  • 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.

Features Include:

  • 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
  • Full color maps

    Great Bible for Husband

    I was looking for a nice, NAB, Bible for my husband with a nice font size. He is new to studying/reading the Bible so I wanted a nice gift for him. He really liked it. Nice size, nice font, nice readability.

    Love my new Bible

    I just received my new Bible. It arrived even quicker than what was estimated (which is especially great as I was going to be away all next week and it would have sat outside for 5 days) It's truly beautiful. The cost is not minor, but it's going to last me for the rest of my life. I can see that it was money well spent. I'm putting my name in it tonight and 'claiming it' for myself. This is the first thing I've spent money on since the 'stay-in-place' order from C-19 left us all virtual prisoners at home. I'm just delighted with my new Bible. One thing I was very glad to see is that it was printed here in the USA. Great job catholic Company for delivering such a nice product, faster than predicted. The first of I'm sure what will be many purchases. Please pray the Rosary.

    Amazing personal Bible

    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

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

    Black Premium Ultra Soft Bible.

    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.

    Doesn't look brand new

    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
