Great!

This was an excellent digital copy! It was very easy to navigate, as advertised. To the person complaining that it didn't have 1 and 2 maccabees... Did you try download a free sample of this to see if it did? Because it sure does.

    Are there 3 Catholic NABs?

    Ever since the NAB-RE came out the Catholic NAB that we used in Catholic School in the 70s has been hard to find. I have a copy somewhere in the archives of boxes at home. The New Testament was revised in 1986 if memory serves me well and I do have a copy of that version which is the version that is still used in the English Lectionary at Mass in the U.S. The OT of the NAB matches the Lectionary. The OT of the NAB-RE has undergone its first revision in decades and no longer matches the Lectionary. The U.S. Bishops did not bring the OT revisions of NAB-RE into the Lectionary. The 1986 edition of NAB's NT was brought forth unchanged into the NAB-RE because the NAB-RE's NT matches the Lectionary word for word. Now we come to this Nook layout of the "NAB Catholic Edition" which to my surprise matches neither the Lectionary, the NAB we had in Catholic school nor the NAB-RE. The style of English in both Old and New Testaments is an older style like the Douay-Rheims but this NAB doesn't match Douay-Rheim's OT or NT either. I did not know of the existence of this NAB that predates the NAB we used in Catholic School. Regarding the version itself its layout with spacing between verses is very nice for the eyes. I find navigating through it to be quite easy. Unlike the experience described in some earlier reviews I find all Biblical Books present and accounted for. I wish this version had some background information on its when, where, how, why and by whom it came about. Alas, no background is given. If Nook can find this version surely it can find the NAB version of my youth and the NAB version with the 1986 NT revision. I would also welcome the Knox Bible translated by Msgr. Ronald A.Knox, a convert to Catholicism. It is said to be the best 20th Century translation, approved for liturgical use and was endorsed by Pope Pius XII and Archbishop Fulton Sheen.
