Item description for NRSV Go-Anywhere Bible-Tan/Green DuoTone by Harper Collins Publishers...
Overview The NRSV is one of the most trusted, most accepted, and most accurate translation of the Bible on the market and the only nonsectarian Bible created for all churches, in a special setting for easy reading--now in a fun, colorful, go-anywhere format.
The New Revised Standard Version is the "standard" translation used by mainline Protestant churches, Orthodox churches, and by many Catholics. The NRSV debuted in 1989 and is owned by the National Council of Churches, which is the leading force for ecumenical cooperation among Christians in the United States representing thirty-five denominations with forty-five million members in more than 100,000 churches across the country. They have chosen HarperCollins to be the exclusive licensor of the translation for the world (nonexclusively in the UK).
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.
This unique 4" x 8 1/4" setting combines the portability of a compact Bible with the readability of a larger Bible. It also includes a concordance index to help people find key passages.
This edition also includes the Apocrypha, the Jewish books recognized by the Catholic, Orthodox, and some Protestant denominations.

Missing Pages!! Apr 14, 2010
As bibles go the NRSV with Apocrypha is great, however, even after 2 returns this book does not include pages 157-183 most of the book of Romans and part of 1Corinthians. This bible was always used as a study bible for me and a "follow along" bible for church, so I didnt catch the missing pages right away. Must just be this publisher.
Ideal Bible Apr 10, 2009
This bible is a perfect size for anyone's book bag. I like to have a bible with me where ever I go just in case I need some inspiration. Even though the size of the font is small it is not unreadable. Plus its references are great for its compact size.
Perfect! Jan 4, 2009
I'm a seminary student and this Bible is perfect for me. I can toss it in my backpack or purse because of it's compact size. But with compact size comes rather small print!
Black backing paper solves the problem of thin paper Oct 2, 2008
At first I didn't think this portable Bible was very readable. A magnifier solves the problem of small print, but as others have noted about these "go anywhere" Bibles, the paper is so thin that text on the other side shows through. If you cut a piece of black paper to size, though, and put it behind the page you're reading, the problem is solved. So this is very usable after all, even for older eyes -- and the size and weight are wonderful.
