New Jerusalem Bible Hardcover
In 1956, scholars from L'Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem set their minds to translating the Scriptures from the original Hebrew, Aramaic, and Greek texts, hoping they could preserve the most sacred Christian traditions and stories. By 1966, the first English-language Jerusalem Bible was published. Since then it has become a favored text for lay readers and scholars alike. The accessible language and richly recounted stories, poetry, and letters in this edition is consistent with previous versions. However, this latest version stands out because of its clear format--clean double columns with easy-to-read type and quick reference headings.
- Complete Text of the Ancient Canon of Scripture
- Up-to-Date & Extensive Introductions and Notes
- Eight pages of color maps and indexes, including biblical themes, personal names, and major footnotes.
