The Navarre Bible Old Testament is a compilation of the full biblical text used in the Revised Standard Version (RSV) as well as the New Vulgate. The faculties of theology at the University of Navarre have included extensive commentaries and notes to help the reader better understand the doctrinal and practical meanings of the sacred text. Sources such as official Catholic Church documents and prominent scriptural interpretations from church Fathers and Doctors, are drawn together to create a more historical account of events. The Navarre Bible Old Testament is considered one of the top study bibles for Catholics due to its easy to read, informative content.

Each volume is self-contained, with wide-ranging general introductions, introductions to each Biblical book, a table of sources cited, maps, and informative notes. Scholarly and readable, these volumes are a comprehensive intellectual, historical, and spiritual survey of the riches of the Old Testament.

The area of Navarre is currently split between the nations of Spain and France along the western Pyrenees. The Navarre region of Spain is the location of the University of Navarre, where the Navarre bible extracts its name. The University of Navarre or Navarra is a private pontifical university founded in 1952 by Saint Josemaria Escriva de Balaguer, founder of Opus Dei. Today it is considered one of Spains top universities.

    Understanding Scripture Reading

    The Navarre <a class="autolink" href="http://www.catholiccompany.com/catholic-bibles-c464/">Bible</a> gives a better explanation for scripture reading than any other bible. The commentaries are excellent. I especially like looking up daily bible readings to get a better understanding for the Word of God. The separate volumes for the Old Testament make it easy to look up the different books. The New Testament is one volume and easy to read also. The Navarre Bible has a great reference guide to help one further comprehend what they are reading. This includes other scripture verses, <a class="autolink" href="http://www.catholiccompany.com/catechism-catholic-church-p1001150/">Catechism of the Catholic Church</a>, Church documents, Saints; in particular St. Jose Maria' Escriva. Best Uses: Reference; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Easy To Read, Well Written

    Wonderful Catholic Resource

    These volumes are a wonderful resource. The books themselves are very well produced with solid bindings and nice thick paper as compared to other <a class="autolink" href="http://www.catholiccompany.com/catholic-bibles-c464/">bibles</a>. The commentary is outstanding, not filled with liberal claptrap that infects a lot of modern 'historical perspective' commentaries. One annoyance is that the RSV-CE text, which this and the NT versions use, needs to be more tightly proof read. The latest typo I found (and there have been quite a few) is Isaiah 44:6. It reads "am the first and I am the last" instead of "I am the first and the I am the last" - there's a missing "I" at the beginning of the clause. In some places, it's caused some confusion and I've had to go online or pick up my Douay-Rheims to get the correct meaning of the verse.

    Other than that, this is a home run. Best Uses: Bible study, Useful for Catechists; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Faithful Church Teaching, Informative, Inspired, Instructive

    The books came in flawless condition wrapped nicely in bubble wrap. The comments include writings from the Early Church Fathers & other saints, as well as Catechism references & Church Document references. Each comment reads like a reflection. Awesome not only for learning more about the surrounding history & meaning of the text, but also for gaining a spiritual understanding of the scriptures.

    Fantastic Old Testament Commentary

    I bought the Navarre <a class="autolink" href="http://www.catholiccompany.com/catholic-bibles-c464/">Bible</a> complete Old Testament for my wife on our 12th wedding anniversary.
    I find myself using it a lot especially for the commentary on scripture used in the Holy Sacrifice of The Mass.
    My wife uses it almost daily for the same purpose.
    We recognize that the Navarre Bible is superior in scripture text and especially in the commentary on the respective scripture.
    We also possess the Navarre New Testament and use it daily as well.
    We recommend both the Navarere New and Old Testament for a wonderful and detailed exegesis on Holy Scripture. Pros: Durable, Good Value, High Quality
