    Anything that glorifies God

    I came here to look for a bible that is translated out of old english into something more comprehensable and something that won't lose my interest because it's so bogged down with old english. I believe this book puts it in plain, current english. As somebody mentioned - the original bible was not in english, so any english version is just as subject to criticism as the steadfast King James, etc. versions. There have been found to be many mis-translations in King James vers. as well as others. I say - anything that glorifies God's name is a welcome piece of literature.

    I use this for my classes

    The font is a bit small, but this inexpensive edition is the one I use to distribute to my RCIA classes compared to all other editions of the NAB. Sturdy and well in tact.

    SHAME

    I came looking for a replacement copy to my tattered 'Catholic' bible (old St. Joseph edition). I'm a protestant, by the way. All scholarly work is helpful provided it is done honestly. All Christians aren't, however. The reviews here leave me wondering why some people bother reading the Bible at all -any version. The King James version is wonderful if you appreciate poetry and old English. The other 'Protestant' translations are helpful, and the 'Catholic' editions have been further edifying for me as well. I could not believe the things said to one another in these 'reviews'. I felt sad for us. -Shame.

    it's the bible. period.

    postmodern gibberish? let's get one thing straight, kids: scholars have updated translations of the ancient text many times in an effort to get an english version that is as accurate as possible. unless either of you have mastered hebrew, greek, and aramaic, and have settled on your preferences as a result of that knowledge, i suggest you stop the bickering. this one is newer than the king james and is the one most often recommended in the recent years of Catholicism. leads me to believe it's closer to capturing the meaning of the original work. regardless, there's no reason to insult each other. i have a feeling God isn't too concerned with which translation you read, so long as you understand his fundamental messages.

    Contains grotesque adult content, incl. genocide, rape, slavery, torture, and child abuse... Many of these atrocious acts are commandeered by authority figures. I reccomend reading this entire book, BEFORE deciding to share it with anyone.

    Very Good Catholic Study Bible

    This is the official translation of the Bible that is used by the Catholic Church in the United States and several other English-speaking countries. The aim of this translation has been to make the Bible more accessible to the modern readers, especially in the context of liturgical use. In that respect the translation has been fairly successful: the language used is standard modern English with North American usage, most of the terminology is straightforward, and many obscure terms and references have been reworded in order to get the basic meaning across. However, this updating of the translation has come at some cost: many passages that have become familiar to the generations of English speakers in their more archaic forms have lost a lot of their punch. The language is less powerful and poetic, and lacks a lot of strength and conviction of some other translations. On several occasions the choice of words and phrases comes across as motivated more with the current political sensibilities, rather than with clear meaning of the particular passage.

    One of the best features of this edition is the ample commentaries. There is a page or two of introduction to each book of the Bible, and every page is filled with footnotes. There are in fact many pages where there are as many footnotes as there is text. This may be a bit of detraction if you are just using this Bible for devotional reading, but even then it is useful to have easy and accessible references if you come across some obscure or puzzling passage. However, the best use of this Bible is for study or small discussion groups. That's where ample references really come in handy. Furthermore, all of the footnotes and explanations are consistent both with the most current biblical scholarship and the official theological stance of the Catholic Church. Nonetheless, I feel that in some instances the commentators tend to be unduly apologetic for particular more politically incorrect passages.

    The overall quality of this book is actually pretty low: the paper is cheap, and the binding extremely fragile. If you use this book frequently, be prepared for pages to come out. This has its advantages, however, as you will probably not feel too reticent to write comments or highlight passages. This again works in favor of using this book more for study than for devotional reading.

    If you are a Catholic living in the United States or any other country that uses this Bible translation in its liturgy, I would strongly recommend getting your own copy of this wonderful book. It is a useful and necessary tool for deepening your faith in communion with your fellow believers.

    Not Cultish

    How dare you speak of the Catholic religion in that way. For thousands of years, it was the only religion in Europe. Without the Catholic Religion, Protestants wouldn't exist. Catholics are not barbarians, as they are sometimes made out to be. If you want to have 'Ye' in every one of your sentences, read the KJV, but if you enjoy modern text, read the Catholic Version.

    Postmodernist gibberish empty of soul. Go to King James for literature.
