They’re great photos Erik, which have persuaded me to purchase that issue, to compliment/replace my well-worn hardback copy.
You’re right about the translation being unjustly overlooked; even here in Britain it is too. I find it to be in most places an improvement on its predecessor (the NEB), especially in the Old Testament, which was unnecessarily controversial in so many of its renderings.
The REB marketing has been poor, I must sadly agree, on both sides of the Atlantic, which has not helped its adoption by either churches or individuals. Rather sad.
