Reviews - What do customers think about Catholic Children's Bible/Gift Edition/White?
GOOD VALUE Mar 18, 2007
Have given this bible to all my grand children when they make their first Holy Communion. It comes in white leather bound for girls and burgundy leather for boys. Have recommended it to other friends. The price from this site is a great value - paid a lot more for others I purchased in stores.
Please read carefully before giving to children Oct 7, 2006
Please be very sure to read this book carefully before giving it to children. I have an older version of this book, edited by Sr. Mary Theola, that is wrought with modernist theological commentary.
She doesn't just tell the Bible stories, she tells children what to think about the stories (such as they are just stories and didn't literally happen that way). Here is an example of her writing regarding the creation of Adam and Eve:
"Here again we have the inspired writer telling us an interesting story about our first parents. We must keep in mind that the story is being told for a religious purpose and that it is most important that we understand correctly the truths this Biblical writer wants to teach us. In saying that God formed man from the dust of the earth, he does not mean that God actually molded a man's body out of clay. We can be fairly sure that the writer did not actually believe this. Neither did he believe that woman was really made from man's ribs..."
This commentary is the personal opinion of the auther and is pure conjecture. It is not the official teaching of the Catholic Church. Yet how is a child to know that this is just a theologian's personal opinion vs. the official teaching of the Church? After all, it says "Catholic" on it...
Please, before buying this book, contact the publisher and ask whether it contains commentary by Sr. Mary Theola. If you do acquire this book, please be sure to read it before giving it to children. Don't just trust it because it says "Catholic."
If you love truth, don't buy this book for your children. May 13, 2005
This book runs contrary to the teachings of the Catholic Church. Not a good book for impressionable young minds. Unless of course you want them to lose their faith?

This is an excellent book for the young Catholic - an eapecially good choice for a First Communion gift. It is easy to read and the presentation and pictures are beautiful!
