The first true study Bible for Roman Catholics, this volume offers intermediate and advanced students a wealth of background information on the historical, literary, and theological dimensions of the Scriptures.

The heart of the Catholic Study Bible's helps is a 577-page Reading Guide that is linked to the NAB text by marginal cross-references in the biblical text. The Reading Guide outlines each book and provides in-depth information on its contents and purpose from the perspective of the Roman Catholic tradition. Charts and suggestions for further reading enhance the Guide's value. This unique resource also features a glossary of biblical terms, the complete Sunday and weekday lectionary readings, and authoritative, full color New Oxford Bible Maps.

From Library Journal:

Several years ago, the New American Bible was issued as the official Roman Catholic text for public reading. Based on the original languages, it included introductions and notes from a Roman Catholic perspective. Edited by ecumenically recognized Roman Catholic scholars, but deliberately reflecting Roman Catholic teaching, the present volume includes the complete text of the New American Bible, along with updated essays on the Bible generally and guides to individual books. Each of these guides gives the historical background to the book as well as a bibliography for further reading; for the longer books, a section-by-section commentary is offered, often including a discussion of its current, and Christian, relevance.

Review:


"I highly recommend the revised Catholic Study Bible to my students, colleagues, and friends. With the additional introductory articles, it now provides exceptional coverage of issues of great importance for both academic and pastoral concerns; they bring this wonderful tool for learning to a new standard of completeness and excellence, and in accessible language. Revisions of the Study [Reading] Guides ensure insightful, contemporary discussion of the biblical texts by excellent scholars and teachers. This is a treasure." --(Rev.) John C. Endres, S.J. Professor of Sacred Scripture, Jesuit School of Theology at Berkeley and the Graduate Theological Union
