Zondervan NRSV Ministry Bible Paperback

Few Bible translations achieve the degree of respect and acceptance enjoyed by the Revised Standard Version over the past half century. Now, with all the Bible's literal accuracy and dignity preserved, we welcome the New RSV. Dramatic archeological discoveries shed new light on our understanding of ancient languages while, no less dramatically, our own use of language changes, too. The most broadly representative translation team yet assembled worked with these changes to bring us the NRSV.

Key changes include:

Replacement of archaic wordsRevision of English words that have changed in meaningCorrection of confusing word orderUse of common-gender words where intendedImprovement in the sound and clarity of text when read aloud.

  • 9 point type

Very nice bible for the price; easy readable big letters.The NRSV text is for me an accurate, well composed text. Fitting for any kind of bible reading: study,churches, meditation and memorising.KJV has shorter translated sentences ,more easy to memorise. White strong paper, a fair paperback!
