The Catholic Public Domain Version has certain advantages in comparison with other English language translations of the Bible.

1) The CPDV is a Roman Catholic translation. Most of the many English language versions of the Bible available today are Protestant versions. This specifically Roman Catholic translation makes the Roman Catholic understanding of the text more easily accessible to the Catholic reader.

2) The CPDV is written in modern English. Some Catholic versions of the Bible, such as the Douay-Rheims version, are good translations, but they are difficult to understand because the English language has changed through the centuries.

3) The CPDV is a translation based on the Latin Scriptural tradition. The CPDV attempts to continue this separate Latin Scriptural tradition, without in any way detracting from other essential Scriptural traditions based on Hebrew, Greek, Aramaic, and other languages.

4) The CPDV carefully avoids so-called inclusive language. The CPDV rejects inclusive language, instead translating each noun that refers to human persons in accordance with the gender and number of the source text. The word meaning ‘sons’ is translated as ‘sons’; the word meaning ‘brothers’ is translated as ‘brothers’; and so on.

5) The CPDV rejects the idea that scholarship should take precedence over faith. Some scholars do not think that the Old Testament should be translated or interpreted in the light of the New Testament, or even that the whole Bible should be translated or interpreted in the light of Faith. On the contrary, the CPDV seeks to clarify the Christian and specifically Roman Catholic meanings found throughout the entire Bible.

6) The CPDV attempts to conform to the Norms for the Translation of Biblical Texts for Use in the Liturgy, as promulgated by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith when that office was under the leadership of then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (now Pope Benedict XVI). The CPDV is intended to be used in study, personal prayer and reflection, Scriptural interpretation and commentary, as well as in liturgical services.

    GREAT BIBLE BUT

    Hi everyone, this is a great bible when it wants to work. Easy to read and understandable with modern english. But while I was reading Genesis it began to freeze and became un~responsive. I would have to force close the book and try again, which sometimes would help but most of the time didnt. For ?.99 I guess you get what you pay for. Those that may be saying that its my nook...every other book on my nook worked but this one.

    ...Canon law requires new Catholic bible versions to have an imp

    ...Canon law requires new Catholic bible versions to have an imprimatur. I don't think this one does. It shouldn't be given the label of catholic since the translator isn't following church law.

    Best e-Bible yet.

    This is a great Bible, though sometimes it is slow in skipping through the books and chapters.

    Okay

    This version is okay -- better than some of the others I've seen. The MichaelMedia (also called Generation Press? I think) version was easiest. This is decent thought.
