Popular, accurate and readable, the NRSV is the bible for all Catholics.
The NRSV maintains the long tradition of accurate Bible translation. It is formal enough to convey the meaning of the original Greek and Hebrew text, yet contemporary enough to meet the needs of Catholics today.
The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible is steadily increasing in popularity. It is highly respected among academics and used in theological colleges across the board as the most accurate translation available. It has been widely adopted across the Church.
The NRSV is ideal for public and private reading, for group study and for academic work.
