Great Bible Aug 31, 2006
My wife and I spent weeks looking for a good Bible that we could use for a daily Bible study. This Bible is exactly what we were looking for. The reading plans are good tools, and the comments thoughtout the text are wonderful. We are very happy with this Bible.
Equality does not change Role/role... Aug 29, 2005
I've found the "New Revised Standard Version" ('NRSV') to fill a void that no other published version in modern English has been able to. It's a highly accurate translation, safer than the NIV and NAB through its stricter conformance, though it still contains translating that is less accurate - even to the point of misconveyance, here and there.
But, due to both the level of its accuracy and the balance of translation methodologies used within, it reveals to being a needful translation. Combining it with the overall most accurate [popularly] published English version of the Bible to date, Rotherham's Emphasized Bible, you have about the most expediently effective combination that is currently available in published format - though lexicons and concordances should always be consulted... I have researched and examined in depth the bulk of published English versions, including the ASV, ISV, Holman and New Century versions - the NCV being the one endorsed by Max [lucrative] Lucado (1st Samuel 8:3; 2nd Peter 2:3). Rotherham's version essentially eliminates the need for the NASB - though neither, in and of themselves, meet the overall need. I am confident in the trustworthiness of the [decisive] results I've allowed the Evidences/evidences to put before me.
Concerning the gender generalization used throughout the NRSV, though not present in all related passages, it should be a matter of translation - not tradition or world movement. The Greek word 'anthropos' indeed does refer to mankind (or human beings), rather than exclusively the male gender - though he is the human basis, as God intended, made in His image. Eve is indeed the "mother of the living", but came from Adam and was to be his assistant and "the glory" of him (man) - not ruler over him or even equal in [gender-related] role.
The Greek word 'aner', on the other hand, constricts to the adult male - as compared to a male child. If one is to "rightly divide" the Word of [proven] Truth/truth, yes even instinctually proven, we need to harmonize the applicable evidences. Thus, for women it becomes a matter of God-given/authorized role - rather than "equality", as the rebellious ones so manipulate it. And God is not of confusion and disorder... (1st Corinthians 14:33)
Now while all 'anthropos' need to faithfully obey the commands (yes Commands) of the Creator, if they love Him and pay Him the due respect/honor, it does not change His omnipotence in determining the purposes and roles for what He has created...
It doesn't have to be older tradition in order to be Pharisaical, if you will... The process of elimination, inclusive of comparison-checking, has its part in the harmonization process. Concordance is not accomplished through partiality, though God is the Master Designer. (?)
The First Bible I REALLY Read Apr 27, 2003
I love this Bible and a year later am still very excited with it. It's easy to read, and even includes in the beginning of each book/chapter HOW you should read that particular book with things to look for. People you'll meet in reading that book are introduced and you're given references for where to find more about them. There are lots of little features where a verse will be disected and explained and many extra stories that give you the interesting details behind some of the Biblical characters. It's a million times easier to understand than a KJV. This is the first Bible I've been able to sit down and read and don't want to put it down. It's just much easier to understand. If you have had a hard time reading the Bible, try this one.
Great for teens and adults Dec 15, 2002
My wife and I bought this for our teenage son last year. It has quickly become the family bible. Im buying one for my wife this year for Christmas. At the start of each book it gives a brief history and gives suggestions on how to get the most of the reading. I would recomend this bible for teens and adults
Great for beginners! Oct 30, 2001
As an adult who has never read the entire Bible or spent much time in Bible study, I was looking for something that would help guide me through the Bible. This Bible was my answer! It has wonderful features that help you understand what you are reading and why it is important. Each book has an introduction that helps define the overall focus of the particular book and gives ways that help you relate the chapter/book to your personal life as a Christian. If you are just beginning your study of the Bible this is a must have! You will not be disappointed.
