The New Jerusalem Bible is recognised as one of today’s most accurate, clear and modern translations, the fruit of long collaboration between leading biblical scholars. This Pocket Edition is based on the much larger Standard Edition published in 1985. The biblical text remains unchanged, but the notes and introductions to each book have been shortened, and the Index of Persons and Chronological Table simpliﬁed. A new Theological Glossary, or mini-concordance, has been added. This gives brief notes on nearly 200 key words and concepts, with references to relevant biblical passages. This handy Pocket Edition presents the New Jerusalem Bible in an easily accessible and manageable form suitable for all readers.
