Thanks to reader Devin for alerting me that the RNJB is now available from Darton, Longman, and Todd (DLT). Book Depository still lists July 29th as the projected date when they will have the RNJB in stock.

Now that the Old Testament portion of the RNJB has been released, Fr. Neil Xavier O’Donoghue has published a quick comparison between the Jerusalem Bible (JB), the English Standard Version (ESV), and the RNJB for all three lectionary readings for this Sunday (the 16th Sunday in Ordinary Time). Check out his post over at Pray Tell Blog!

Fr. Neil also published an article in the Tablet on the RNJB vs. the ESV. This article requires a free registration to view in full.

  1. I just received an email from Book Depository this Thursday morning which said:
    “Your pre-order has been released by the publisher and is on its way to our warehouse. Your order will be dispatched from our warehouse soon, and we’ll let you know once it’s on its way to you. Your items and delivery address are below, if these details have changed, please contact our Customer Service Team. ”
    So I presume it might actually be sent out by the July 29 date the Book Depository website has been saying for a while.
    And Devin is definitely correct in that the DLT website itself now lets you order directly from their website. I had noticed that too sometime in the past week or so.
    Anyhow, when RNJB does arrive in the 5-8 business days from being dispatched which would mean
    they’d arrive by Thursday, August 8, I’ll be glad to take cellphone pictures of desired passages and email them to Marc and he can post them.
