INTRODUCTION Darton, Longman and Todd publishes three Bible translations – the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible and the New Revised Standard Version (Catholic Edition) – in a variety of study and pocket-sized editions. The Jerusalem Bible (JB) first appeared in 1966, one of the very first Bibles to be published in accessible, contemporary English. It was hailed as a masterpiece of textual accuracy and modern style, which kept as close as possible to the meaning of the ancient texts from which it had been translated. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) was first published in 1985, reflecting the desire to build on the success of the Jerusalem Bible. The fresh translation from the original scriptures is accompanied by thoroughly revised study material, and incorporates changes in scholarship (since publication of the JB) as well as the fruits of two decades’ experience of using the JB in public worship. The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) is increasingly widely used in public worship. It offers the fruits of the best biblical scholarship in clear, readable, contemporary English. This Catholic Edition includes the ‘Apocryphal’ or ‘Deuterocanonical’ books placed in their correct order among the other books of the Old Testament.


The Jerusalem Bible 978-0-232-51283-0 ÂŁ19.99 Cased Blue Cloth with Jacket 1696pp 216x130mm The Jerusalem Bible text is a version in modern English which keeps as close as possible to the literal meaning of the ancient texts from which it has been translated. Brief introductions are provided to indicate the historical setting of each book, and a number of short footnotes to clarify only the literal meaning of the text without attempting interpretation. The Jerusalem Bible first appeared in 1966 and was the work of a team of scholars (including J. R. R. Tolkien) under the direction of Father Alexander Jones, influenced by La Bible de Jerusalem - a French translation of the Bible produced by the French Biblical School in Jerusalem. It was hailed as a masterpiece of textual accuracy and modern style. This compact Popular Edition, first published in 1968, is designed for the general reader and is an excellent resource for everyone.
