NRSV Thinline Update 2

According to HarperOne, the upcoming NRSV thinline, which will come in a Protestant and full Apocrypha edition in the fall, followed by a Catholic edition in 2011, will include both a concordance and maps.

Here are the specs:

- The New Revised Standard Version - the most trusted, most accepted, and most accurate English translation of the Bible available today
- The Apocryphal and Deuterocanonical books of Scripture
- Burgundy bonded leather in a 6" x 9" size
- Craft-sewn binding for added strength and long life
- Fine Bible paper to maximize readability and portability
- Easy-to-read typeface (8 pt type) in a double-column setting
- Thinline - less than 1 inch thick - makes it easy to take with you wherever you go
- Gilded edges and a ribbon marker
- Presentation page for gift-giving
- Maps to visualize the holy lands

Again, the first two versions of this thinline are due out in October.
