This is still one of the best, the most elegant, the most easy-to-read, modern translations into English of the Bible.

So, please, dear Cambridge University Press, why no Kindle version of it?

It can't be that difficult to repackage it for Kindle, surely.

Plus Apocrypha, please.

The Revised English Bible is an excellent translation. It is accurate and of high literary quality, making it an extremely enjoyable read. I highly recommend and commend this translation as being one of the very best English language Bibles ever.

This is an excellent update of the New English Bible. (search for 'Bible: New English Bible' since Amazon's product link does not work) although that former translation is a classic in its own right. Both editions make readable and understandable books without falling over themselves to be politically or theologically correct. The small sketches by Knowles make the first book even more friendly. In general usage they are now both overtaken I suppose by the NRSV bible but both these predecessors remain very readable without straining to be 'absolutely right'.
