Catholic readers have made The Jerusalem Bible (1966) a perennially popular study Bible. The Jerusalem-based French scholars, upon whose translation the work is based, published a revised French edition in 1973, incorpo rating recent research. General editor Wansbrough and his colleagues base The New Jerusalem Bible on this revision, though they have depended less on the French version and more on the original languages than did the English translators. They have thoroughly revised everything. The biblical text is loftier, more literal, and less colloquial. It is also less gender-specific, when this approach does not do violence to the original. A worthwhile purchase wherever the earlier edition is popular.
