Having a Hard Time Reading the Whole Bible? Sep 25, 2008
If your life gets so busy that you may be neglecting the spiritual part of your being, this is the book for you. You don't have to give up an hour a day to read the whole Bible. Using this book, fifteen to twenty minutes a day will get you through the whole Bible in a year.
I've read pretty much every translation of the Bible imaginable. I own probably 12 different Bibles for comparison purposes and the RSV version is my favorite. It's accurate and readable. Check out IS 7:14 in RSV and then compare that passage in NLT or NRSV versions.
Keep this Bible in your car and when you're stuck in traffic, backed up in line at the bank or waiting for junior at soccer practice pull out this one year Bible. You'll be surprised how much calmer you'll be...with or without lipstick!
It's good but ... Jul 28, 2008
This book achieves its primary purpose: giving an easy, systematic way to read the whole Bible in one year. Three things keep me from giving it a 5-star rating.
First, the New Testament books are not in their traditional order (the Old Testament books are). I really wish Mr. Thigpen had explained why he changed the order, especially since he puts Acts of the Apostles before Luke's Gospel (the other 3 Gospels come before Acts).
Second, there's no index. This is especially important trying to keep track of the New Testament readings.
Finally, the cover's protective coating is not very long-lasting. It started peeling in a distracting way after 4 months.
All in all, I love My Daily Catholic Bible! Jun 12, 2008
My Daily Catholic Bible (MDCB) uses the Revised Standard Version (RSV) translation, which is my favorite. The RSV is one of the most accurate translations and does not use inclusive language like the New Revised Standard Version. It incorporates the Deuterocanonical Books nicely. MDCB also quotes a Saint every day, noting particular Saints' Days. Though MDCB does not follow the Lectionary readings of the Liturgical Year, it provides an additional way for the faithful to familiarize themselves with Sacred Scripture every day. Our Sunday Visitor claims that the readings are twenty minutes long. In average, this is more or less true depending on how fast you read. I have found occasional typos, perhaps one or two since I began reading MDCB around May 18, 2008. And, I wish Our Sunday Visitor provided MDCB in a hard cover edition. Nevertheless, I'm delighted with MDCB and look forward to reading it every day!
Wonderful!!!!!!! May 12, 2008
My Daily Catholic Bible is a wonderful bible for every Catholic. It is in a good trustworthy version, the Revised Standard Version, it is a nice size and the print is easy to read. The Bible is laved out with readings for each day of the year. And You can start anytime and just keep going and in a year you will have read the entire Bible. if you miss a day, you can skip that day or go back and catch up, the readings take from 10-20 minutes per day, so it won't take long to catch up. I would encourage every fellow Catholic and every Christian, from any denomination, to read the bible daily, and this, My Daily Catholic Bible, is a great way to read though the whole Bible; I would also encourage all to have more than one bible, I would suggest a Dewey Rhimes version for Bible study, with this My daily Catholic Bible being great edition and addition for daily reading. The LORD said my people die for lake of Knowledge and that knowledge is from God's word. The more we read and study the Bible the more we know the LORD.
Best daily Catholic bible I have used Apr 21, 2008
This is a great resource if you want to read the entire Catholic bible in one year. Unlike other one year bibles, this edition has all of the Catholic books of the bible. RSV translation is very readable. The edition is also laid out according to the day of the year, so you can buy it at any time and will be able to completely read the entire bible in 365 days. The only thing that would make it better would be a short commentary at the beginning of each reading that offered some insight/background/reference to that day's reading. Highly recommended.
