Item description for The Catholic Bible, Personal Study Edition: New American Bible by Blk I...

One study Bible doesn't fit all, so Oxford publishes Catholic editions to suit the needs of new and seasoned Scripture students alike. The Personal Study Edition is ideal for the beginners, whether it's used within the context of the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults or other such parish-based scripture education programs. It provides a wealth of background information in a single volume that informs readers without overwhelming them. The Second Edition features all new callouts in the biblical text, a revised Reading Guide and enlarged section introductions and introductory essays on topics such as how to read the Bible. The Questions for Discussion that follow each book's section in the Reading Guide are newly revised and expanded. They focus on these themes: Group Sharing/Discussion, In Our Lives, and Individual/Personal Reflection/Action. In addition, there's a glossary to terms that may be unfamiliar to some readers, the Sunday and weekday lectionary readings, a select NAB concordance, and an indexed section of New Oxford Bible Maps.

* Marginal references in the biblical text that point to specific pages in the Reading Guide are screened for greater visibility
* A 25-page glossary defines biblical terms with which students may not be familiar
* A 36-page section of authoritative, full color New Oxford Bible Maps (with place name index)

Reviews - What do customers think about The Catholic Bible, Personal Study Edition: New American Bible?

I love this bible!!  Feb 19, 2008
I purchased this bible in 2004 and I love it. I use it every week during a scripture study and for personal reading. I had a friend who had the same version and I very much liked the look of his and all the features in the front of the bible so I bought it myself! I highly recommend it!
Another Good Bible...  Feb 15, 2007
Im not much of a christian, and I do not really study the bible. This version is particularly usefull if you really do want to know the history and culture behind the writings. In the beginning of the book is a readers guide that is referenced from within the text of the bible itself. Anytime there is something that may be elaborated, weather it be a piece of culture, or an explanation of the passage, it is referenced to the readers guide. Not bad for around 25 dollars.
Not the Best  Jun 14, 2004
I gave this bible 2 stars because it is the "official" translation used at Mass in the USA. And that's the only reason. The notes definitely are mild historical/critical in nature with no "life application" (How does this verse, passage, book help me to live for God). It is typical of what we receive in our parish homilies - beige. No fire. Academic. After reading the notes one could wonder why the Bible is such a best seller.

I think it was an honest attempt to make the Bible accessible to more people in the parishes. I think the editors would have done far more good had they used the style of the "Life Application Bible" series and just 'tweaked' it for the Catholic audience.

If your studying the BIble academically this version may help you a bit. If you are approaching the Bible to have an encounter with God - and your new to Bible Study - perhaps The Life Application Bible would be of greater service.

The recommended Catholic Bible  Jun 28, 2002
Most church authorities in America recommend the New American for those wishing to study. As with most Catholic bibles it is translated from the Greek rather than the Hebrew, even in the Old Testament. It also contains five apocryphal books that were removed by Martin Luther when he instituted Protestant reform of the Catholic Church. For a practicing Catholic, or someone who is interested in the bible in general it is a good edition, and comes in different sizes and formats. However, it does not match the poetry of the King James Version, or the Jerusalem Bible. (The Jerusalem Bible is the Catholic poetic Bible from Vatican II.) This Bible is an excellent example of scholarship.
The Catholic Bible  Mar 12, 2002
I am just merely responding to the person who wrote that the Douhay-Reims Bible is no longer available. It is available and in print and a very good bible to read. I cannot truly rate this book as I have not read it, but wanted to correct the information that the person before me erroneously stated. Thank you.
