New English Bible
The New English Bible New Testament was published in 1961 and the entire Bible in 1970 to great fanfare. Biblical scholar F.F. Bruce said enthusiastically, "To the sponsors and translators of the New English Bible the English-speaking world owes an immense debt. They have given us a version which is contemporary in idiom, up-to-date in scholarship, attractive, and at times exciting in content..." But the reception was not universally positive. In 1989, a revision was published called the Revised English Bible. Neither one has met with widespread acceptance in either Britain or America.
At one time there was a website that included the text of The New English Bible. That site was “suspended” in Spring, 2023. A spokesperson for Cambridge University Press said that the only places where the New English Bible and Revised English Bible appear digitally is through Logos Bible Software and Olive Tree Bible Software.
