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.

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.
Reviews - What do customers think about NRSV Go Anywhere Slimline Bible-Tan/Teal Imitation Leather?
Good book, but annoying print due to the PAPER ! Mar 16, 2007
The NRSV itself is a pretty good Bible version. And, it is nice that these new "Go-Anywhere" editions may put this version into more hands. The quality of the finished product is very good, EXCEPT for the paper. The paper is not opaque enough. When you look at a page, you can see print from the other side and it is VERY annoying and distracting.
