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:||The cross-references and the footnotes are intensely informative. There is a lot of information that helps clarify the text, put things in context, and make it accessible to all types of readers. If someone likes to know history/word-play of the original Hebrew and later Greek translations, this is probably one of the best things you can get. Best Uses: Gift, Reference; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Informative|
