New Community Bible (Hardcover)
The New Community Bible provides a fresh, new translation of the Bible with commentaries provided by leading biblical scholars. It has clear introductions to each book and extensive notes throughout to help ensure that the biblical texts are accessible and spiritually nourishing for readers. As its name suggests, it is a community or pastoral Bible that can be read by individuals or by small groups in the absence of a biblical expert. The Psalms are included in a larger type as an aid to prayer. Features easy cross references; a compact lexicon of people, places, and events; and a thumb index.
