This Bible features extensive annotations providing historical and cultural context. It includes maps, a glossary, an abbreviated concordance, timelines, and various essays.
The NRSV translation continues in the tradition of the King James Bible. As described in the Preface, it accounts for the “development of biblical studies and the discovery of many biblical manuscripts,” and is “essentially a literal translation” that introduces changes “as are warranted on the basis of accuracy, clarity, euphony, and current English usage.”
