More About Harper Bibles

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.

Reviews - What do customers think about NRSV HarperCollins Catholic Gift Bible (white)?

Fine Bible For Daily Use  Mar 26, 2008
I have been very excited over the past year or so to see that HarperCollins has published new editions of the NRSV Catholic Edition. This edition is notable because it fits nicely in the hand when reading, as well as being a good size to take with you on the road. This, however, is not a compact Bible, yet it is smaller than a typical standard medium-sized one. (This is nice, since the print is not too small.) In addition, the cover is very flexible and durable.

What make this Bible even better is the additional material at the beginning. It includes reading guides, introduction to Catholic Spiritual life, a cool picture of Pope Benedict XVI, Maps, chronology of Catholic history, reading plan, and introductions to each book of the Bible. (What makes the book introductions useful is that they contain information as to when the particular book is read during the liturgical calendar.) Of course, at the end of the book is a handy concordance, which can be helpful at times.

If there were two things I would like to see added in future editions, they would be scriptural cross-references and a list of the 3-Year Mass reading cycle, at least for Sundays and Holy Days.

But overall, if you are looking for an everyday Bible that you can use for helping your prayer life, this Bible certainly fits the bill. It would be great to see HarperCollins continue to publish fine Catholic Bibles like this one, perhaps even a Catholic study Bible to compete with the Oxford editions.
