The REB updates The New English Bible, retaining the latter's elegant literary style, but removing its archaisms. The REB employs a modest amount of inclusive language (e.g. 'brothers and sisters' for 'brothers') and is good for public reading. Like the NEB before it, the REB is a British translation, sponsored by all the main Christian denominations. This hardback includes just the Old and New Testaments and the page numbers match the Cambridge REB Lectern Bibles, so the hardback makes an excellent pew Bible. Features
