Overview

For many years Saint Mary's Press has listened to an outpouring of requests to publish a Bible for Catholic teenagers. Working with the foremost experts in education, biblical studies, and youth ministry, we have spent the last four years creating The Catholic Youth Bible. The Catholic Youth Bible has been long awaited—and there has never been a Bible like this before!

Over 650 lively articles draw on the most current biblical scholarship and combine with the New Revised Standard Version of the Bible to address the interests and real-life concerns of today's Catholic young people. The Catholic Youth Bible is designed to help adolescents and young adults:
  • answer life's important questions
  • see themselves as a vital part of God's saving work in the world
  • make connections to Catholic beliefs and traditions
  • read the Bible regularly
  • study the Bible, pray the Bible, live the Bible!
Attractively designed in two colors, The Catholic Youth Bible includes many engaging, insightful, and inspiring features:
  • introductions to important biblical people
  • background information about the culture and traditions of biblical times
  • articles that trace the biblical roots of many Catholic beliefs and practices
  • articles that share African American, Asian American, Hispanic and Latino American, and Native American cultural experiences, religious symbols, prayers, and poetry related to the Bible
  • articles that help the reader use the Bible for personal prayer
  • articles that apply the Bible's messages to relevant situations young people face now
  • over seventy two-color illustrations throughout the Bible
  • eight reading plans
  • four special indexes to events, people, and teachings; sacrament connections; life and faith issues; and article subjects
  • nine full-color maps
  • two full-color timeline of biblical and historical events
  • twenty-three full-color photographs of biblical places and multicultural images of Jesus

Student text: The Catholic Youth Bible is an outstanding resource for classroom use. It can be used alone as the primary textbook with its companion teaching manual, or it can be used in connection with a conventional textbook on the Scriptures. The Catholic Youth Bible offers the Catholic Christian perspective that is missing from other youth Bibles. Its many articles and excellent introductions make it a powerful textbook and a helpful resource for retreats and prayer services.

Teaching manual: The Teaching Activities Manual for "The Catholic Youth Bible" offers nearly 300 activities to help teachers and youth ministers use The Catholic Youth Bible as the primary textbook in Scripture courses or as a primary resource for Scripture study with youth.
