The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) is a Catholic translation of the Bible published in 1985. The New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) has become the most widely used Roman Catholic Bible outside of the United States. It has the imprimatur of Cardinal George Basil Hume.

Like its predecessor, the Jerusalem Bible, the New Jerusalem Bible (NJB) version is translated "directly from the Hebrew, Greek or Aramaic." The 1973 French translation, the Bible de Jerusalem, is followed only "where the text admits to more than one interpretation." Introductions and notes, with some modifications, are taken from the Bible de Jerusalem.

Good app but......

I like the app very much but feel the following options would make it much better as the display is a little cluttered.
1. Have white background as an option
2. Have option to switch off audio controls
3. Have option to switch off verse numbers down right hand side of display

Very easy to use, a great resource

I like the app very much and find it extremely useful. I don't like the reminder to use it! 'Dear, it is time to read the Bible' for two reasons: it is a bit patronising to me ('Dear') and also it presupposes that I don't otherwise read the Bible!

Wonderful version

I have been looking for this version for a long time. Finally I have downloaded this version thank you. The icons at the top could be made clearer graphics.
