One of the privileges of being a Bible Gateway Blogger Grid member is that I will occasionally be offered a review copy of Bibles & Christian books.
Some of the components that I like about this edition of the NRSV are:
- The Reflections from Jimmy Carter:
- Bible in Focus – These are formatted like a daily devotional.
- Bible in Life – These are based on passages that have special meaning to President Carter.
- Ponder & Pray – These contain prayers based on a particular passage of scripture.
- Reflections – These are little snippets of wisdom.
- The Comfort Print® Font is easy to read without having to have a heavy large-print Bible.
- The quality of the paper; I am a very tactile person & the smooth sturdy paper is delightful.
- An Alphabetically List of the Books of the Bible.
- The introductions to each book are written in clear, easy to understand language.
I have never spent much time reading the NRSV so I decided to use it exclusively for a few days, including using it at church and a couple of Bible studies before completing my review. During this time I found the translation to be accurate when reading side by side with several other versions. I also appreciate the notations regarding the original Hebrew or Greek words. I will definitely be using the NRSV to study The Word in the future.
