Book Review

NSRV New Testament and Psalms, Pocket edition

This handy little book is convenient. It fits in a pocket or purse easily. It is perfect for Bible study at the office, as we are doing on Wednesdays! Yes, you can read the Bible on your mobile phone. But do you actually read the Bible on your phone? The pages of this pocket version are smooth and crisp. The translation, the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV), is renowned for the accuracy of its translation and its inclusionary text. If you just use Google search to find a verse, who knows what translation you get. It could be one of those translations that omit the word “eunuch” from Matthew 19:12!! Finally, this version uses Anglicized English for more flavour. In all seriousness, I read this and carry it around, and you should too.
