More About Harper Bibles
NRSV: The Bible for Everyone
Many of us pay scant attention to the Bible translation we use, and yet we all want the most accurate and readable translation available for our study and devotional use. That Bible translation is the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV). Widely recognized by scholars and religious authorities as the most accurate translation, it is also the direct successor of the beloved King James Bible, following in that Bible’s tradition of elegant, readable prose. As a literal translation rather than a paraphrase, the NRSV leaves interpretation in the hands of the reader. Its groundbreaking use of nonsexist language for generic pronouns—for example, “brothers and sisters” instead of “brothers”—corrects a long-standing problem with English translations of the Bible. Because of a lack of a generic third person singular pronoun, previous translations used “he” or “him” when both men and women were indicated, often obscuring the original meaning.
Created by a committee of scholars from all three branches of the Christian church—Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox—the NRSV is the least sectarian translation compared to most other popular versions. Further, more denominations have chosen the NRSV as their official translation than any other translation on the market. Trustworthy, readable, and ecumenical, the NRSV is the Bible for everyone.
Whether your Bible needs are academic, vocational, or devotional, Harper Bibles offers an NRSV edition perfect for you.

NRSV Catholic Edition Dec 6, 2008
perfect for those who are searching for an affordqble NRSV Catholic bible. Have very informative preface and footnotes. Also find the pararaph titles very informative. Hifhly recommended.
good English, good translation Apr 27, 2008
Here we have the best English Bible available today. The translation is consistent (e.g. "goy" consistently comes through as "nation") and the English is fluent and modern. I have a slight problem with the phrase "except for unchastity" in Mt 19:9, where the Greek literally reads "here not upon fornication" - I think a Presbyterian influence may be at work here.
