Great Bible For Personal Study & For School Jan 18, 2007
This is a great Bible to use for personal study, and we also use it daily in our school (homeschool) studies. The print is clear and easy to read, and the actual passages are clearly "written" and are pleasant to read. We would definately recommend this bible to friends and fellow homeschoolers.
Invaluable, But Literalists Beware. Jan 17, 2007
While I feel this edition of the "New American Bible" is invaluable, you should avoid it if your faith depends on a strict literal interpretation of the Bible. (If this is the case with you, and you are looking for a nice version of the Bible, I suggest the "New King James." That is a well written Bible that many Protestants use, and it should not upset your faith.) While the original "Revised Standard" is the translation I prefer the most, the "New American" is also a Catholic Approved Bible. While I feel the "Good News" takes the prize for the most beginner friendly Bible, this edition of the "New American" comes really close. Like the "Good News," this version has intros to the different books that are helpful for beginners or people seeking a deeper understanding of the text. Like the "Good News," this version also has titles that break up the text and give an indication as to what the passages pertain to. The 'New Testament' is a revision of the previous edition of the "New American." While I still prefer the original "Revised Standard," this translation is well done. I say literalists and Protestants should use caution, because they will undoubtedly find the footnotes disturbing. But Roman Catholics and Anglo Catholics should find them impressive as well as enlightening. Amongst other things, the footnotes explain that not everything that was labled as an act of God was so; they also explain that the events were not being documented as they happened. As Gerard Rosse said in his "The Cry Of Jesus On The Cross:" 'The Bible must not be read as a newspaper, but as narrative theology.' Another nice bonus is this version has a list of the Popes from Peter to John Paul II. Since this is a Catholic Approved Bible, it of course contains the 'Deuterocanonicals.' (Better known as the 'Apocrypha.') I still feel the "Good News" is the best for beginners; and the original "Revised Standard" will probably always be my favorite version. But in my opinion, this edition of the "New American" should be in the library of any Roman Catholic or Anglo Catholic. I dare say Ukraine Orthodox as well. The price of $6.95 is virtually nothing when considering that you are getting a great Catholic Approved Bible, the 'Deuterocanonicals' / 'Apocrypha,' a list of the Popes, great introductions to the books, and outstanding footnotes. Few Bibles will get you closer to Christ than this one!

The New American Bible for Catholics Nov 6, 2006
This is an excellent book for the price. It is well written and I am enjoying reading it. It has notes that contain where the words came from, how they were interpeted, and is very interesting.
