I am wondering if anyone on FE uses the New English Bible translation for personal/devotional reading? Here is some info about the NEB: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/New_English_Bible

I had never heard of this translation before chancing upon it at a used bookstore. Reading through some of it, the prose sort of reminds me of the Jerusalem Bible (1966), minus the copious footnotes. It also includes the Deuterocanonical books but they are still labelled as "Apocrypha" and sit in between the OT and NT.
Growing up, it's all I knew of. We had the Douay Rheims and the New English. It's not a bad translation either, I still prefer it because of the familiarity.
