Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - November 18, 1972, Lethbridge, Alberta 10 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD Salurday, November IB, 1972 Ecumenical movement spurs many Bible versions Hy BASIL GINdKLl. Dispatch of The Tinu'.s. Lomlim LONDON nmoiig the world's best-selling books the Bible has long held pride of plane and Ibe gnlhcrinj; mo mcnluni of I he ecumenical movement has served as a spur to those who seek a version ac- ceptable to all Christian de- nominations. Two of (he latest versions, and probably (he most import- ant in ecumenical lerms. are the Jerusalem Bible and (he Revised Standard Version. The JB, the work of Roman Catho- lic Scholars, was first publish- ed in 1966 by Darlon, Longman and Todd. who have sold three million copies per cent of them being the New Testament, 0.1 per cent (he Old. and NIC two together actoimling for the remainder. The RSV started under Prot- estant auspices 15 years earlier in America, and Collins, one of its four main publishers un- der license in Britain, reckon to have, sold over five million conies worldwide. Doth versions are now ack- knowledged far beyond denom- inational boundaries, the JB be- ing recognized for readings in the Church of England under legislalion provided by the Al- ternative Services (versions of the Bible!

MARY THE VIRGIN cflnd RECTOR: The Reverend Canon Robert W. Cowan, B A., LTn. hailed as the Unity Bible, (he first In be accepted hy Angli- cans, Roman Catholics, mid the Orthodox Churches. The new common Bible over- comes objections lo the original form of Ihc RSV which some Komnn Catholics held. These concerned the placing of the books of the Apocrypha and the notes which the Roman Catho- lic Church held to be obliga- tory. While those new versions are hound to make a powerful im- pact on Biblical studies in the years ahead it is doubtful whether they will ever replace entirely the authorized version of 1611 whose majestic language, flowing cadence, and marvel- lous style will ever be a joy to read. Bible scholars forsee the me when people will own many different Bibles but some will be for private reading and study and others will be for use in places of worship. A famous essay into Bible re- vision which has since swept the world began in 1901 when the American Standard Version was produced. It is rarely used today except in some examina- tions. This was followed by the Revised Standard Ve r s ion which made its appearance in 1052. Today it is widely used in schools throughout Britain and millions have been sold. Roman Catholics wee staunch to their Douay version and such a Bible was always kept in courts for use by Catholics when taking the oatlr. Later there came the Knox Bible, and the Confraternity Version, but Bible translation and pre- senlation was more active out- side t h c Roman Church. None of these made the impact of CENTRA!

Phillip's New Testament in Modern English (Collins, J9GO, about seven million copies sold, which many consider the best presented for private study. In IJMfi the General Asembly of the Church of Scotland in- vilcd other Churches to consid- er a revision of the Bible to pro- duce a version, true lo the tra- ditions of scholarship but ren- dered in a more up-to-date Enfilsh. This began the mam- moth task which after 20 year produced the English Bible. Seven million copies have been sold. Again from America has come the New Testament 1 n Today's English Version Good News for Modern Man to be followed in 1976 by the Old Testament inccontempor- ary language, nearly 33 million copies have been sold through- out the world. Last year was a record year for the production of scriptures, no less than Bibles were produced in Britain, and new editions in many languages were added. In association with other Bible societies the British and Foreign Bible So- ciety distributed copies over areas of the world in na- tive languages. Translation remains a contin- uing task of the Bible societies and In Europe 21 projects are being undertaken, nine of them in eastern European languages- The fact that so many Bible? are published, translated and read is a sure indication that the scriptures have an appeal that no other book has ever had.
