This hardback edition is a larger size (apprx. 7 x 10 inches) to accommodate much more extensive commentary than in either the compact edition or the original paperback 12-volume edition. The commentary focuses in more depth and length, on a related topic, as compared with the shorter, more detailed commentary on individual verses or very short sections. It avoids repetition between Scriptural books. There is a unitary vision and explanation for each Scriptural book, more attention to the sense of the text, and the avoidance of repetition in explanations of the synoptic Gospels. The larger trim size and more ample margin allows for easier reading and note taking than in earlier versions.

Invaluable commentary with biblical text


By:
Review: I use the Navarre Bible to assist with readings for Daily Mass and have found it to be invaluable. The commentaries come from such credible resources as the Magisterium of the Church and the Catechism of the Catholic Church. I could not recommend it too highly. Best Uses: Assist Scripture Reading, Gift, Reference; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Understand, Indispensable Resource, Informative, Well Written

A must for every Catholic home


By:
Review: I use this product in a Bible study I am leading. Chock full of references, comments and explainations it has provided more than it's share of AH moments; that moment where a puzzling verse was explained in a context that opened a door that was previously closed. Having comments from the Church fathers is especially useful, providing a reference to put things in context where as a non-annotated Bible may leave you wondering about the message. Best Uses: Bible study must, Reference; Cons: Need a single OT as well; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Engaging characters, Every verse explained, Informative

One of the best meditation/commentaries


By:
Review: A simply great resource for the average layman or scholar looking for a NT commentary that provides a comfortable source of study and meditation all at the same time. Many references from the Church Fathers, Vat. II documents, Papal writings, quotes from the Saints, and ways the text can be applied to the Christian lifestyle. In two words, "Buy it". Best Uses: Gift, Older Readers, Reference, Younger Readers; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Engaging characters, Great prayerstudy resour, Informative, Page-Turner, Well Written

NOTHING BEATS THE NAVARRE FOR STUDY


By:
Review: There are many great Study Bibles. I own them all; NAB, NRSV, RSV, NIV, ESV, NKJV, And nothing even comes close to the study notes in this Navarre Bible. Simply put, they are easy to understand and everything possible is fully explained. The only negative thing about the Bible is that the study notes are so thorough that you need a pick up to carry all the NT & OT books to your study class! Best Uses: BEST STUDY BIBLE PERIOD; Cons: NO DISLIKES FOUND; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: BEST NOTES OF ANY BIBLE

Outstanding addition to the series

Review: I was looking for a study bible that would teach the Catholic faith. I found it!!! There is an explaination of the verses that is very helpful along with siteing the document that the Catholic teaching comes from.

On the whole it has helped me TREMENDOUSLY in understaning the Catholic faith and where it is based in scripture.

The best Bible I have ever purchased


By:
Review: I'm a new convert to Catholicism and English is my second language. Reading the bible without the commentaries was difficult, it actually felt like a chore.
