Publishers Description The text of the books contained in the "New American Bible "is a completely new translation throughout. From the original and the oldest available texts of the sacred books, it aims to convey as directly as possible the thought and individual style of the inspired writers. The better understanding of Hebrew and Greek, and the steady development of the science of textual criticism, the fruit of patient study since the time of St. Jerome, have allowed the translators and editors in their use of all available materials to approach more closely than ever before the sense of what the sacred authors actually wrote. The "New American Bible "has accomplished this in response to the need of the church in America today. It is the achievement of some fifty biblical scholars, the greater number of whom, though not all, are Catholics. In particular, the editors-in-chief have devoted twenty-five years to this work. The collaboration of scholars who are not Catholic fulfills the directive of the Second Vatican Council, not only that correct translations be made into different languages especially from the original texts of the sacred books, but that, with the approval of the church authority, these translations be produced in cooperation with separated brothers so that all Christians may be able to use them.

His latest book is Sea of Glory, about the epic U.S. Exploring Expedition of 1838-1842. His other books include Away off Shore: Nantucket Island and Its People, 1602-1890 (which Russell Baker called "indispensable") and Abram's Eyes: The Native American Legend of Nantucket Island ("a classic of historical truthtelling," according to Stuart Frank, director of the Kendall Whaling Museum). He has written an introduction to a new edition of Joseph Hart's Miriam Coffin, or The Whale Fisherman, a Nantucket novel (first published in 1834) that Melville relied upon for information about the island when writing Moby Dick.
Philbrick, a champion sailboat racer, has also written extensively about sailing, including The Passionate Sailor (1987) and the forthcoming Second Wind: A Sunfish Sailor's Odyssey. He was editor in chief of the classic Yaahting: A Parody (1984).

New American Bible New Testament C.D. Jan 2, 2008
This was a gift and the person who received it absolutely loved it. The reader speaks clearly and has a great reading voice. Couldn't be happier with the product.
New American Bible New Testament: Revised New Testament Catholic Edition Sep 14, 2007
Very Happy with the 17 cd collection. The zippered case was an added bonus that I was not expecting. Great for listening in the car.
Best read Bible. Excellent. Apr 11, 2007
I have literally all the audio bibles and this one is my favourite. Read at a good pace and the readers voice is very smooth and easy to hear even for many hours. I love it. Came back online to buy 2 more sets.
GreatBibleNarration Apr 2, 2007
Of all the Audio Bibles I have listened to so far, this has been by far my favorite. The narrator, Buck Ford, has a great voice, good inflection and does not become tedious. It is great to listen to as you read along in an NAB version of the Bible. I wish that Ford would do the Old Testament as well. Eric Martin does an excellent narration of the enitre NAB version of the Bible - the only one I have been able to find, but I prefer Ford's voice. I also wish Ford would do the Revised Standard Version, my favorite version of the Bible. Definitely money well spent and will help me introduce my children to the Bible.
The New American Bible on CD/MP3 Jan 10, 2007
I purchased the New American Bible in MP3 format and loaded it on my 80GB IPOD. The Old Testament is not included, but all of the other books in the Catholic Cannon are included. The narration is well done and adds a great deal of drama compared to reading the Bible text yourself. There is a small amount of scared music between books and chapters which also is a plus. The narrative is unabridged which I insist on when I purchase an audiobook. All-in-all a great value for the cost!!
