Product Description

The Navarre Bible New Testament is an assemblage of the full biblical text used in the Revised Standard Version (RSV) as well as the New Vulgate. The professors of theology at the University of Navarre have included thorough commentaries and notes to help the reader better understand the doctrinal and practical meanings of the New Testament text. Sources such as official Catholic Church documents and prominent scriptural interpretations from Fathers and Doctors of the Catholic Church, are woven together to create a more historical account of events. The Navarre Bible New Testament is considered one of the best study bibles for Catholics due to its clear and informative content.

The University of Navarre or Navarra is a private pontifical university founded in 1952 by Saint Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer, founder of Opus Dei. The University of Navarre is considered one of Spains top universities by todays standards. The region of Navarre is currently split between the nations of Spain and France along the western Pyrenees.

Navarre Bible NT is wonderful

Print very small for older readers


By:
Review: Just started to read so not able to comment. We are disappointed in the small print. It will be difficult for my husband to read and so he probably won't pick up too often. We thought with the individual books the print would be larger. I would only recommend to a few of our older friends just because of the small print. It was highly recommended by our young priest and he always makes good recommendations but I will have to check him out on print size the next time. Best Uses: Reference; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Informative

Definitely worth it.

Wonderful, thorough study Bible


By:
Review: I use this Bible every night when I read the daily mass readings. The comments are in paragraph form, and include both details explaining the text, as well as reflections from the Church Fathers, Magisterial documents, and saints (notably St. Josemaria Escriva). One thing I really love about this Bible is that it doesn't fall into the modern trap of hyper-skepticism, doubting the authorship and date of composition of every book of the Bible. It gives the solid, obvious reasons for traditional authorship (i.e., the unanimity of the first 1,800 years of the Church, or the fact that the author inserts his name in the greeting). A good companion volume is Scott Hahn's Ignatius Study New Testament. This also provides an overview of the authorship debates. Scott Hahn examines the reasons modern critics doubt the authorship of each book, although it seems to me that he gives them a little too much credence, as opposed to this Navarre Bible. When reading Hahn's overview of their reasons, I found that their explanations crumble at the slightest touch. (For example, they say some of Paul's pastoral letters really weren't written by him, in spite of his explicit greetings in the beginning of the letters, only because they have a slightly different style than his other letters.) The Navarre Bible doesn't go into as much detail about the thinking of modern scholarship (in my view probably because it doesn't deserve serious refutation), so the Ignatius New Testament is a good companion volume, especially since the paperback version is inexpensive. Best Uses: Reference; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Informative, Well Written
