  • Description

    THE NEW ENGLISH BIBLE WAS READ FOR THE FIRST TIME IN MANY CHURCHES THROUGHOUT BRITAIN TODAY (SUNDAY, MARCH 15TH). THE FULL TRANSLATION OF THE BIBLE HAS TAKEN 23 YEARS TO COMPLETE AND INCLUDES THE REVISED OLD TESTAMENT.

    THE NEW PUBLICATION GOES ON SALE TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC TOMORROW (MONDAY) AND ITS AIM IS TO PRESENT THE BIBLE IN THE LANGUAGE OF TODAY. EVEN SOME OF THE BEST-KNOWN PSALMS HAVE UNDERGONE REVISION, INCLUDING "THE LORD IS MY SHEPHERD."
    THE KEY TO THE NEW BIBLE LIES IN FILES CONTAINING FORTY YEARS OF RESEARCH INTO THE EARLIEST VOCABULARIES OF THE ANCIENT BIBLICAL LANGUAGES.

    WORK ON THE NEW BIBLE BEGAN IN 1946, AND THEOLOGIANS, HISTORIANS, LITERARY EXPERTS AND CHURCHMEN HAVE HELPED IN THE MASSIVE TASK OF RE-TRANSLATION.

    EVEN THE NEW TESTAMENT, PUBLISHED IN 1961, HAS AGAIN BEEN REVISED. AND ALL OF BRITAIN'S MAJOR CHRISTIAN BODIES, WITH THE EXCEPTION OF THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH, HAVE BEEN INVOLVED.
