Darton, Longman and Todd publishes three Bible translations – the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible and the New Revised Standard Version (Catholic Edition) – in a variety of study and pocket-sized editions.

The Jerusalem Bible (JB) first appeared in 1966, one of the very first Bibles to be published in accessible, contemporary English. It was hailed as a masterpiece of textual accuracy and modern style, which kept as close as possible to the meaning of the ancient texts from which it had been translated.

The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) was first published in 1985, reflecting the desire to build on the success of the Jerusalem Bible. The fresh translation from the original scriptures is accompanied by thoroughly revised study material, and incorporates changes in scholarship (since publication of the JB) as well as the fruits of two decades’ experience of using the JB in public worship.

The New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) is increasingly widely used in public worship. It offers the fruits of the best biblical scholarship in clear, readable, contemporary English. This Catholic Edition includes the ‘Apocryphal’ or ‘Deuterocanonical’ books placed in their correct order among the other books of the Old Testament.
