Elegant and durable, this Catholic study Bible has all of the study features of our other study editions bound in an attractive flexible cover with stained page edges. This Bible measures 8 1/2 by 5 3/4 inches.
Includes: Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation; Origin, Inspiration and History of the Bible; 8 color maps; Encyclopedic Dictionary and Biblical Reference Guide; Celebration of the Eucharist; Three Year Cycle of Readings; and The Succession of Popes.
Note: The Bible readings used in the current missals & lectionaries & LOTH use an older version of the NAB translation that has now been updated in all the new NAB Catholic Bibles currently being printed. For this reason, this NAB Bible will be close (but not exactly word-for-word) to the readings you will hear at Mass. It is not possible to purchase an older NAB translation to exactly match the Mass readings, because they are no longer in print.

|Review:||Coming from a Protestant background, it was hard finding a bible I thought I'd like. With so many creative translations, font sizes, and fun covers to choose from in my prior experiences, I felt like I crossed over to "boring bible land" when I became Catholic. This book, I feel, is the closest I'll get. It has some excellent study notes, and very clear, concise language, and the tabs on the sides are a built in "where am I?" when I'm trying to familiarize myself with a few extra books.|

|Review:||I have the hardback version of this bible. I think it's a great study bible for those new to reading the bible (like me). It has a number of study resources included besides the bible text. I like the cross references to other scripture especially. It is a nice resource. I have a reader's edition of the RSV-CE translation that I also use, but it has very little footnotes or essays.|
