I read the entire Bible for 2 courses I took in college--Old Testament studies and New Testament studies. Having taken both Biblical Greek and Hebrew, I feel that this translation is one of the most accurate that exists, along with the Knox Bible.

"The first truly modern Bible for Catholics."

Translators include... J.R.R. Tolkien? What?

Well, I know what translation of the Bible I'm reading next!

The description given by Goodreads gives the context. Given that it is a Roman Catholic translation, it betrays that in a number of ways. For one example, there is the influence of the Vulgate, particularly in theological terminology. In the sacrificial sections, where most people would expect to see "burnt offering" (even the New American Bible, which is sort of the Roman Catholic equivalent of the RSV, uses "burnt offering") the JB uses "holocaust," which comes from Greek through Latin.

(For my overall thoughts read my comments on the NIV bible.)

Be sure to get the original, not the more recently made printings, especially the 'New Jerusalem' bible. Primarily because I have found this particular translation to be fluid in its prose, graceful in its poetry, and as comprehensive as can be had in a one volume translation of the entire christian scriptures.

If I could have one bible translation, this would be it.

For a scholarly bible, this is my go-to translation. I find the notes trustworthy -- informational, neutral, not commentary on the content; and the translation reads well (famous for Tolkien's input: only one book I'm afraid, Jonah. Still, his employment displays their commitment to style). I'm happy to work with this and the King James.

This, the scholarly version of The Jerusalem Bible, the one with all the side- and footnotes, is the first translation of the bible I read from cover to cover. I did this while enrolled in Chaplain Dennis Haas' two-semester sequence on the Hebrew and Christian Scriptures at Grinnell College. Later, in the nineties, while at the Institute of Pastoral Studies at Loyola University Chicago, I purchased The New Jerusalem Bible, giving my older version away.

First read this, when working with children, at Youth Club. Easy to understand text & a great "read it through'" Bible. It does have additional books not included in my other Bibles - interesting!

This was the second Bible I read from cover to cover. (The first was the RSV.) It's a lively but not overly colloquial translation. Having the verse numbers in the margin makes it much easier to read.
