While this new Bible is certainly an inclusive-language translation, it is much more: it is a re-imagining of the 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 languages, they have sought new and non-sexist ways to express the same ancient truths. The Inclusive Bible 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 traditional translations of the Bible. The Inclusive Bible contains both the Old and the New Testaments.
Praise for the translation by Priests for Equality:The text reads smoothly and beautifully, betraying no other agenda than a faithful rendition.


- Anne E. Carr, University of Chicago Divinity School


 


 


Intended to free the text . . . from sexist language, gender bias, and social stereotyping [and] to allow for a full expression of contemporary spiritual struggles and changing social roles. Created with a deep respect for, and scholarly reliance on, original Hebrew and Greek texts, this translation transcends a mere substitution of pronouns and avoids hewing to any 'politically correct' line. Rather, it seeks to open the language of Scripture to interpretation and reflection by those persons, be they women or men, who wish to explore how the [Bible] can guide and inform their spiritual development or renew their faith.

Praise for the translation by Priests for Equality:These translations . . . are as poetic as they are inclusive, as lyrical as they are faithful.
