Reviews - What do customers think about 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.
