Book summary

The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) of the Christian Bible is an English translation released in 1989. It is an updated revision of the Revised Standard Version.[2] There are multiple editions of the NRSV: some Protestant, some Catholic, some with the Apocryphal/Deuterocanonical Books (these sometimes called the NRSV Common Bible), and some that use British spelling and grammar.[3] Contents 1 History 2 Principles of revision 2.1 Improved manuscripts and translations 2.2 Elimination of archaism 2.3 Gender language 3 Approval of the NRSV 4 Controversial passages 4.1 Orthodox reaction 5 Study editions 6 References 7 External links History The New Revised Standard Version was translated by the Division of Christian Education (now Bible Translation and Utilization) of the National Council of Churches. There was Jewish representation in the group responsible for the Old Testament.[2] This translation is meant to replace the Revised Standard Version, and to identify it in context with the many other English language translations available today. It is called the New Revised Standard Version because it is a revision of the Revised Standard Version of 1952. [via]
