Large Print Bible-NRSV-Catholicby Nrsv Harpercollins
Synopses & Reviews
The NRSV has been grossly undermarketed and undersold. In our efforts to provide new and innovative editions of this beloved translation, we now introduce the XL edition. Targeting those who appreciate an easier–to–see setting, we have combined the latest trends in design with a larger print size. The NRSV XL offers beautiful and hip styling with a wonderful reading experience. No one will feel that they have been relegated to ugly and bulky larger print editions by purchasing an XL.
The New Revised Standard Version is the translation used by mainline Protestant churches, Orthodox churches, and by many Catholics. The New Revised Standard Version is recognized in scholarly circles as the most accurate translation into English of the original Hebrew and Greek texts. In the tradition of its predecessors, the King James Version and the Revised Standard Version, the NRSV was designed to be the "standard" version for English–speaking people across all denominations, which in many ways it has become. None of the new, more sectarian translations have approached its standards of elegance and accuracy.
Overall, this special easy–to–read large print setting makes the Bible a wonderful reading experience. It also includes a concordance index to help people find key passages.
This special Catholic edition includes all 73 books of the Catholic canon.
“The best, contemporary translation of the Bible…an obvious must for every Catholic household.” —James Martin, S.J., author of The Jesuit Guide to (Almost) Everything
