Useful Update of New English Bible 10 Jan. 2004
By Gontroppo - Published on Amazon.com
The Revised English Bible is a useful one to have, partly because it translates freshly, and does not slavishly follow the traditions established by Wyclif, Tyndale, the King James, Revised Standard Version, etc.
The use of inclusive language is cautious and the translators are not squeamish about using masculine pronouns occasionally.
But the language used is not the language people speak: at least not here in Australia! At times it sounds quite stilted and unnecessarily formal.
If you liked the New English Bible, I think you will find that this one is a big improvement. There is not as much conjectural emendation in the Old Testament, and the translators are less inclined to move the text around, as was done in translations by Moffat and the NEB.
It is well worth getting a copy for the fresh approach.

The Revised English Bible was in excellent condition. This translation is easier to understand since it translates by paragraph/sentence rather than word by word. This results in expressions that we are more familiar with.

REB 7 Aug. 2005
By T. Lentz - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Not as readable as the NIV or TNIV, this translation is still a bit more dynamic and functional than the Living Bible or the Message--which are both paraphrases (free translations). I use this Great Britain translation to compare with and contrast against other versions (translations) when I am studying passages in the Bible. Because it more functional and not as formal as the NKJ or NASB, it is easier to read than these literal translations. It is a good 4th or 5th Bible to use for studying purposes. I also use the NASB, the Message, and the NRSV during these studies.
