Customer Review

on July 1, 2012
The text is that of the Jerusalem Bible (without the politically correct inclusive language of the NJB) except for the psalms, where the Grail translation, familiar from the Divine Office, is used. The notes, though too sparse for a study bible, are exceptionally well chosen and illuminating. For example, Rebekah's offer to draw water for Abraham's servant's camels was particularly generous as they would have drunk 500 litres! There is an appendix with tables of liturgical readings, including a table of readings in the order they appear in the Bible - useful if one wants to know how much of the text is read during the year, and when. This version is easily portable but has smallish type. It would be good if the CTS produced a larger print edition for home use. This is easily the best modern Bible translation I have used.
