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 Standard Bible (black)?

Excellent service and product  Feb 14, 2010
Excellent service, product arrived before its scheduled date and is a wonderful addition to my collection. Medium font makes reading easier for eye glass wearers. I will definitely purchase other items from the seller.
 
Well made, nice size Bible  Feb 8, 2010
The Bible I received is the one pictured, with brown and tan leather binding. This is a well made Bible that when opened up lies flat. The text is single column, which is hard to find in a Bible (most have the narrow double columns). The font sytle is easy to read, and is a good size, so it's not hard on the eyes. Each book opens with a great looking small wood cut picture; some of them repeat, but there are a large number.

The only negative is that the paper is flimsy-it's typical Bible-paper, but is very thin. There are also no maps in the back; this is becoming more frequent, since maps are usually in color and having them would probably raise the price of the book, but its nice to have them for reference.

Just to be clear, this version, the NRSV with Apocrypha, contains all the books of the Apocrypha between the Old and New Testaments-this version would be for mainline Protestants such as Episcopalians (Anglicans) and Lutherans. It could be used by Catholics also, but a specifically Catholic version would integrate the Apocrypha into the Old Testament, and not include the Books of 1 Esdras, 2 Esdras, and the Prayer of Mannaseh. None mainline Protestants would probably purchase the NRSV without the Apocrypha.

 
Beautiful leather bound Bible  Apr 25, 2009
Beautiful Bible. My church uses the NSRV version and they are hard to find locally. This one is perfect-typeset easy to read.
 
A confirmation class Bible  Jan 7, 2008
In recent days, it's been harder and harder to find the "just right" translation of the scriptures. When I was asked to organize my church's confirmation class, I set out to find the translation that would work the best for kids who were trying to gain ownership of their faith. The NRSV did the trick, and this new edition from Harper is the best! It's durable enough to keep up with a caving trip, and very easy to read. The kids love it too. This bible comes with my fullest recommendation.
 
NRSV Standard Bible  May 9, 2007
This hardback Bible has a smooth black and tan leather-like binding that feels very nice in the hand. The wood-cut pictures are very attractive and the print is larger than in most regular-print Bibles and of a very readable font. There are helpful subject headings. The Bible lies flat when open. The concordance in the back is helpful, but not exhaustive.

My one complaint is with the pages. The paper is quite thin, and the print can been seen through them, especially the book titles and wood-cut pictures, which are dark enough to obscure the print on the other side of the page. The outer edges of the pages also curl upward instead of lying flat, which makes turning to a particular passage difficult.

I am glad to see publishers finally trying to print decent looking NRSV Bibles. This one is an improvement over most, but could have been better with different paper and perhaps a soft, flexible cover instead of hardback.
