Note that this standard version does NOT include the book introductions, notes, or glossary found in the regular (larger, hardback) version. Therefore, I think the descriptive summary is misleading. It appears to be difficult to find a leather bound regular version of this translation.
The New Jerusalem Bible

To achieve the full impact of the research and that went into the production of this bible the hardback version with the expanded footnotes and the description and background of the ancient writing of the various books is needed. The hardback version is better naigated in locating referenced versus with the index tabs. Cons: Disappointing
A BEAUTIFUL BIBLE - Original, simple, unencumbered.

The bible closest to the original translation. This is important to me as I do not want an interpretation of the original intent (at least not when I'm reading it for myself or the first time). I enjoy The New Jerusaleum's simple and straight forward words. A "Catholic" Bible in that no books have been removed. I do compare with other bibles at times to and get a broader understanding. God's word has changed my life - forever! Nice size. My personalized TREASURE!
