    My son was looking to purchase this for a Bible class for college, and I told him I would check here too. So glad I did, even with postage it was much more reasonable than any other place we looked. THANKS CBD for providing this Bible at such a wonderful price!

    In my opinion, the New Revised Standard Version is the rightful heir to the King James legacy passing through ASV, RSV, and now the 4th edition of the NRSV. Many evangelicals will not look at this because they may feel the editorial team is not conservative/fundamental enough (to their loss). It is a good marriage of traditional wording and phrasing yet dispensing with the overly archaic features of the KJV. It takes full advantage of modern textual resources including Dead Sea Scrolls. They also are careful to reveal Singular/Plural distinctions (in footnotes) which are lost by dispensing with the thee/thou's from the KJV. Occasionally, they go a little overboard on the gender inclusive thing, but most modern translations do also.

    One of the reasons this translation flies under the radar is that the current version is not available on the internet in the various desktop, web, and mobile software products. Also, the various size and style offerings that most translations have are quite restricted for this one. Oxford is really your main choice with not allot of other (good) options. This Bible comes with translator notes and textual footnotes as well. They are typically on the liberal/scholarly side, but that also keeps much of the denominational bias out. Since the Apocrypha is included, it makes for a fairly heavy Bible and the associated thinner paper and somewhat smaller print, but the quality of the translation is worth it. The standard Oxford edition comes in paperback, hardcover, and bonded leather, etc. I have the paper back. It opens fairly flat considering the large number of pages.

    If you're looking for state of the art paper, font, layout, cover, etc. you can do better with other translations. But if you want a readable, accurate, scholarly, quality translation of the Holy Bible that is one of the best representations of the original manuscripts available, you should give it a try. I own about 20 translations and I'm using this for my regular morning reader.

    Very easy to read. I especially like references to other contemporary works in the same time frame in the footnotes such as the works of Josephus. Would definately recommend this to anyone looking to further there study.
