This affordable edition of the New American Bible translation is perfect for use by students. The NABRE student edition can be handed out to Confirmation classes, Bible study groups or given as a gift to an individual. Some of the special features included in this NAB Student Edition include:
Chronological Listing of Christ’s Miracles and Discourses
Note: The Catholic 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 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.
New American Bible Revised Edition (NAB-RE)
The NABRE truly has the best of the best when it comes to historians, archaeologists, linguists and theologians behind its magnificent work of being put together in the language that the average American can comprehend. Although not a more literal word-for-word translation, occasionally footnotes will describe the original wording.

I purchased this for my 8yr old who is interested in learning about how everything got started! I purchased his rosary so he can get started and he has been reading and understanding his bible and I'm blessed he was able to obtain this from your company along with the rosary. we read chapters together as I was given one of these to get started myself.
