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, it carries the Imprimatur of the Roman Catholic Church and meets the need for a modern translation based on the most reliable ancient texts. The Jerusalem Bible is 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 Introductions to each book that orient the reader to the historical setting And footnotes where necessary to clarify the literal meaning of the text. ~Hardcover. 385499183
