Overview

The second half of the twentieth century produced many new versions of the Bible, One of the most notable pioneers was the NEB, distinctive in being both freshly translated from the ancient texts and officially commissioned by the majority of British churches.

The Revised English Bible with the Apocrypha is a complete and thorough revision of The New English Bible, and like its predecessor, it was translated straight into British English. Avoiding technical, over-literary, and traditionally “religious” forms of expression, it renders the Bible accessible to everyone. The result is a faithful but fluent translation, which has become popular in private study and public worship.

In the Logos edition, The Revised English Bible with the Apocrypha is fully integrated with your digital library resources. Verses link to your original language texts, preferred translations, and commentaries, enabling you to perform comprehensive word studies and enhancing your research.

  • Clear, direct, contemporary English
  • Gender-inclusive language
  • Devotional content
Care has been taken to ensure that the style of English used is fluent and of appropriate dignity for liturgical use, while maintaining intelligibility for worshippers of a wide range of ages and backgrounds.

—from the preface

Welcomed for its suitability to every reading and study need. The teams of specialists as well as ordinary people involved have produced a text of up-to-date but dignified language.

The Revised English Bible is a translation standing firmly in the tradition of The New English Bible.

The Apocrypha—a Greek word meaning “hidden things”—is composed of 15 books or fragments that exist outside the Hebrew canon. Though not part of Hebrew Scriptures, they were originally written in Hebrew, and they provide a bridge between the Old and New Testaments. They were the books included in the Latin Vulgate by St. Jerome. The REB Apocrypha, like the rest of the Revised English Bible, provides a version that’s both faithful and idiomatic, conveying a purer meaning of the original texts.

    I simply love this translation. It reads very well in both private and public settings. Only occasionally do I encounter a "Britishism."

    When it comes to choosing either the NEB or REB, I like to have REB as a hardcopy (because I don't need a dictionary quite as much). And now that Logos is introducing them both to their library, I'll be going with the NEB for Logos. The REB is my favorite when it comes to functional [aka dynamic] equivalent translations.

    What I like most about the REB is how well the poetry is rendered into English. For example, Isaiah 53:2-3: He grew up before the LORD like a young plant whose roots are in parched ground; he had no beauty, no majesty to catch our eyes, no grace to attract us to him. He was despised, shunned by all, pain-racked and afflicted by disease; we despised him, we held him of no account, an object from which people turn away their eyes.

    I gave this resource 5 stars on July 24. 2013. Now I'll write a brief review which You'll have time to read: This Bible, the 1971 RSV 66-book Bible (especially the NT and those books of the 38-book OT that were not much affected by the Qumran findings), the NETS, and to more limited degree the NRSV (the gender-neutral language plus a couple of other things severely detracting from the usefulness of it, the REB being the least radical gender-neutral Bible), are my main Bibles. NETS has not been produced by Logos. I also have the 2004 Good News Translation 3rd Edition UK-English 66-book Bible - which is the newest Edition (except a 2012 Gospel of John revised which is available on bookdepository.co.uk). I used to take note of many opinions on Bible versions. I have not yet used an amount of Gk that would be worth mentioning, but I will. I have looked at things that really matter in a Bible version. The most recent Bible portion I read was 1-2 Chronicles from the NJB and I just started to read Jeremiah today, not having read through it in English before. I will decide on a book-by-book basis which Bible version is the best in the OT - not having had time to study that the past couple of months. Being aware of that this Bible version costs some, even so I strongly recommend it! I have not yet afforded the Charlesworth Pseudepigrapha (and the collection containing the complement by Richard Bauckham and others has not yet been split up). I also have not yet afforded the new translation of most of the primary texts of "Gnosticism":

    I have a version done for the old IBM Reader platform, at the time, 1992, os/2 and DOS and IBM released the softcopy reader for Windows and Linux which can read that old format. However having in in Logo will be many times better. I do hope it will be usable on the iOS and Android platforms as well.

    I cannot wait. Once the REB hits Logos, I am done with other public translations.

    Although this is not my favorite translation, it is a good one. I ordered it so we can have it in Logos.

    This is an excellent translation, especially for devotional use. A good alternative translation. We have waited long enough...
