CWN Editor's Note: Following the example of bishops in England, Wales, and India, Scotland’s bishops have adopted the Catholic Edition of the English Standard Version (published in the US as the Augustine Bible) as the basis of their new lectionary. In deciding to replace the Jerusalem Bible, the Scottish bishops cited the “accuracy, dignity, facility of proclamation, and accessibility” of the ESV.
