Overview

NRSV Bible by Harper Bibles

The New Revised Standard Version is the "standard" translation used by mainline Protestant churches, Orthodox churches, and by many Catholics. The NRSV debuted in 1989 and is owned by the National Council of Churches, which is the leading force for ecumenical cooperation among Christians in the United States representing thirty–five denominations with forty–five million members in more than 100,000 churches across the country. They have chosen HarperCollins to be the exclusive licensor of the translation for the world (nonexclusively in the UK).

The New Revised Standard Version is recognized in scholarly circles as the most accurate translation into English of the original Hebrew and Greek texts. In the tradition of its predecessors, the King James Version and the Revised Standard Version, the NRSV was designed to be the "standard" version for English–speaking people across all denominations, which in many ways it has become. None of the new, more sectarian translations have approached its standards of elegance and accuracy.

This unique one–column setting allows people to read the Bible as work of literature. Each book is introduced with an original wood–cut. Overall, this special easy–to–read setting makes the Bible a wonderful reading experience. It also includes a concordance index to help people find key passages.

This special Catholic edition includes all 23 books of the Catholic canon, a presentation page, and a ribbon.

NRSV Standard Bible with Apocrypha (Tan/Brown) 4 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 29 reviews.

It is nice to have this translation available. My only wish is that I would like to be able to enter the specific chapter and verse and go directly there. As I have figured it out, I go to contents to get to the book, then I can select the chapter, but must scroll to the verse. Finding a specific verse quickly is not easily accomplished.

I much prefer the Nook version to the Kindle version, which I returned. The formatting on the page is significantly superior.

I use NRSV, ESV, NASB and NIV for Bible study. The NRSV ePub chap numbers are highlighted in blue, verses are not highlighted at all, footnotes are blue with good touch jump forward/back. Navigation is simple but limited. NRSV falls far short of the others by a wide margin. The ESV is free, NASB is $1.99, and NIV is $5.99. The NASB and NIV are offered in ePup format (not recommended) and as Nook apps (Yes!) by Tecarta. Implemented as a Nook app they offer better navigation, highlighting, and many bookmarking and note taking features not available on ePup format. Tecarta also offers KJV and NKJV apps.

A good Bible translation widely used today.

I had been searching for a Bible that used similar language to the Bible I received after confirmation in the Anglican Church during the 1960's. I DID NOT want the Old Testament to refer to God as Jehovah. This Bible is it! In addition, the NOOK format is also extremely easy to navigate. Considering there are 1,999 pages, locating a particular passage is fast.

I love the ebook version-very easy to find and mark passages, and follow along at Church, but I have one issue. This book is protected by DRM, which means I can only use it on Nook programs from what I've been able to find. I have found a different app for my tablet that I like better, but with the DRM protections I can't read my bible in that app! This is a big problem for me, and if I had known it would be a problem, I would have kept looking for a different version.
