Great Bible for reading Mar 26, 2007
This Bible is in a wonderful leather cover with a good matte texture. Unlike many Bibles I've seen, the textual interpretation notes are collected at the end of each book. I prefer this, as I tend to get distracted by these notes when I'm reading. The lectionary at the end is useful for previewing the readings that will be proclaimed at Mass. The sides of the pages bear index tabs, but the Catholic books (e.g., Wisdom, Sirach) are not included on the tabs (the books are included in the Bible, but you'll have to remember their locations in the Old Testament).
The one caveat with this Bible is that the pages are quite thin - I end up turning the pages very carefully. The thin pages make for a very compact Bible - only about 1-1/4" thick including the cover.
Beautiful Translation Mar 13, 2007
I have other Bibles and will check my understanding by cross-referencing between them. This is a beautiful translation and very easy to understand.
As a book, it is built to last, with the leather cover and good quality paper.
The only criticism so far with it is the type size is a bit small for me. It is a good size for reference tho, and with larger type it might not be.
Not for rough hands Feb 17, 2007
The New American Bible is one of the best translations of the Scriptures out there. It is used in the Lectionary for the Mass of the Catholic Church. This publication, however can be difficult to read and handle, due primarily to a small font size and very thin pages. The soft leather cover attracts scratches quite easily, but I can say that it is very attractive (turquoise and black). The fact that the notes and comments for certain verses appear at the end of each book makes reading the references a little difficult. I find myself having to turn to the back of each book constantly to see the translator's comments. If you don't need the notes, this is great for you! It truly is a reader's edition. If you are new to the Bible, I would recommend a version where the notes and Scriptural references appear at the bottom of each page.
Great Bible Nov 10, 2006
Love this bible for personal study,also has catholic prayers in the front, font is a little small but the quality out weighs the lack of font size. This is a high quality bible and 20 dollars cheaper than alot of other vendors , same bible used in the mass of the catholic church.
