Jerusalem Bible
ISBN: 0385499183
EAN: 9780385499187

When it comes to Bible translations, readability and reliability are what matter; and on both counts, the original Jerusalem Bible stands alone. Reissued for the first time in over a decade, The Jerusalem Bible, Reader's Edition carries the imprimatur of the Roman Catholic Church. Hardcover.


It meets the need for a modern translation based on the most reliable ancient texts. While it avoids the archaic language of the King James Version, it still holds to the traditional (noninclusive) language that appeals to conservative Catholic and Protestant Christians.

The Jerusalem Bible, Reader's Editionis filled with several appealing features:

  • The complete canon of Holy Scripture, including the deuterocanonical books
  • An English translation that is as close as possible to the literal meaning of the ancient texts
  • Traditional, non-inclusive language
  • Brief introductions to each book that orient the reader to the historical setting
  • Limited footnotes where necessary to clarify only the literal meaning of the text
  • Portable 5 1/2" x 8 1/4" x 1 7/8" trim size
  • 8 point text
  • Single column format
  • Footnotes
  • Jacketed Hardcover
