The Catholic Bible,  Personal Study Edition, Second Edition (New American Bible Revised Edition) - Softcover

One study Bible doesn't fit all, so Oxford publishes Catholic editions to suit the needs of new and seasoned Scripture students alike.

The Personal Study Edition is ideal for the beginners, whether it's used within the context of the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults or other such parish-based scripture education programs. It provides a wealth of background information in a single volume that informs readers without overwhelming them.

The Second Edition features all new callouts in the biblical text, a revised Reading Guide and enlarged section introductions and introductory essays on topics such as how to read the Bible. The Questions for Discussion that follow each book's section in the Reading Guide are newly revised and expanded. They focus on these themes: Group Sharing/Discussion, In Our Lives, and Individual/Personal Reflection/Action. In addition, there's a glossary to terms that may be unfamiliar to some readers, the Sunday and weekday lectionary readings, a select NAB concordance, and an indexed section of New Oxford Bible Maps.

"The new edition of the Personal Study Bible, while remaining very "user friendly," is enhanced with additional and insightful information that will enrich its use for individuals, as well as for study clubs. It is a must also for catechists and all who proclaim the word and break it open for others to be nurtured by it." --Maureen Gallagher, Ph.D.

Note:  The Catholic 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 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.

    Very good

    I've only had this Bible for a short time, but am finding it very helpful. There is a wealth of information to help explain God's written word. I read in it at the start of each day.
