I have used this edition of the New Testament on Cassette for over 5 years now, and still enjoy it, it is a clearly read edition with male and female readers (although there are a still a majority of it read by male voices), with background music... The NRSV like any translation has it's defects but it is without a doubt the best translation avaible today... With is't removal of archaic words, and gender incluvise language throughout the text (although God is still alway refered to in the masculine gender)... This NT provides the ability to absorb the Bible the way it was meant to be, listen to read aloud. The NRSV was begun to develope a literal translation that would become the standard for the 21st century....and while we cannot know what the feature holds it has well become the standard for this last years of the 20th...my only complaint was the fact it came in a cardboard box rather than a more durable vinyl case. I hope that soon World might get around to putting this edition on Compact Disc.
