King James Version Apocrypha. Readers Edition
The Apocrypha ("hidden things") is that collection of books included in the Greek Septuagint translation of the Hebrew Bible, or in the Latin Vulgate translation. While these books are not part of the Hebrew text that forms the canon for Judaism and Protestant Christianity, they are regarded as canonical by several Christian traditions. Additionally, scholars have pronounced the Apocrypha to be of great value in understanding the times between the Old and New Testaments and the place of Judaism in the Hellenistic and Roman periods.

The deuterocanonical books consist of such genres as wisdom literature, historical stories, histories, devotional writings, letters, and even apocalyptic material. Included are 1 Esdras; 1 & 2 Maccabees; Tobit; Judith; Esther (Greek); Song of the Three Young Men; Susanna; Bel and the Dragon; Wisdom of Solomon; Wisdom of Jesus, Son of Sirach (Ecclesiasticus); Baruch; Letter of Jeremiah; Prayer of Manasseh; and 2 Esdras.

The Apocrypha is used by the Anglican, Eastern Orthodox, Lutheran, Methodist, and Roman Catholic traditions.

Campbell, G.
The Holy Bible. Quatercentenary Edition. King James Version, 1611 Text
This 400th anniversary edition of the King James Version of the Bible is a reprint of the 1611 text, in an easy-to-read roman font instead of the black-letter type of the original. The original capital letters, many of which are pictoral, have been restored to each chapter in order to replicate the visual appeal of the early editions. The 1611 text is followed page-for-page and line-for-line, and all misprints are reproduced rather than corrected. The large body of preliminary matter, which includes genealogies, maps, and lists of readings, is also included. The text of the 1611 edition differs from modern editions of the King James Version in thousands of details, and this edition is the most authentic version of the original text that has ever been published. The volume concludes with an essay by Gordon Campbell on the first edition of the King James Bible.

Clark Kroeger, C. & M. J. Evans
The Womens Study Bible: New Living Translation/NLT
The majority of Biblical commentary available to readers today is written from the perspective of white, Western, classically educated men. And while this perspective is valid and valuable, it is necessarily partial.
The Women's Study Bible, edited by Catherine Clark Kroeger and Mary J. Evans, seeks to redress this imbalance. The annotations and articles collected here don't simply look at passages about women. They look at all of Scripture from a woman's perspective, exploring questions that have special relevance for women. How does Scripture speak to women as they give birth and breast-feed, bandage and console, survive intolerable conditions, hold high office, and contemplate both shattered hopes and dreams fulfilled? What was daily life like for women in Biblical times? How do women represented in the Bible speak to women--and men--today? Each biblical book is accompanied by an introduction that lays out dating, authorship, and other historical information, as well as the larger themes of the book--both those specific to women and those that have a broader relevance. Helpful running annotations give more specifics, paying particular attention to the many women who appear in the Bible, highlighting passages that specifically address women and women's issues, and clarifying lessons that women might draw from more general passages. This edition uses the New Living Translation, an easy-to-read translation that employs gender-inclusive language. It also includes New Oxford Bible Maps, extensive back matter, as well as a helpful index to women in the Bible.
Written from a faith perspective by a wide range of both male and female scholars from around the world and from different denominational backgrounds, these study tools offer all readers a wealth of information and guidance.

The Vulgate Bible, Volume 3, The Poetical Books, Douay-Rheims Translation
Latin - english, Douay-Rheims Translation.

This is the third volume of a projected six-volume set of the complete Vulgate Bible. Compiled and translated in large part by Saint Jerome at the turn of the fifth century CE, the Vulgate Bible permeated the Western Christian (and later specifically Catholic) tradition from the early medieval period through the twentieth century. It influenced literature, visual arts, music, and education during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and its contents lay at the heart of Western theological, intellectual, artistic, and even political history during that period. At the end of the sixteenth century, as Protestant vernacular Bibles became available, professors at a Catholic college first at Douay, then at Rheims, translated the Vulgate Bible into English, primarily to combat the influence of rival theologies. Volume III presents the Poetical Books of the Bible. It begins with Job's argument with God, and unlike other Bibles the Vulgate insists on the title character's faith throughout that crisis. The volume proceeds with the soaring and intimate lyrics of the Psalms and the Canticle of Canticles. Three books of wisdom literature, all once attributed to King Solomon, also are included: Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, and Wisdom. Ecclesiasticus, a work of wisdom literature no longer considered authentically biblical, concludes the volume. The seven Poetical Books mark the third step in a thematic progression from God's creation of the universe, through his oversight of grand historical events, and finally into the personal lives of his people.

At the end of the sixteenth century, professors at a Catholic college first at Douay, then at Rheims, translated The Vulgate Bible into English to combat the influence of Protestant vernacular Bibles. Volume IV presents the writings attributed to the "major" prophets (Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, and Daniel), which feature dire prophecies of God's impending judgment, punctuated by portentous visions. Yet profound grief is accompanied by the promise of mercy and redemption, a promise perhaps illustrated best by Isaiah's visions of a new heaven and a new earth. In contrast with the Historical Books, the planned salvation includes the gentiles.

The Vulgate Bible, Volume 5, The Minor Prophetical Books and Maccabees, Douay-Rheims Translation
This is the fifth volume of a projected six-volume Vulgate Bible.

Latin - english, Douay-Rheims Translation.

Compiled and translated in large part by Saint Jerome at the turn of the fifth century ce, the Vulgate Bible permeated the Western Christian tradition through the twentieth century.

At the end of the sixteenth century, professors at a Catholic college first at Douay, then at Rheims, translated the Vulgate Bible into English to combat the influence of Protestant vernacular Bibles. Volume V presents the twelve minor prophetical books of the Old Testament, as well as two deuterocanonical books, 1 and 2 Maccabees.

While Jewish communities regarded the works of the twelve minor prophets as a single unit (the Dodecapropheton), the Vulgate Bible treats them individually in accordance with Christian tradition. The themes of judgment and redemption featured prominently in the major prophets (Volume IV) are further developed by the minor prophets. The books of 1 and 2 Maccabees conclude the volume. Their doctrinal controversies and highly influential martyrdom narratives anticipate the development of Christian hagiography both as a genre and as a theological vehicle.

The Vulgate Bible, Volume 1, The Pentateuch, Douay-Rheims Translation
Latin - english, Douay-Rheims Translation.

This is the first volume of the projected six-volume set of the complete "Vulgate Bible". "The Vulgate Bible", compiled and translated in large part by Saint Jerome at the intersection of the fourth and fifth centuries CE, was used from the early Middle Ages through the twentieth century in the Western European Christian (and, later, specifically Catholic) tradition. Its significance can hardly be overstated. The text influenced literature, visual art, music, and education during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and its contents lay at the heart of much of Western theological, intellectual, artistic, and even political history of that period. At the end of the sixteenth century, as a variety of Protestant vernacular Bibles became available, professors at a Catholic college first at Douay, then at Rheims, translated the Vulgate into English, among other reasons to combat the influence of rival theologies. This volume elegantly and affordably presents the text of the Pentateuch, the first five books of the Bible, beginning with the creation of the world and the human race, continuing with the Great Flood, God's covenant with Abraham, Israel's flight from Egypt and wanderings through the wilderness, the laws revealed to Moses, his mustering of the twelve tribes of Israel, and ending on the eve of Israel's introduction into the Promised Land.

This is the second volume, in two parts, of a projected six-volume set of the complete Vulgate Bible. Compiled and translated in large part by Saint Jerome at the turn of the fifth century CE, the Vulgate Bible was used from the early medieval period through the twentieth century in the Western Christian (and later specifically Catholic) tradition. It influenced literature, visual arts, music, and education during the Middle Ages and Renaissance, and its contents lay at the heart of Western theological, intellectual, artistic, and even political history during that period. At the end of the sixteenth century, as Protestant vernacular Bibles became available, professors at a Catholic college first at Douay, then at Rheims, translated the Vulgate Bible into English, primarily to combat the influence of rival theologies. Volume II presents the Historical Books of the Bible, which tell of Joshua's leading the Israelites into the Promised Land, the judges and kings, Israel's steady departure from God's precepts, the Babylonian Captivity, and the return from exile. The focus then shifts to shorter, intimate narratives: the pious Tobit, whose son's quest leads him to a cure for his father's blindness; Judith, whose courage and righteousness deliver the Israelites from the Assyrians; and Esther and Mordecai, who saved all the Jews living under Ahasuerus from execution. These three tales come from books that were canonical in the Middle Ages but now are often called "apocryphal," with the partial exception of the Book of Esther.

The Vulgate Bible, Volume 6: The New Testament, Douay-Rheims Translation
Latin - english, Douay-Rheims Translation

This volume completes the six-volume Vulgate Bible. Compiled and translated in large part by Saint Jerome at the turn of the fifth century ce, the Vulgate Bible permeated the Western Christian tradition through the twentieth century. It influenced literature, art, music, and education, and its contents lay at the heart of Western theological, intellectual, artistic, and political history through the Renaissance. At the end of the sixteenth century, professors at a Catholic college first at Douay, then at Rheims, translated the Vulgate Bible into English to combat the influence of Protestant vernacular Bibles. Volume VI presents the entirety of the New Testament. The gospel narratives delineate the story of Jesus's life, death, and resurrection. Acts continues the account of the first Christians, including the descent of the Holy Spirit, the conversion of Saul of Tarsus (the Apostle Paul), and the spread of Christianity through sermons and missionary journeys. Collected epistles answer theological and pragmatic concerns of early church communities. Of these epistles, Romans is notable for its expression of Paul's salvation theory, and Hebrews for its synthesis of Jewish and Hellenistic elements. The apocalyptic vision of Revelation concludes the volume with prophecies grisly and glorious, culminating in the New Jerusalem.

Law, P.
Testament: The Bible Odyssey
is a unique distillation of the whole biblical corpus. It enables readers to grasp the entire sweep of the Old Testament story as though reading a novel; to reflect on the sublime poetry of the book of the Psalms; to ponder the timeless spiritual advice of the Wisdom writings; and to marvel at the amazing visions of Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel and the other prophets. Testament also includes all the teachings of Jesus, arranged under helpful headings, along with the most powerful and memorable episodes from the four Gospels and Acts of the Apostles. The major letters of St Paul and the other apostolic writers follow, culminating with the vivid apocalyptic visions of the book of Revelation. Testament will appeal to readers of all ages and religious backgrounds - especially to those who may be curious to know what makes the Bible the world's all-time bestseller, a classic of world literature, and probably still the most influential book in print-but simply don't have time to read the entire text from beginning to end.

Levine, Amy-Jill, Marc Zvi Brettler (eds)
The Jewish Annotated New Testament
Although major New Testament figures--Jesus and Paul, Peter and James, Jesus' mother Mary and Mary Magdalene--were Jews, living in a culture steeped in Jewish history, beliefs, and practices, there has never been an edition of the New Testament that addresses its Jewish background and the culture from which it grew--until now. In The Jewish Annotated New Testament, eminent experts under the general editorship of Amy-Jill Levine and Marc Z. Brettler put these writings back into the context of their original authors and audiences. And they explain how these writings have affected the relations of Jews and Christians over the past two thousand years. An international team of scholars introduces and annotates the Gospels, Acts, Letters, and Revelation from Jewish perspectives, in the New Revised Standard Version translation. They show how Jewish practices and writings, particularly the Greek translation of the Hebrew Bible, influenced the New Testament writers. From this perspective, readers gain new insight into the New Testament's meaning and significance. In addition, thirty essays on historical and religious topics--Divine Beings, Jesus in Jewish thought, Parables and Midrash, Mysticism, Jewish Family Life, Messianic Movements, Dead Sea Scrolls, questions of the New Testament and anti-Judaism, and others--bring the Jewish context of the New Testament to the fore, enabling all readers to see these writings both in their original contexts and in the history of interpretation.

Norton, D. (ed)
New Cambridge Paragraph Bible King James Version : Personal Size
Edited by David Norton, this important scholarly edition presents a revised KJV text based on a thorough evaluation of textual variants in current renderings as well as the surviving notes of the 1611 Translators. The text itself is presented in paragraph form, with marginal notes, and adopts modern conventions of spelling and punctuation to make it easy to read and use. The New Cambridge Paragraph Bible was originally published in 2005 in a large format and, like the original King James Bible and successive editions until the nineteenth century, included the Apocrypha. As it has become known in the marketplace, a demand has become apparent for this Bible in a smaller, more manageable format. It is therefore now being issued in Personal Size editions, either with or without the Apocrypha. This particular Bible contains just the Old and New Testaments and comes in hardback. A luxury edition is also available.

Pietersma, A. & B.G. Wright (eds)
A New English Translation of the Septuagint
The Septuagint (the ancient Greek translation of Jewish sacred writings) is of great importance in the history of both Judaism and Christianity. The first translation of the books of the Hebrew Bible (plus additions) into the common language of the ancient Mediterranean world made the Jewish scriptures accessible to many outside Judaism. Not
only did the Septuagint become Holy Writ to Greek speaking Jews but it was also the Bible of the early Christian communities: the scripture they cited and the textual foundation of the early Christian movement.
Translated from Hebrew (and Aramaic) originals in the two centuries before Jesus, the Septuagint provides important information about the history of the text of the Bible. For centuries, scholars have looked to the Septuagint for information about the nature of the text and of how passages and specific words were understood.
For students of the Bible, the New Testament in particular, the study of the Septuagint's influence is a vital part of the history of interpretation. But until now, the Septuagint has not been available to English readers in a modern and accurate translation. The New English Translation of theSeptuagint fills this gap.

The Inclusive New Testament
While The Inclusive New Testament is certainly an inclusive-language translation, it is much more: it is a re-imagining of the Christian scriptures and our relationship to them. Not merely replacing male pronouns, the translators have rethought what kind of language has built barriers between the text and its readers. Seeking to be faithful to the original Greek, they have sought new and non-sexist ways to express the same ancient truths. The Inclusive New Testament is a fresh, dynamic translation into modern English, carefully crafted to let the power and poetry of the language shine forth-particularly when read aloud-giving it an immediacy and intimacy rarely found in translations of the Bible. The Inclusive New Testament is also available together with The Inclusive Psalms or as a part of The Inclusive Bible.

The Inclusive Psalms
The poetry of the Psalms echoes through the ages. The translators of The Inclusive Psalms had to reckon not only with the original Hebrew text of the Psalms, but the wide-ranging translations of these songs that have become so familiar. As with The Inclusive New Testament, their work allows the power of the ancient writings to be present to all contemporary readers. The Inclusive Psalms a wholly included in The Inclusive Hebrew Scriptures: Volume III: The Writings. They are also available together with The Inclusive New Testament.
