    "A wider circulation of this very helpful translation can only serve to improve our Biblical literacy. This is an enterprise worthy of support."


    - Peter J. Gomes, Harvard University, author of The Good Book
    "Im glad to have a variety of translations available for Bible reading - but when I want to do serious Bible study, I always consult the NRSV. It avoids the theological prejudice I sense in some translations, drawing from a broadly ecumenical group of top-notch scholars."


    - Brian McLaren, author of A New Kind of Christian
    "Ever since it was first published, I have recommended it to students as the most reliable English translation for study purposes, and as the best for public reading in church."


    - Marcus Borg, author of The Heart of Christianity
    "I view the NRSV translation to be the finest English Bible we have today. Its scholarship is impeccable. The English is accurate, approachable, and readable. It is excellent for both public and private use. I recommend it highly."


    - Richard J. Foster, author of Celebration of Discipline
    "My very first Bible, that I received as a child, was the RSV. Now, the NRSV is the Bible that I use everyday for study and devotional reading. The NRSV is completely trustworthy in all its translation. It is not only exactingly correct but also beautifully stated. Here is Gods word made fresh and accessible for our age."


    - William H. Willimon, Bishop, the North Alabama Conference of the United Methodist Church, and Visiting Professor, Duke Divinity School
    "The NRSV is indispensible for serious study of the Bible. Over and over again, it powerfully illuminates the more difficult passages in the beautiful King James and the Douay-Rheims Versions. A joy to read."


    - Anne Rice, author of Christ the Lord
    "The best, simply the best."


    - John Dominic Crossan, author of The Historical Jesus
    "The NRSV is an accurate literate, engaging, and thoughtful translation of Scripture. May it be widely used!"


    - John Ortberg, author of If You Want to Walk on Water, Youve Got to Get Out of the Boat
    "The NRSV is invaluable to me in both my private study and my professional work because, more than any other English translation, it allows me to capture the ancient nuances of scripture in the rhythms and context of present time."


    - Phyllis Tickle, author of The Divine Hours
    "The NRSV is one of the outstanding modern translations of the biblical text. Its commitment to using inclusive language as regards humans is a major breakthrough in Bible translation. Its identification and labeling through notes of ancient Cush with Nubia helps in the recovery of African backgrounds to the text. Finally, its translation of Song 1:5 as I am black and beautiful corrects centuries of white supremacist translations of this verse."


    - Randall C. Bailey, Andrew W. Mellon Professor of Hebrew Bible, Interdenominational Theological Center
    "A good translation of the Bible is one that doesnt sound like something printed in double columns on India paper but like this mornings edition of The New York Times. Surprisingly often that is how the NRSV sounds to me."


    - Frederick Buechner, author of Beyond Words and Secrets in the Dark
    "The NRSV beautifully balances scholarly faithfulness to the Hebrew and Greek text with the need for an up-to-date and readable English translation. The painstaking work of ecumenical teams of biblical scholars working over many years has resulted in a reliable, gender inclusive translation that I use in personal study, college and divinity school teaching as well as worship."


    - Rev. Charles Kimball, Professor of Comparative Religion, Wake Forest University
    "The Bible I use on the stump is the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV). Its literally my favorite translation, both for study and for preaching. I am a Bible thumper and the Bible I thump is the NRSV."


    - Jim Wallis, author of Gods Politics: Why the Right Gets It Wrong and the Left Doesnt Get It
    "The NRSV is one of the premier translations of the Bible; indeed, it has been a standard for all others. It continues to deserve the widest circulation and use among scholars, students, and general readers alike."


    - Rev. Richard P. McBrien, Crowley-OBrien Professor of Theology, University of Notre Dame and author of Catholicism
    "For many years the NRSV has been my standard biblical text both for daily use and for quotation in my books. I particularly appreciate its careful fidelity to the original texts."


    - John Polkinghorne, author of Belief in God in an Age of Science
    "I have used the HarperCollins Study Bible for literature classes and for my private prayer. The NRSV translation is outstanding."


    - Ron Hansen, Professor of English, Santa Clara University
    "When I need a citation from the New Testament that will be readable and reliable, I always turn to the NRSV."


    - Rabbi Harold Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
    "The NRSV is the most honest, accurate, and legible version of the Bible that I have come across."


    - Matt Semanek, Youth Minister, Alive in Christ
    "I have used the RSV and NRSV with great success in my classes here at Harvard. This is the best edition available (in English) if one wants to know what the Bible really says."


    - Harvey Cox, author of When Jesus Came to Harvard
    "In public worship, the NRSV is the Bible I always use. In personal study, it is the version I begin with. Why? In part, yes, because of its use of inclusive language. When the NRSV was first published and I began reading it, I suddenly found other versions exclusiveness as to gender jarring to the senses. Equally important are the superior quality of the NRSV in its faithfulness to the oldest available texts and the sheer beauty of its translation of those texts. The NRSV is quite simply the finest English translation of the Bible to date."


    - Rev. Dr. Stan Hastey, Executive Director, Alliance of Baptists
    "The NRSV is my principal translation for Bible study, sermon writing, and worship leadership. I use it with the confidence that it reflects the highest scholarship and with the joy of knowing that it is embraced by a broad ecumenical community of churches."


    - John H. Thomas, General Minister and President, United Church of Christ
