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.

  •     Very nice. Better shape than described
  •     This is, overall, a good study bible, but difficult for me to rate. I give it 4 stars, but really I would prefer to give it 3.5 stars. In addition to extensive notes and good introductions to the biblical books, it includes a lengthy reading guide which can serve as an introductory textbook to the bible. Really, this is a bible and bible commentary built into one handy volume. The addition of the Latin Rite 3 year lectionary is also a nice touch.Weaknesses: The New American translation is fairly good and it is the official english translation for Latin Rite Roman Catholics in the United States (Eastern Catholics use the Revised Standard Version). But it is at times excessive in its use of inclusive language and is not as literary as the Revised Standard Version. The notes are for the most part good, but tend to rely too much on modern historical criticism with not enough attention to how the Tradition has interpreted passages of scripture. I would recommend that Catholics get the New Jerusalem Bible to use with this study Bible. The notes in the New Jerusalem Bible are more thorough and more explicitly Catholic. The New Oxford Annotated Bible is also recommended (the 1977 Revised Standard Version, not the NRSV). This edition includes the entire Canon of Scripture as accepted by the eastern Churches as well as the Western Canon. The Revised Standard Version is a literal and elegant translation that has not been infected with the "political correctness" of inclusive language. The notes to the Oxford Annotated Bible are fairly good, but relect a liberal protestant bias. However, read with the Catholic Study Bible and the New Jerusalem Bible, the three make for a nice group of texts to use for bible study. Catholics should also consider the Christian Community bible commissioned by the bishops of the Phillipines. This Bible has excellent notes which combine current scholarship, devotional exegesis, and a third world concern for social justice into one package.
  •     I've been searching for this version of the NAB (before revisions) because it's the same version as the lectionary scripture that is used during Liturgy of the Word at mass.
  •     Well constructed Bible.
  •     Not that impressed with the way it looked.
  •     Yes it did I will be greatly used
  •     Good
  •     This tome contains an enormous amount of extra information added by recent scholars of the scriptures.
  •     The Catholic Study Bible is one of the best study bibles for students and scholars of biblical criticism. The biggest asset: the extensive Reading Guides, which are very helpful for gaining a historical perspective and general background on all books of the bible. The New American Bible translation and footnotes are understandable enough, but this study bible lacks an important feature: an index or concordance. This study bible is recommended mainly for those in serious critical bible study, not those in mainstream Christianity.
  •     book is big and unwieldy.
  •     This was a great purchase! Exactly what I wanted. The book was used, which I knew when I purchased, but in great condition. I could not believe how inexpensive it was also.

  •     I am in RCIA classes preparing for acceptance into Roman Catholicism. I have read the protestant Bible approximately 5 times now, and this current time is a study Bible, as well. This new read includes the extra books approved as canonical by the holy catholic church. I look forward to God opening my mind and training me even more in the language of Love the Bibles I have read has brought out.
  •     This is a pretty substantial Bible--and, by that I mean heavy. There are lots of articles from "big names" in Catholic Biblical scholarship. So, one will get the most up-to-date thinking on authorship, dates, readings, etc. and so forth. The translation is the same reliable NAB for the Old and New Testaments. The translation of the Hebrew Scriptures can be a little too dynamic, rendering perfectly understandable Hebrew idioms into English. But, the literal Hebrew is usually referenced in the notes. The same could be said for the New Testament. For all its girth, it is not a pretty Bible, though, and the pages are thin. My great disappointment is the bowdlerized version of the Psalms which have been "inclusivized" to the point of mistranslation. It's one thing to translate the generic word for "man" as "human being" or whatever (no, I have no problem with that); quite another to change third-person address into second-person (i.e., "He is the LORD" becomes "You are the LORD.") This is not always done consistently, however, which makes the slipshod translation look even more inconsistent and slipshod. The Book of Psalms is where the NAB's translating committee's agenda trumped its duty to translate . . . and, it is a pity.
