Though they are regularly used in both Protestant and Roman Catholic congregations, the books of the Apocrypha are difficult to find in affordable English Bibles today--until now

Readers will enjoy the NRSV's contemporary, literal translation and the easy-to-read text. Churches that reference the Apocrypha in liturgy and worship will appreciate the quality and price of these outstanding editions for presentation, and outreach.

Gift & Award Bible
- A great way to honor special achievements--at a budget-conscious price

Other NRSV award Bibles on the market may look good but aren't designed to be regularly read. This handsome award Bible will withstand heavy use, thanks to its better quality paper and supple but sturdy cover material. Shipped with an attractive four-color half-wrap and shrink-wrap.

About the Translation
Translated by a multi-denominational committee, and based on the original Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic, the New Revised Standard Version is widely used by English-speaking congregations throughout the world.

About the Apocrypha
The Apocrypha is a collection of books found in the Septuagint--the Greek version of the Jewish Bible. Though not incorporated into the final, canonical version of the Hebrew scriptures, it was included in important Bible translations such as the Latin Vulgate and the original King James Version of 1611. For centuries the books of the Apocrypha have had a significant influence on Christian art, literature, and theology.

I have other imitation leather Bibles and all are excellent, but this one is the best by far. I'm amazed at the quality and attention to detail that Hendrickson has put into this Bible at such a low ... Read full review

Nice portable Bible

User Review  - Neil - Christianbook.com

Very nice, portable little Bible. It doesn't lay flat right out of the box; but it does have sewn pages/binding and bonded leather cover. Small font (which I expected). The text is not too close to the inside spine; so I can take a few notes in there. Read full review
