Product Description

  • New American Bible (NAB) Revised Edition
  • Premium Ultra-Soft Black Cover
  • Elegant, readable type-setting
  • Personalization available


After years of scholarly labor and review, the first major update to the New American Bible (NAB) text in 20 years is approved for publication. The New American Bible Revised Edition (NABRE) accomplishes three major goals in Biblical scholarship: First, a more accurate translation aided by modern archeological and historical discoveries; second, a more consistent rendering of the Greek and Hebrew to more closely express the meaning of the original text; and third, revisions in the NABRE reflect changes in modern English usage of particular words (ex. "burnt offering" substituted for "holocaust").

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.

  • Gold gilded page edges
  • Old Master Art depicting the Life of Christ
  • Presentation and Family Record pages
  • Extensive notes, commentary, cross references
  • Favorite Catholic prayers

Amazing personal Bible

Review: This is the perfect personal Bible - it's well bound and lays open flat. It's not super heavy or bulky, so it's easy to pull on and off a shelf. The cover is nice and smooth and the pages are thin, but don't feel like they'll tear easily as long as you aren't too aggressive with your page turning. You can see through the pages a little, but it's not distracting. It has a ribbon bookmark, is well annotated, and has the liturgical cycles in the back for easy reference. Definitely recommended!

The Best

Review: A beautiful, traditional Bible ... one that helps children realize how sacred and valuable Bibles were to their ancestors.

Black Premium Ultra Soft Bible.

Review: My Granddaughter said it was beautiful. I bought it for my great grandson. That no matter how old he gets or where he goes he will always have his bible with him. She said the engraving looked really good on the black.


Review: Good print size, nicely bound and easy to hold in your hand.

Well received

Review: This was a birthday present for my grandson and he loved getting it.

Doesn't look brand new

Review: I bought two of these for my twin niece and nephew for their baptism. The front of the bible has a streak on it. It almost looks like there was some adhesive on the the cover that was removed, leaving behind a residue. I tried to remove it but was unable to. Also, the gold on the edge of the pages has a couple of small scratches on it. I would expect that to eventually happen over time as the bible is used, but I was disappointed to see them already be in that condition

Premium Ultra Soft NABRE Leather Bible

Review: Got two of these bibles with engraving as confirmation gifts for my nephews. They are beautiful. My mom was so impressed I'm going to order her one. :)

The Best Catholic Bible

Review: Living in Great Britain, I ordered this Bible after reading the reviews - I was surprised that it exceeds those reviews. Beautifully bound and gilded, the cover is perfect. Text size is very readable. It is a fantastic Bible to own and is perfect for praying at home as well as for traveling. Very highly recommended.


Review: Nicest bible I've ever owned. I originally thought it was a little pricy but after having it for a little while I can say its definitely worth the money

Holy Bible-NABRE

Review: Very high quality and very easy to read.

Black Premium Ultra Soft New American Bible

Review: The print of this Bible has a uniform darkness to it and is very readable. The synthetic cover seems to be quite durable. The Bible is a nice size for carrying.

Very Happy

Review: The Bible is very easy to handle. The inscription on the cover is very nice. The pages and cover are durable and easy to read. There is some very small print though. If any need larger print, this may be an issue. It is only the footnotes that are small. I am very pleased.

Our First Catholic Bible

Review: My husband and I converted to Catholicism almost 3 years ago, but we had not purchased a Catholic Bible yet. I decided to get him this one for his birthday. It looks great and includes several helpful resources. I chose to have it personalized, and it looks nice but was much larger than I was expecting (across the whole bottom of the cover rather than just in the corner as I have seen on other Bibles). We both still like it fine, but it did catch me by surprise when I first opened the box. Other than that, it seems to be a great product! I received it very quickly and am pleased with my purchase overall!

Who needs gold foil?

Review: Comments here about the personalization almost steered me away, but it is a very classy look. Perfectly visible letters as they are more deeply cut than I a sense of permanence. The words 'Holy Bible' are also stamped without color/foil, so all letters are black on black...understated elegance. Newly confirmed teen is thrilled.

New American Bible-Revised Edition

Review: Daily reading. The red type for Jesus' words would be more useful if the font was larger. The small black font is hard to read, and the red even harder at that size.


Review: Clear and concise, very easy to read and the footnotes really help to bring out the spirit, intent and explain the reason(s) for any inconsistencies. Best Uses: Study/reference; Pros: Content is very clear, Very classy look and feel

Beautiful bible

Review: Ordered my son's name on the front. Expected gold lettering, and when it came it was stamped without color. Was a little disappointed with that. Pros: Love the soft cover

New American Bible

Review: I read the Bible each day, and because I am a senior the larger print font size 12 would have been better.

Every purchase has been 5 Stars!

Review: I use my Bible every night

Very satisified with the quality

Review: It is placed on a end table where I sit for easy access. Needs to be available in large print for those of us that are up in age.

Planning to buy another one

Review: Bought this as a Confirmation gift for my son. He was very happy with the look of it and that it has his name and the date of his Confirmation on the cover. I like the idea that this is a family Bible that he will have for the rest of his life. We both agree that it is nice that he can start keeping a log of his current family happenings, along with his future family, on the pages provided. I will be purchasing another one, in two years, for my daughter. Best Uses: Confirmation gift; Pros: The word of God in red

Good Value

Review: I feel it is a good value. It is bound too tightly, making the inside of the pages difficult to read without spreading the book. If offered the option, gold embossing on purchasers name would be a nice touch. Best Uses: QUIET TIME READING; Cons: Gold emboss would be nice, Making reading difficult, Personalization does not, Stand out, Too tightly bound

Beautiful Bible Immaculately Presented

Review: Great Value. Durable leather cover makes it ideal for daily use. Best Uses: DAILY READING; Cons: none; Pros: Enduring Quality, Excellent footnotes, Great Customer Service, New Translation

High Quality Bible

Review: A very high quality Bible. I was very happy with the personalization as well. I'm for sure going to purchase this Bible again as a personalized gift for friends an family

Awesome Bible

Review: I use this Bible to expand on the Mass readings for the day. It helps put the Word in context. It comforting to sit and hold a soft, precious book and think about God and all His wonderful works. Best Uses: I LOVE IT, Personal Use Bible; Cons: Fairly heavy; Pros: Our Lords words highlight, Readable print, Soft cover premium paper

Beautiful Bible

Review: I am thrilled with the quality of the Bible. Best Uses: Personal use size, Will cherish it forever; Pros: Love it all, Nice type size, Soft cover premium paper

Confusing info on order form.

Review: When I ordered my name to be imprinted on the front cover, I thought the color of the lettering would be the same as the gold/silver tone on the edge of the pages. It was not the same color, thus making it difficult to actually see or read my name on the cover.

Best Purchase I've made!

Review: I purchased this for my grandson and daughter, both are enjoying and reading with eagerness of experiencing the Lord word.

A Must Have

Review: A must buy for anyone who wants the most recent edition of the Catholic Bible. Bought one for myself and my husband. These will be the Bibles we use for the rest of our lives.

I did buy a second bible for myself.

Review: Really nice bible. Love the size, cover, and the Catholic prayers. I'm 79 and eyes aren't too good so the print is little small. Would I recommend to a friend - depends on their age. As I said, I bought this for a birthday gift for my grandson and he loves it.

Thank you Lord for the NAB (R.E.)

Review: Overall, the book is absolutely great. I recommend this Bible to anyone and everyone who is looking to own their own Bible and who is truly committed to reading the Scriptures. I am a faithful Catholic Christian and I recommend this book 100% without a doubt.

Perfect Bible

Review: The cover is sturdy and flexible. The pages are good quality with beautiful art work and maps included. I like being able to find the readings for each day which are listed in the back of the bible. Best Uses: Daily scripture reading; Cons: none; Pros: Calendar of daily reading, Compact Size, Easy to Carry, Great index, Nice Cover

Beautiful Bible

Review: Would like to have a choice of a "Large Print Version". Pros: Heirloom, Love The Monogram, Quality
