Overview

The New American Bible revised edition is more than a mere Bible translation. Authorized by the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine and approved by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, the New American Bible seeks to provide the best resource for understanding the church's sacred Scripture.

To begin with, the translation beautifully and accurately conveys the word of God in English, using the most recent scholarly resources available and translating directly from the original languages. While the Bible plays a central role in the church's life, it is also important to remember that it is an ancient book written over several centuries. It carries a rich tradition of interpretation over even more centuries.

That is why the many scholars and church teachers who worked years on this project did more than provide a clear and accessible translation; they also sought to provide additional help and guidance for those who truly want to understand what they are reading:

  • Each book of the Bible begins with an introduction, providing the historical context of the work, its literary style, its main themes, its use in the history of the church, as well as an outline of the contents.
  • As you read the Scriptures, notes have been provided at the bottom of the page offering explanations for particular passages, terms, and concepts.
  • Since Scripture often refers to itself, a system of cross-references are provided so you can see where else historical figures, particular stories, or similar concepts are also treated in the Bible.
  • At the end of the Bible, sixteen pages of color maps are provided to help orient the Bible's stories in their geographical context.

• This is an excellent Catholic Bible. • No issues with navigation in the Psalms. • Also there is a nice preface before all the books.

This is the version used in most American dioceses at Catholic Mass. Easier to understand than most.

It is the translation we hear at Sunday Mass and the footnotes are very helpful in understanding references we might not be familiar with from ancient times. I highly recommend it.

Just what I needed for my collection & reference. Love reading & studing the Bible. Glad it has every chapter as some of my studying Bibles do not. It all fits Gods plan to learn more. EDDIE D . of S.I.,N.Y.

I really enjoyed the commentary at the beginning of each book. The reference system is quite well thought out. It is like the Apologetic Study Bible. The chapter pagination could use some work though. Sometomes it is difficult to tell where the chapter begins. Overall, I enjoyed my journey through its pages.

There are no chapter headings on each page. Nor is there information on which chapter you are in if you open the navigation pane. I suggest also that the reading pane be split between the readings and the notes. Unless you already know the Bible by heart, you will find this format frustrating.
