Press Reviews

· The NRSV is indispensable for serious study of the Bible. Over and over again, it powerfully illuminates the more difficult passages in the beautiful King James and the Douay-Rheims Versions. A joy to read.

- Anne Rice

· I view the NRSV translation to be the finest English Bible we have today. Its scholarship is impeccable. The English is accurate, approachable, and readable. I recommend it highly.

- Richard J. Foster

The best contemporary translation of the Bible, beautifully presented, superbly footnoted, and an obvious must for every Catholic household.

- James Martin, SJ
