Hendrickson Publishers NRSV Pew Bible with Apocrypha, Hardcover, Black

About the Translation - Translated by a multi-denominational committee, and based on the original Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic, the New Revised Standard Version is widely used by English-speaking congregations throughout the world.

About the Apocrypha - The Apocrypha is a collection of books found in the Septuagint-the Greek version of the Jewish Bible. Though not incorporated into the final, canonical version of the Hebrew scriptures, it was included in important Bible translations such as the Latin Vulgate and the original King James Version of 1611. For centuries the books of the Apocrypha have had a significant influence on Christian art, literature, and theology.

The print needs to be little larger for a large print. Everything else is all right .

Our church was very pleased with the quality of these pew Bibles and also the speed with which we received our full order - even though initially a portion was backordered. We got them all in time for Easter, which was our goal. The binding is strong and looks like it will last for years to come.

I have at least 7 different translations that I like to compare for nuances, etc. I am reading the apocrypha currently. The message is very strong.
