  • 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

    The Best Catholic Bible

    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.

    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

    Black Premium Ultra Soft New American Bible

    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

    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

    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?

    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

    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.

    LOVE IT!

    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
