Now in brown duotone binding, a complete personal-size edition of the New American Bible. Contains many helpful aids for easy Bible reading and study. A lovely and meaningful gift. GIFT BOXED.
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:||This is a beautiful rendering of The Holy Scriptures. The contemporary translation is easy to follow and the footnotes thoroughly explain whatever the reader has trouble understanding. The first section gives historical information about the places mentioned and the illustrations are top notch. The back section contains a list of all the Mass readings for years A, B & C. The cover is soft to the touch and pliable for long reads. I heartily recommend it to anyone. Best Uses: Gift, Personal Use Bible, Reference, Travel Reading; Cons: SMALL PRINT; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Beautiful Illustrations, Extensive Footnotes, Includes Maps|
