Editor's Foreword to the Reader's Edition
"... the Bible is not only for students undergoing a formal course of study, and there has been an immediate demand for an edition of Jerusalem Bible which would bring the modern clarity of the text before the ordinary reader, and open to him the results of modern researches without either justifying them at length in literary and historical notes or linking them with doctrinal studies. For this reason, the present Reader's Edition has been prepared." [v]
