My only problem with this bible was that it wasn't in flexi binding. And now CTS have produced that I might get one. Otherwise this is a beautiful bible and a joy to use. The binding and format are attractive, durable and practical. I like the ribbons (very very useful) and I like the additional material. The introductions are helpful and the text (Jerusalem Bible) is the one I grew up with. Much as I like the NRSV, this is my "go to bible" for prayer, and I read it alongside the NRSV for study. CTS have produced a beautiful bible. OK, the New Jerusalem has been produced and NRSV, NABRE, but the Jerusalem still speaks to many of us. For lectio divina, quiet reading or reading alongside a commentary this Bible enriches my life.
