The New Revised Standard Version of the Bible, or the NRSV, first appeared in 1989 and has received wide acclaim and broadest broad support from academics and church leaders.
Unlike many of the translations available in the marketplace today, the NRSV is a literal translation. Formal equivalence (or literal translation), is a word-for-word translation of the original text. This approach allows readers who are familiar with the source language to see how meaning was expressed in the original text.
The rule of the translating committee was “As literal as possible, as free as necessary,” rendering the NRSV both a literal and elegant, readable translation. This literal focus allows the reader to do the paraphrasing and interpreting in group and individual study and in prayer.
The NRSV is also a direct descendant of the King James and RSV Bibles, passing on the richest and most influential works in the English language while thoroughly updating words, phrases, and grammar so contemporary readers will have no difficulty reading the text.
It is considered the choice translation of most reputable scholars. It is also the most ecumenical version in existence, produced by scholars representing all three branches of the Christian faith– Catholic, Protestant, and Orthodox, and accepted by virtually every Christian denomination.
Rooted in the past, but right for today, the NRSV continues the tradition of William Tyndale, the King James Version, the American Standard Version, and the Revised Standard Version. Equally important, it sets a new standard for the 21st Century.
Cokesbury offers a full variety of Bibles for study, reference, journaling, adventure bibles for kids, and many additional formats. You will also find a variety of translations such as NRSV, NIV, ESV, KJV, NKJV, NLT, and featuring the Common English Bible (CEB).
