Item description for NRSV XL Edition Bible - Large Print - Brown Imitation Leather by Harper Bibles...

The NRSV has been grossly undermarketed and undersold. In our efforts to provide new and innovative editions of this beloved translation, we now introduce the XL edition. Targeting those who appreciate an easier--to--see setting, we have combined the latest trends in design with a larger print size. The NRSV XL offers beautiful and hip styling with a wonderful reading experience. No one will feel that they have been relegated to ugly and bulky larger print editions by purchasing an XL.

The New Revised Standard Version is the translation used by mainline Protestant churches, Orthodox churches, and by many Catholics. The New Revised Standard Version 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 in many ways it has become. None of the new, more sectarian translations have approached its standards of elegance and accuracy.

Overall, this special easy--to--read large print setting makes the Bible a wonderful reading experience. It also includes a concordance index to help people find key passages.

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 XL Edition Bible - Large Print - Brown Imitation Leather?

The Bible  Feb 9, 2010
The quality of the Bible is very nice. The leather is very nice. I bought it for a gift, and now I want one for myself.
 
Not Large Print!  Feb 3, 2010
"XL Edition"? What a cruel joke! HarperCollins should be ashamed of their misleading advertising!

The print is NOT very large (only SLIGHTLY larger than the print in my regular old Harper Collins Study Bible--the difference is almost imperceptible). And the paper is very thin (like Bible paper usually is) so you can see a lot of "bleed-through" from the other side of the page, which makes it even harder to read for people with vision problems.

If you are looking for a Bible with "large print," then DON'T BUY THIS BIBLE! You will be very disappointed.
 
poor service  Dec 27, 2009
I had to cancel my order for this Bible today. I ordered this in November for a Christmas gift, with a gift card to be included. It still has not come and I had to go out to buy it. The large print makes it very easy to read and provides space to make notes. This is the version of the Bible which is chosen by The United Churches Of Christ, Congregational and is far easier to understand than any of the other versions I have read, while still keeping to the original Bible. I plan to buy another for myself, but not through this site as the Bible company has trouble filling the orders.
 
Beautiful Bible  Aug 6, 2009
I read it every day. I like this version, and the larger print is very satisfactory. Our church also purchased a large number of these to put in the pews. It is well bound and should last many, many years.
One point to be aware of, is that it is shaped a little different than most books, being longer in width (7 3/4 inches wide and 8 1/4 inches high). this site has one of the best prices I have found on this Bible.
 
XL is still a challenge to read  Jul 12, 2009
I purchased the XL print bible for an aging friend. We were excited to find this translation, but when it came, the print was still too small for her to read. It is a challenge to find a contemporary translation with print at or over 15 points. XL would make a good desk copy; it looks nice and is interesting in dimensions for a book. If you need large print, however, you'll need to keep looking.
