Reviews - What do customers think about The Catholic Study Bible Second Edition?
When you can't get to the Cathedral on time Mar 30, 2007
This is wonderful when you can't get to a Catholic bible study and need nourishing of the word. Catholic 101 at all stages of faith.
So much better Jan 17, 2007
I'm just adding my vote to the several reviews that list all of the reasons the Second Edition is better than the first. It is SO much more readable and better organized. My first edition stayed on the shelf. This one stays out where I can pick it up and read it at any time.
A Study Bible that you can use Jan 16, 2007
I recently purchased this Bible and have found very helpful. I use this edition of the NAB because it has a much easier font to read than the NAB Gift & Study published by Nelson. It has all of the cross-references and notes of ealier versions. Although I don't believe that it is an approved version by the Church, the way that the notes are set up is far superior and easier to find because of the use of Stars next to a passage to indicate a note at the bottom of the page. Letters are used to indicate cross references. I find this easier than crosses and stars of the Gift & Study Bible.
The overall spacing and font choice for this Bible is great for those who usually have to squint to see the text. The text flows much more as if you were reading textbook, in appearance.
As for all of the Letters and the Study guide in the front before you get to the actual text of the bible... well I only use it if I want a General framework for a certain book in the bible or some further Historical knowledge of the Time of Jesus or the Old Testament. I would say very good helps if you just would like a little more info, but they don't (at least to me) refect anything overly Catholic in teaching. But I do read them from Time to Time. If you want to know more about the Background of each book in the Bible, I recommend taking a class or looking for further literature that will expand your knowledge of all things biblical. I would also say to not bother with the glossary or Concordance in the back, In my own bible studies I find these things to be of little value and hardly ever use them. It does define and locate Scripture Passages on certain topics, but it is not very exhaustive. I would recommend just using the cross references and notes in the text.
But other things that make this Bible great are not the color maps at the back of the Bible, but the maps throughout the Text of temples and certain areas where people traveled. There is also a list of all the parallel stories of Jesus' miracles and teachings for all four Gospels. I find this an easy way to locate the stories and study each one, and be able to quickly find the Our Father from Matthew to Luke to Mark.
I also recommend writing in this bible. Usually Catholic Bibles are known for not having much room for notes, but I find it easier to locate places where I can write my notes in this bible. It unfortunately does not have a few pages with lines in the back for some study notes of your own.
With Continued use I think that many people will find this Study Bible a valuable tool. I could say more because this bible is becoming the one that I use daily, but it would take me hours to recommend all of things I find helpful in it.
Anyone who wants to throughly study the bible, this is a good one to start with. It also (I think) would be acceptable to use along with many of the Scott Hahn scripture studies.
Not just for theology students Jan 9, 2007
An excellent, clear, easy to read and understand Bible for anyone--someone who wants to learn more about his or her faith, theology students, anyone. Good value, too.
