Yes for some parts of the Bible. It's a very important translation done by competent scholars, Caird comes to mind.

To simplify, say: Ex, Ps, Sirach, 1 Mc, much of 2 Cor 1-9, much of Gal, parts of Eph, Phil, 1 Thess.

Besides those books I'm starting to use it for all of the OT except Isaiah, Proverbs, Joshua, Judges, Samuel, Kings, Ezekiel and Daniel.

My main Bible is the NRSV, and then the NJB, the REB is probably next inline for my respect of and it's usefulness. I too really like the NEB, but I tend to be a wee bit more conservative in my handling of the Biblical texts and while I enjoy the NEB and have it on preorder, I do prefer the REB. In my opinion the REB not only updates language but corrects some questionable changes that the NEB had introduced, I find the REB poetic, flowing and a wonderful translation for reading.

That is based on the idea that one uses only Logos and no paper books or other software… I use the REB in Accordance frequently… I look forward to the day I can use it in Logos too...
