The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) is the translation used by mainline Protestant, Orthodox, and Catholic churches. The NRSV is recognized in scholarly circles as the most accurate translation into English of the original Hebrew and Greek texts. In the tradition of its predecessors, the King James Version and the Revised Standard Version, the NRSV was designed to be the standard version for English-speaking people across all denominations, which is what it has become.

Alice5 Stars Out Of 5Wonderful!September 19, 2016AliceQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I purchased this NRSV Daily Bible for my husband. I have a copy of the same Bible (although I have the one with a soft cover), and my husband liked it so much, he mentioned that he would also like one. We both like this version because of the contemplation questions, meditations and prayers at the end of each day's section. These meditations are quite brilliant, written by theologians such as Dietrich Bonhoeffer and Thomas Merton, as well as current ones, and they have really helped me to think about and understand scripture in entirely new and deeper ways. My husband was very pleased with this gift, and the brown imitation leather is soft and appears to be sturdy. We could not be happier with this version of the Bible!
GLM5 Stars Out Of 5Great!January 15, 2016GLMQuality: 0Value: 0Meets Expectations: 0I purchased this for my husband for Christmas and he has been enjoying it since the beginning of January. He has used several one-year Bibles in the past and this one seems to be his favorite.
knr5 Stars Out Of 5NRSV Daily BibleMarch 18, 2015knrQuality: 5Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5This bible is a breath of air. The type is very legible. The meditations and devotions are inspiring and speak to the theme of each text without preaching to the reader. I use this bible as a devotional guide during the afternoon. Would recommend this bible to anyone.
StoneNorth CarolinaAge: 45-54Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Love this resource!August 12, 2014StoneNorth CarolinaAge: 45-54Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5For starters, this is a nice looking bible. The "imitation leather" cover, is a pleasant tan shade of the popular soft leather-like synthetic type; it feels smooth and 'buttery' to the touch. It's sturdily bound, opens willingly and drapes comfortably over your hands without being so limp that it's hard to manage, and the type face and page layout are done so attractively that it's a joy to read. It's not a 'thin-line' bible but it is surprisingly light (to me). The paper is of a good enough weight to minimize 'ghosting' of the text through the pages. The pages are not gilded but it seems that gold edges would subtract from its over all understated elegance somehow.
This bible has proven more valuable to me than I expected. The devotional material is 'deeper' and by FAR more useful than I typically find in other daily devotional resources coming out these days. The content "actually works" for me and draws me into prayer naturally and consistently. It's as if the publisher found the creme de la creme of meaningful work from the best devotional authors (old and new) and artfully placed it near the scripture texts where it will be the most helpful ('Like apples of gold in settings of silver, so is a word skillfully spoken. Proverbs 25:11). The questions for contemplation and short 'starter' prayer are also very thoughtfully done. The daily readings are not tied to the calendar so one can simply jump right in where they wish or continue where they left off. This is also a great tool for breaking those 'log jams' in prayer that beset us from time to time, and I've really come to appreciate having such dependable devotional "starter fluid" around. The format is ideal for those employing 'lectio divina' (divine reading), and there is a good explanation of this useful, ancient prayer technique in the introductory pages. There is also decent space for jotting notes around the devotional material if you are so inclined. A presentation page is included in the front which is great since this bible in particular would make an especially loving and thoughtful gift for any Christian brother or sister, whether newbie or seasoned traveler with the Lord. I've found helpful material in it for sermons on several occasions and it would surely be a valuable resource in a prayer or study group setting as well.
This bible is an exceptional value at this price considering how well it's made, in terms of both form and content and how pleasant and easy it is to use. A rare find in a daily bible. I highly recommend it.
