Holy Bible: Wedding Gift Edition
The unique combination of accuracy and elegance makes the NRSV the ideal Bible for personal use, for reading aloud in groups or for buying as a special gift. This Wedding Gift Edition contains a presentation plate and an introduction on the meaning of Christian marriage by Martyn Percy, Dean of Christ Church, Oxford, and his wife, Emma, Chaplain and Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford, plus a selection of poems, prayers and reflections on love and the marriage bond by writers such as David Adam, Louis de Bernières, D. H. Lawrence, C. S. Lewis and Richard Rohr.
· 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.
· The NRSV is my first choice, both for my college classes and for my own study and devotion. The careful scholarship of the translation, the generosity of the pronouns, and the invaluable textual notations make this translation my most trusted friend in preaching, teaching, worship and prayer.
· I’m glad to have a variety of translations available for Bible reading – but when I want to do serious Bible study, I always consult the NRSV. It avoids the theological prejudice I sense in some translations, drawing from a broadly ecumenical group of top-notch scholars.
The best, simply the best.
