“The RNJB fulfils the pressing need for a lucid translation with clear explanatory notes for use in public and private reading, for instruction and for the liturgy.”

Dom Henry Wansbrough OSB

"The Revised New Jerusalem Bible is an outstanding piece of work."

Nicholas King, The Tablet

"The RNJB is one of the most beautiful and poetic of all the translations of the Bible. Years ago, I read the New Jerusalem Bible and was astonished at how it brought to vivid life the stories of the Old and New Testament. One could, I discovered with delight, read them as if you were reading a well-written story. Now the RNJB improves on this by updating its scholarship and its sensitivity to subtle changes in contemporary English, and in the process introduces the Bible to a new generation of readers."

Fr James Martin SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage, editor at large, America Magazine

The very first full-text edition of the Revised New Jerusalem Bible (RNJB) – a Bible for study and proclamation.

This exciting new text presents anew the scholarship, character and clarity of the 1966 Jerusalem Bible (the first modern English version) and the 1985 New Jerusalem Bible. The RNJB prioritises accuracy of translation and richness of tone, capturing the rigour and poetry of the original JB for new generations.

This volume contains the entire biblical text with a comprehensive set of study notes, cross references and book introductions.

Other features include -

Formal equivalence. Accurate translation of the language, concepts and imagery of the original scriptures.

‘Clear read’ style. Uses linguistic style and speech patterns best suited for being read out loud.

Study notes. Comprehensive new study materials (cross-references and over 130,000 words of footnotes) by Henry Wansbrough, reflecting the most up-to-date and ecumenical scholarship.

Gender inclusion. Remains faithful to the meaning of the original scriptures while avoiding traditional male bias of the English language.

Revised Grail Psalter. The book of Psalms is based on the 2010 translation of The Revised Grail Psalms.

8pp colour maps.

2 ribbon markers.
