanted to introduce this NJB (Shinkaiyaku) translation into the N. American market to make it available to the 500,000 Japanese living in N. America who may not otherwise have access to it.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  A Japanese translation that is trustworthy for teaching sound doctrine for Japanese churches. So the New Japanese Bible (NJB) translation is rather literal. This is the 2003 revision.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  The binding of this edition is a flexible gray vinyl with a gray jacket. This is the medium print edition and is the most popular edition of the NJB. There are cross references at the bottom of every page with 8 pages of color maps in the back. Because it is a literal translation, it may be a little difficult to understand for Japanese who know nothing about the Bible. For those people we recommend the Japanese Living Bible which we also publish.
