By adopting a more inclusive language, the NRSV-Update version offers an egalitarian representation of humanity while accurately rendering the biblical text into today’s idiomatic English. This well-choreographed and carefully performed tandem between the world-in-the text and the modern reader’s world makes this version a worthwhile read.
