Brad Cunningham3 Stars Out Of 5March 17, 2010Brad CunninghamThe New Jerusalem Bible is, contrary to other comments, a new translation from the original languages into English. The original Jerusalem Bible (before the New Jerusalem Bible) relied heavily on the French, but not so with the new. The style of the English is literary and most publishers and critical reviewers of conservative stripe will admit it is very accurate. Whether or not one likes it is a matter of subjective taste. If you are of the KJV / Tyndale line, you might not like this translation. If you are open to new translations in contemporary English, this one is as good as they get. I especially like the Psalms. This edition of the NJB only gets three stars because this is an inexpensive paperback trade publication. It isn't intended to be a five star book. But the translation is good and the price is reasonable (actually a bit high for what you get, but the most reasonable available.) As a note of interest, this New Jerusalem Bible is the most widely used English language Catholic Bible in the world outside the US.
Don Huffman4 Stars Out Of 5November 21, 2008Don HuffmanA easy reading, and understandable translation that includes all the known scriptures (includes the apocrypha) in a nicely visible font (and you cannot complain about the price).
