More About Catholic Book Publishing Co
Catholic Book Publishing Corp. is proud of its unique history and long-standing commitment to the publication of timely and timeless Catholic resources. Orphaned through a tragic car accident and with only a fifth grade education, John V. Cavalero founded Catholic Book Publishing Co. on 12th Street in New York City in 1911. Vowing to keep the family together, John, the oldest of six children, took full ownership after buying out his partner’s widow, and gladly welcomed brothers George and Louis into the business following World War I.
Under their direction and hard work, Catholic Book Publishing prospered in the printing and binding industry, working primarily with religious orders. In 1937 the company relocated to two floors of a nine-story facility on West 17th Street, eventually expanding to be the building’s sole occupant. Coinciding with the new location, the company printed its first Missals for Sunday worship and continued to add family members, including John’s sons Howard in 1939 and John, Jr. in 1942. Work on the Douay-Rheims Bible began in 1945, culminating in the publishing of the first Catholic Bible printed in the United States in 1949. Howard Cavalero, a graduate of the University of Notre Dame, was instrumental in developing and launching the St. Joseph Sunday Missal in 1950 and soon thereafter the Daily Missal. On its way to becoming the premier Catholic publisher with over 300 employees, the company added children’s books to its growing list of prayer books in 1955 and then the first Baltimore Catechism in 1961.
With the change to the vernacular mandated by Vatican II, most Catholic publishers lost their backlist and in 1969 Catholic Book voluntarily downsized, selling off its equipment and sadly laying off a large number of the staff. While working with them to find other employment, the Cavalero family and gifted staff including Anthony Buono, who was employed by the firm for over 50 years, developed liturgical books in the vernacular that are the preferred editions to the present day. Despite the uncertainty and constant changes in the Church during this time, the St. Joseph New American Bible and the complete Lectionary were released in 1970, followed by the first complete Sacramentary in 1974 and the four-volume Liturgy of the Hours in the following year. In 1978 the company launched its first full-color St. Joseph Picture Books for children that now number 100 in the series.
Catholic Book Publishing’s third generation, Howard, Robert, Joan and Fran Cavalero, with their dedicated staff continue its long tradition of providing high-quality, affordable, and popular Catholic reading material. Now headquartered in Totowa, New Jersey, Catholic Book acquired Resurrection Press, a trade publisher of contemporary spirituality, healing, and parish resources based in Mineola, NY, in March 2000, and in 2003 added the World Catholic Press imprint to the Catholic Book family. In addition to its renowned liturgical books, Bibles, prayer books, and classic perennial favorites such as The Imitation of Christ, Lives of the Saints, New Catholic Picture Bible, and Picture Book of Saints, they are always involved in developing new products. Recent years have produced the addition of a number of novelty formats for children, including the Golden Book series, Rattle Books, the Turn and Learn series, Tab Books, Clock Books, and a Piano Book. The number of children’s Bibles now available stands at 11, offering a variety of sizes, illustrations, and storytelling styles appealing to a wide range of age groups and tastes.
The company’s 100th anniversary year, 2011, was marked by the release of St. Joseph Editions of the New American Bible, Revised Edition (NABRE) in the spring and three editions of the new Roman Missal in the fall. In 2013, Catholic Book acquired The Regina Press, a 100 year old fourth generation Catholic publisher of children’s books and Bibles, Communion books and adult Prayer books. We deeply appreciate your ongoing trust and confidence in our products and look forward to meeting your needs for years to come.

Reviews - What do customers think about Saint Joseph Edition of the New American Bible?
Wonderful Feb 16, 2007
I am a Protestant and I very much enjoy this Bible. It is wonderful and helps me understand and have a greater appreciation for my Catholic brothers and sisters. Highly recommended.
Love this Bible Feb 4, 2007
Although I have always loved this Bible and have several the pager is very thin and I would like a version of this Bible that has thicker and more durable paper.
Highly Recommended! Aug 30, 2006
This bible is an excellent edition! It is a wonderful learning tool with it's easy to read scripture and illustrated maps and landmarks. It is a great visual aid to help one understand the journey of our biblical ancestors. It also has wonderful color illustrations of the New Testament and the life of Jesus, including a beautiful section on how to pray the rosary. I purchased one for my niece for her birthday. It makes a wonderful gift!
Not approved by Vatican because of inclusive language Apr 27, 2006
I was given a copy of NAB by a friend and did read some chapters. Like the reader above, I got to "Hail favour one" which is quiet different from what I remember from reading another bible as well as the rosary. To me, it is not the same as "Full of grace." This is but one instance. The commentary left me in doubt at times. Well I did a google search and found that a few years back NAB got rejected by our beloved father (Pope John Paul) because of inclusive language. Do a google search for Richard John Neuhaus and NAB for a review. Any other book and I would compromise but not the bible (the word of God). So after some due searching as well as looking at EWTN review I think I am looking towards the Navare or Ignatius. Hope that helps.
Absolutely Fine Translation...and pretty Mar 31, 2006
Personally, I don't see why people are complaining about the New American Bible. I am partway through it now and there is no deviation from the original intent of the scriptures (to my knowledge) and it is not at all "politically correctified" as some allege it to be. It has the approval of Pope Paul VI right in the front.
It contains nice maps of the holy land and diagrams and explanations of things and events that occur in the Bible, nice looking color plates of artists' renditions of the events of the Bible, a reading calendar that shows you which readings are made on which Sunday of the year, a Bible dictionary, black marks on the side of the text to help you flip to the right book instantly, insert of stations of the cross and praying the rosary, and of course the obligatory dedicatory pages that are in Bibles where you can write your children's names and your marriage and so forth. Overall, nice package, reasonably priced, and not a corrupted translation as some of the reviewers here allege.
