The Jerusalem Bible first appeared in 1966 and was the work of a team of scholars (including J. R. R. Tolkien) using the resources of the French Biblical School in Jerusalem. It was hailed as a masterpiece of textual accuracy and modern style, which kept as close as possible to the meaning of the ancient texts from which it had been translated. This abridged edition has removed some of the introduction and footnotes from the original edition which was intended for Biblical scholars, rendering the text easier to access for the layman.
