“The revisions to the text made the reading experience more elegant and effortless in many places. It was a pleasure to experience renewed meaning emerge in several instances in which the text was amended from the previous iteration of the NRSV. I am confident that I will enjoy exploring this updated translation in my personal study and using it in settings of worship to draw communities of faith into the ancient texts of sacred scripture. I am deeply appreciative of the work that has gone into this effort.
