About "Reb Text Edition Green With Jacket"
This text Bible uses the British-initiated Revised English Bible translation and complements the REB with Apocrypha already published by Cambridge. Like its NRSV cousin, it will be an excellent basic Bible for churches and schools, particularly those who prefer a distinctively British idiom.
First published in 1989, the Revised English Bible is a complete revision of the New English Bible and is widely used in churches throughout the UK. This practical hardback includes just the Old and New Testaments. Its page numbers match the Cambridge REB Lectern Bibles, so it makes an excellent pew Bible.
The REB updates The New English Bible, retaining the latter's elegant literary style, but removing its archaisms. The REB employs a modest amount of inclusive language (e.g. 'brothers and sisters' for 'brothers') and is good for public reading. Like the NEB before it, the REB is a British translation, sponsored by all the main Christian denominations. This hardback includes just the Old and New Testaments and the page numbers match the Cambridge REB Lectern Bibles, so the hardback makes an excellent pew Bible.
