Users of this edition should be aware of an amendment to the end of Galatians 5.6. In the Reader's Edition this appears as: '....since in Christ Jesus whether you are circumcised or not makes no difference - what matters is faith that makes its power felt through love.' There may well be other variations from the later Reader's Edition but I haven't come across any as yet.
Most Helpful Customer Reviews on Amazon.com (beta)
Clear and concise English accurately reflects the original languages. Excellent footnotes help the reader understand references that would otherwise be invisible to modern readers. In an effort to more accurately portray the meaning from the original language, some verses are split between other verses. These are clearly labeled, but some people find this disconcerting. This edition has been out of print for some time. It is hard to find a Jerusalem Bible with the full footnotes, and you want the footnotes. People sometimes portray to The New Jerusalem Bible as a new edition of The Jerusalem Bible, but truly, it is a new translation. My preference is for the older translation.
The Bible was advertised as "used-like new condition", which was entirely accurate.
