It is self-contained with wide-ranging general introductions, introductions to each biblical book, a table of sources sited, maps and informative notes. Scholarly and readable, the Navarre bibles are a comprehensive intellectual, historical, and spiritual survey of the riches of the New Testament.

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.

  • The English Bible text is in 10.5 and 12 pt Times New Roman
  • The Commentary text is in 9.5 and 11 pt Times New Roman

    I am FINALLY reading the Bible

    I was never much of a Bible reader, just here and there, as I found it to be complicated and dry. Since I got the Navarre New Testament Bible I now read from it every day - even if just part of a chapter. I then read the commentary to reflect on what I've just read. I love how the commentary quotes the Vatican Council teachings, the Church Fathers, the Saints, the Popes etc... it is a treasury of Catholic history and theology and it is assembled in an easy to follow way. I also love the Latin!

    Amazing Commentary

    Very impressed with this wonderful bible. The commentary is superlative, and makes for engrossing reading. I can't think of another study bible that is comparable. It really is a standout. It is not simply academic as so many study bibles are, but relates to the reader from a stance of intelligent faith. The volume is very impressive: it has a sewn binding and the pages are smooth. They are not too thin and not too heavy. I was sorry this wasn't available in a leather cover. A minor flaw!

    Buy this Bible

    I would highly recommend this Bible to anyone involved in Bible Study. The format and commentaries are easy to understand. Buy this Bible. I am reading a few verses per day, and I am getting a greater understanding of the Bible than all the courses I took in college.

    The best Bible I have ever purchased

    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. This bible has excellent explanation; the commentaries written with simple easy to understand English. I am understanding more of the faith than when I first tried to read the bible before my conversion. My next purchase would be the Old Testament.
