The Revised New Jerusalem Bible presents anew the scholarship, character and clarity of the 1966 Jerusalem Bible and the 1985 Jerusalem Bible.
One of the most important elements of the Jerusalem Bible and the New Jerusalem Bible has been their comprehensive study footnotes and book introductions. This comprehensive Study Edition is the world’s first presentation of the full Revised New Jerusalem Bible, complete with a new set of study notes, introductions and cross-references written by Dom Henry Wansbrough, which provide context and explanation for a modern readership.
- the book of Psalms based on the text of the 2010 translation of The Revised Grail Psalms;
- ancient systems of measuring and timing have been replaced by modern, metric equivalents;
- a table of the Notes provides explanations of the key words, themes and ideas in the Bible’s major footnotes;
- a Chronological Table, Index of Persons and eight pages of full colour maps provide historical context to the Bible text
The text of the Revised New Jerusalem Bible and the accompanying footnotes have been granted the Nihil Obstat and Imprimatur of the Catholic Bishops’ Conference of England and Wales, declaring that they are considered to be free from doctrinal or moral error.
Dom Henry Wansbrough, OSB is a monk of Ampleforth Abbey and one of the foremost biblical scholars of our times.
