|Review:||I bought the Navarre Bible complete Old Testament for my wife on our 12th wedding anniversary. I find myself using it a lot especially for the commentary on scripture used in the Holy Sacrifice of The Mass. My wife uses it almost daily for the same purpose. We recognize that the Navarre Bible is superior in scripture text and especially in the commentary on the respective scripture. We also possess the Navarre New Testament and use it daily as well. We recommend both the Navarere New and Old Testament for a wonderful and detailed exegesis on Holy Scripture. Pros: Durable, Good Value, High Quality|
