Translation recommendations

I'm a Liberal Jewish student of English Literature, and I've decided the time has finally come for me to get a decent translation of the Bible - and the entire Bible, please, Apocrypha and all. At the moment I'm using the KJV, which has its merits and is useful if you look at the literary canon, but accuracy is not its strong point. What would you recommend as a good, literal translation that doesn't have a Christian axe to grind? I'm currently eyeing the New Oxford Annotated Bible with the Apocrypha.
