    Excellent Study Resource  Oct 12, 2007
    This bible is a treasure for the serious student. It gathers in one place much information required for unbiased scripture study. It has proven to be invaluable in my exegetical research, containing a scholastically-accepted scripture translation, as well as extensive notation to aide in understanding of the text. It is augmented with many maps and charts, as well as explanatory essays that aid in viewing the scriptures in light of the social and historical world in which they were composed and had early use. I have also found it valuable for my own personal spiritual use in interpretation of scripture. I would recommend it to students at high school level or above, as well as anyone seriously examining the meaning of bible scripture.
     
    Great Source for Teaching and Faith Development  Oct 12, 2007
    The St. Mary's Press College Study Bible offers the New American Bible translation of Scripture treasured by our Conference of Catholic Bishops. The articles and support materials offer sound scholarship that supports the faith development and educational goals of students from Catholic, Ecumenical Christian Denominations and Inter-Religious heritages. I have used the SMP College Study Bible in parish, senior high school and university teaching. My students and I find it an excellence text. The use of BCE and CE rather than BC and AD to identify historical eras, is essential. Students need to recognize language that is in virtually all their college textbooks in the humanities. As a person of faith, I find that the designation of BCE and CE can equally mean Before the Christian Era and the Christian Era.

    Be Careful of this Bible  May 25, 2007
    Wow finally a Bible written to a college/High School student user friendly, wait a minuite, in the introduction of the text, in several places we see the use of the term BCE (Before Common Era) and CE (Common Era) what happened to BC and AD a term that has been in use for over oh I don't know hundreds of years, is this some kind of way to water down Catholic Christianity, some kind of way to be politically correct? This totally discouraged me about this Bible in the wrong hands this could cause confussion with people, I wish they (the publishers) would call it what it is. BC/AD
