Product Description

The 1966 original Jerusalem Bible was immensely popular as an ecumenical version for study, liturgy, and personal reading. This 1985 revision takes note of recent biblical scholarship with rewritten notes and introductions, new translations to improve literary quality and accuracy, and eight pages of newly drawn maps. Some of the best features remain undisturbed: single-column format, verse numbers in the margins, chronological and genealogical tables, and an index of biblical themes in the major footnotes. 2136 pages, hardcover from Doubleday.

    This review was written for New Jerusalem Bible, Bonded Leather Black.
    It should be noted that there are not a great many editions of the NJB available. That being said, there is really nothing wrong with this one.

    The bonded leather looks good and is somewhat flexible. The binding feels tight, like a glued paperback. The text, while not large is clear and readable. It does have a ribbon marker, as indicated.

    Be aware that this Bible does have very limited footnotes, NOT the extensive commentary for which larger hardcover editions of this translation are known.

    I recently discovered the New Jerusalem translation, and this version is fast becoming my favorite study Bible. The notes are great, and offer an academic perspective. Also, when the original Greek or Hebrew is perhaps unclear, this translation makes note of that. I would highly recommend it to anyone interested in serious academic theological study.
