Overview

Grow in faith together!

The NRSV Catholic Faith and Family Bible is designed to make the Bible easier to read and understand, helping you and your family grow in faith together as you discover God’s message for your life today. Instead of being tucked away on a bookshelf, this Bible will find a place throughout the house—at the dinner table as part of family prayer, on the living room coffee table as part of family discussion, on your bedside table as a source of inspiration and solace, and in your teen’s room for learning and guidance.

Renowned for its beautiful balance of scholarship and readability, the NRSV faithfully serves the Church in personal spiritual formation and in the academy. The foremost Bible translation vetted by Protestant, Catholic, Orthodox, Evangelical, and Jewish scholars bears the imprimatur of the National Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops and includes the 73 books of the Roman Catholic Canon.

This Bible looks very current in its presentation. I like the introductory part for each main topic. I find it easier to appreciate and understand the message it sends . Making a connection , acting on it and taking it to the heart give relevance of the bible to our life. A lot has been mentioned about religious practices in the Philippines and other parts of Asia and of course the West. Every Filipino Catholic should own one.

I bought this as an adjunct to the New American Bible that is used in the Catholic Church. The NAB is what is used in the Liturgy; I am using this in a bible study on Hebrews and it's easy to understand.
