This is a well written and easy to read version of the bible although i found some of the translations and interpretations it contains to be either overly literal or in some cases even questionable in interpretation if not in intention. I personally didn't find this to be the best version of the bible for serious study, I prefer the N.I.V.,but as an easy to use every day bible it is hard to beat. As pointed out by a previous reviewer this bible was not translated by Federico Garcia Lorca ( Spanish poet play write and essayist)who died on August 19, 1936 and although funding was obtained in 1936 to revise the American Standard version of the bible and thus create the Revised Standard version this version was not ready for publication until February 11, 1946

The New Revised Standard Version Bible is essential as the best available translation for use in my B.A. course in Theology. So far has proved useful in studying St John's Gospel and Song of Solomon.

Although I haven't read every single passage in this Bible, I have used it for about a year for Preaching and have read all the apocrypha through it.

NRSV is apparently a very exact and precise translation of the Bible. As the quotes on the back will tell you, this New version of the Revised Standard is innovative in its solutions to the language problems of the old ones, and uses a plethora of language to illustrate the various nuances of Bible passages.
This is a good thing if you are after precision and the meaning of passages, and I'd almost say it was between the poetry of The Authorized King James Version and the economy of language of an NIV.

However it is in this broad spectrum of words, and its over-precise translation, that this version becomes stodgy and loses the Bible's famed eloquence, in favour of being precise. It reminds me of Jeremy Clarkson's criticism of a Car Manual that was 'literally translated from French' - phrases like 'S'il Vous Plait' is not literally 'Please', but it makes for better English that way.

This is not to say that this isn't a good and insightful translation, but it does display the above tendency to be over-precise.
By all means, buy this Bible for your translation collection. However remember that Bibles such as the NIV or The Message often make for easier study and, especially, better preaching material...

4 of 6 people found the following review helpful By J. Dunn on 28 July 2010
I have written on at least half a dozen occasions to Amazon to explain that there is no version of the Bible which was written by Federico Garcia Lorca and yet his name is still given as the author of the OUP version of the NSRV.

Is there anything further which can be done to get them to remove this attribution?
