This is a gift that will be cherished for a lifetime, and handed down to the next generation as a treasured heirloom. New American Bible Revised Edition (NABRE) is the first major update to the New American Bible (NAB) text in twenty years. Reflecting the work of nearly 100 scholars and extensively reviewed and approved by the USCCB, the NABRE takes into account the best current scholarship as well as the new discovery of ancient manuscripts that improve our knowledge and understanding of the Biblical text.
With its extensive notes, commentary, and cross-references, the NABRE will promote a deeper love and understanding of Scripture in the home, parish and school. In addition to its wealth of study material, each Saint Benedict Press NABRE features a 3-year liturgical cycle of Sunday readings, a 2-year liturgical cycle of daily Mass readings, a listing of Popes, and a manual of favorite Catholic prayers.
Features include: extensive notes, commentary and cross-references, elegant, readable typesetting, gilded page edges, beautiful Old Masters art and full color maps, presentation and family record sections.
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:||I had suffered along for some time with a copy of the Gideon Bible and I found out that the local Catholic book store didn't carry the Catholic Bible. It was made easier for me to get one through the computer and the one I chose was what I had wanted for a long time; it is annotated and the notes are full of information that I didn't know before. Needless to say I am very pleased with this purchase.|
