is a monk of Ampleforth Abbey and one of the foremost biblical scholars of our day. Fr Henry was the translator and general editor of the NJB.
"The RNJB fulfils the pressing need for a lucid translation with
clear explanatory notes for use in public and private reading, for
instruction and for the liturgy." -- Dom Henry Wansbrough OSB
"The Revised New Jerusalem Bible is an outstanding piece of work." -- Nicholas King
"The RNJB is one of the most beautiful and poetic of all the translations of the Bible. Years ago, I read the New Jerusalem Bible and was astonished at how it brought to vivid life the stories of the Old and New Testament. One could, I discovered with delight, read them as if you were reading a well-written story. Now the RNJB improves on this by updating its scholarship and its sensitivity to subtle changes in contemporary English, and in the process introduces the Bible to a new generation of readers." -- Fr James Martin SJ, author of Jesus: A Pilgrimage, editor at large, America Magazine
