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.
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.
