A cost-effective and highly portable pocket edition of the Anglicized Edition New Revised Stamdard Version (NRSV), available from Collins for the first time. The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible is steadily increasing in popularity. It is highly respected among academics, including evangelicals, and used in theological colleges across the board as the most accurate translation available. It has been widely adopted across the Church of England and is in the process of being adopted for use in the Catholic liturgy. The NRSV is an accurate translation in the tradition of the King James Version, with special sensitivity to gender inclusiveness, without any loss of clarity, and retaining the traditional style of referring to God as 'He' or 'Him.' Completely reset in the highly-respected Anglicized Edition, this is the ideal Bible for personal reading, academic study, and for church use. The Compact edition is ideal for anyone wanting to read the Bible on the move or just looking for a cost-effective and handy edition.
