The New Jerusalem Bible: Standard Edition will satisfy the great need for an authoritative version of the greatest story ever told in a package so attractive, user friendly, and affordable, this edition is destined to become a classic. Using the same translation that has been hailed as truly magnificent ( Journal of Bible Literature ), the Standard Edition has a completely redesigned interior, set in a two-column format for easy reading. With all the best features of much more cumbersome and costly versions, this Bible is a must-have for home, church, and school.
