The Bible in the English language is among the great achievements of all time, not only as a masterpiece of inspired writing but as a witness to the place of the Scriptures in the life of the English-speaking peoples, and Bruce's work, recognised for 30 years as the best on its subject, documents its history and shows the impact of some of the translations on the use and development of the English language. Formerly The English Bible, this comprehensive study of the various English translations of the Bible is again available in paperback. The author traces the story from the earliest partial translations in Saxon times, through Wycliffe, Tyndale and The King James Version, to the publication of such contemporary versions as The New English Bible, The New American Standard Version, The Living Bible, and The Good News Bible. Authoritative and highly readable, this remains one of the standard works on its subject.

Revised and condensed from David Norton's acclaimed A History of the Bible as Literature, this book, first published in 2000, tells the story of English literary attitudes to the Bible. At first jeered at and mocked as English writing, then denigrated as having 'all the disadvantages of an old prose translation', the King James Bible somehow became 'unsurpassed in the entire range of literature'. How so startling a change happened and how it affected the making of modern translations such as the Revised Version and the New English Bible is at the heart of this exploration of a vast range of religious, literary and cultural ideas. Translators, writers such as Donne, Milton, Bunyan and the Romantics, reactionary Bishops and radical students all help to show the changes in religious ideas and in standards of language and literature that created our sense of the most important book in English.

The New Testament of the New English Bible was first published in 1961 with a complete text available from 1970. This translation was the first to render the scriptures into contemporary English and to depart from the traditional linguistic style of the Authorized Version. Over the years thetranslation has come to be regarded as a classic text and it became a best-seller in many countries around the world. In 1989 its successor, the Revised English Bible, was published to great acclaim but there remain a significant number of readers who favour the NEB. This stunning edition - featuring the well-known line drawings by Horace Knowles - reintroduces the much-loved NEB text back into the Oxford listafter an absence of nearly two years.

This is an examination of six major new versions, the New International Version, (NIV); New American Standard Bible, (NASB); New Revised Standard Version, (NRSV); Revised English Bible, (REB); Good News Bible, (GNB); and the New American Bible, (NAB). It includes: 1) The textual basis of the above new versions; 2) 379 New Testament verses in which the above new versions are compared with the Greek of the Received Text, and the weak evidence that is back of their adulterations; 3) a 200-page examination of the New International Version (NIV) shows that they have added over 100,000 of their own words, and have failed to translate over 20,000 of the original words; 4) a separate examination of the New American Standard Bible (NASB). There are 8 appendices, including a thorough critique of Kurt Aland's Text of the New Testament. Get acquainted with the facts, for God is going to look to you to warn his people that these new versions are adulterated with many of the heresies of the Gnostics and others. Also, since they all contain contradictions within themselves, and also contradict one another, love for your fellow saints should require you to let them know that the words they are reading are not all God's words. Jay P. Green, Sr. (1918-2008) is Translator and Editor of The Interlinear Hebrew-Greek-English Bible and the translator of the Modern King James Version of the Holy Bible, The Teenage Version of the Holy Bible, and the Literal translation of the Holy Bible. He has written numerous books on textual criticism.
