    One thought on “Saint Joseph Bible-NABRE-Medium Size”

    1. (the NAB Bible, Revised Edition - NABRE)I think this is the best Catholic Bible I've read so far. There is no maps, but at the start and end are the things I mention below. This one has particularly good notes for each book (as well as introduction before each book or book group), which explain particular things, note where things have been moved around, something has been added, and what writer's own opinions might show through.The text has been revised, so notes are certainly updated, and I th [...]

    2. Bring the hate. This translation is standard issue for anyone doing anything remotely "scholastic" in Catholicism - if you want pretty, go for the King James, if you want accurate, go here. I still have the now duct-taped-together copy I was issued in 1996 when I started Catholic High School. I've read the majority of it at least 3 times per book since then, and it's still (Sort of) in one piece.One important thing to note is that there are several flat-out errors in the King James that this cor [...]

    3. I took the challenge and read the entire Bible cover-to-cover in exactly 90 days. It was one of the most spiritually gruelling and intense experiences of my life. I learned so much about God, myself, and everything in general. I couldn't even begin to sum up everything that I got out of it. This is the ultimate book of all time! I'll be reading it until I die. I can't recommend it enough. It's God's Word, after all. ;-) One hundred stars.

    4. How can I really even review this? It's the freaking Word of God! I am a Catholic and proud of it, so I cherish this book. I don't read it as much as I should, I will admit, but there is so much the Bible offers us. It offers courage and hope, gives us rules as to how to live our lives right. Most of all, it offers us God. There are some great stories in here as well. I particularly like the women of the Bible: Ruth, Esther, Mary, etc. Esther has to be my favorite. She had courage, possibly more [...]

    5. The main reason I decided to track my progress on was so that I could write a little bit about the translation at the end. Before I got this bible, I'd been reading New Revised Standard Version for a number of years. Both translations have the scholarly muscle behind them, but I found this one more reader friendly than NRSV. The phrasing of difficult passages is a little easier to wade through, and I found it quite refreshing.If those tricky passages still give you trouble, this edition has foo [...]

    6. GenesisExodusI am surprised by the amount of violence in the Bible. JobThe purpose of the writing is instructional. Job is a prosperous and pious man of some fortune. He loses his family and property suddenly. We are told however that before this happened one day Satan challenges God by telling that Job’s blameless and upright life would not hold up to misfortune. God let’s Satan take away all that he has as long as he does not lay hands on him. Job however does not complain against God. He [...]

    7. I started to read the Bible straight through from the very beginning in early February, but I wasn't sure whether - or how - to list it on . I wondered how I can possibly rate it. Would giving it a rating mean that I, as a mere mortal, was attempting to judge the work of God Himself and the countless ancient authors and editors He inspired? Or would it mean that I was attempting to judge how this particular translation conveys God's sacred message compared to any other translation? As I am just [...]

    8. I am following my brother's Daily Bible's plan to read the entire Bible within a year. Although I've grown up with it my entire life, I have never read it cover to cover, and it's time.It took me six months (because I'm a chronic reader-ahead-er) and I've now finished the Bible. I'm not rating it because it's a) THE BIBLE and b) a holy book to many and so not my place to "rate." It was definitely enlightening to read and finally see everything that's in there.

    9. The only book that is for everyone to read, but not for everyone to interpret. 40,000+ Christian denominations and counting, majority of which began due to differing interpretations of this holy book. Truth is One, not a division among many.The mark of the One True Church is embedded in the history of this holy book.I'd recommend reading Ecclesiastes first and not Genesis. In this day and age, it would seem rather apt to read the only book in the Bible wherein God is silent: the only monologue a [...]

    10. My husband gave me this Bible in Aug of 2007. This is a very nice Bible but I would like to point out that a Companion Edition isn't the same as a study Bible. The notes of a study Bibles are way more in depth than that of a Companion Edition. Personally I didn't find the notes to be very helpful in this edition. That said this is a very fine quality Catholic Bible.About the binding & coverThe cover is a new type of flux leather, its very soft like the high quality genuine leather Bibles.Thi [...]

    11. Do people give religious books higher ratings because they really enjoyed reading them or because they don't want to be penalized by the Almighty when they die for not giving the Bible five stars on a review site?I received this Bible as a senior in high school and yes, I've read it cover to cover. This being a Catholic version, there are additional books included which other Christian denominations don't consider part of the traditional canon. The translation is very straight-forward and easy t [...]

    12. It took me about a year and a half, maybe almost two years, to read the whole Bible. It was an amazing, life changing book. It really sensitized me to Biblical history to understand that, truly, generations of prophets from time immemorial have preached to people about the goodness and justice of God throughout salvation history. I got a sense of this trajectory of Biblical history only from reading the whole Bible. A pattern of miraculous instances of God's intervention in human history starts [...]

    13. Always a good read. Wars, famines, conquerors, conquered, exiled, returned, disgraced, uplifted, persecuted, persecutors, and most importantly, saved in spite of themselves, we find humanity in all its phases. Truly, nothing is new under the sun.Some of the most beautiful literature, and some that just gets the point accomplished, this timeless story of the love of God for his creation, and the rebellion that man brings to the table, is always worth reading.Even for a non-Christian, I'd recommen [...]

    14. I actually did some of my Bible reading in other translations over the course of the year, but this was the first year I did the bulk of it with the NABRE. I think the revised Old Testament is a wonderful improvement over the 1970 NAB, and when combined with the already strong 1986 NT (I'm speaking of the text here, not the notes), this is a fantastic translation. In particular, I have long felt that the 1986 NAB NT includes probably the best translation of the Gospel of John available in modern [...]

    15. My cover finally fell off my old Bible after 15 years of daily use. Time to buy a new one! This time I decided to try the St. Joseph Bible and the NABRE translation. I liked the sturdy cover, incredibly informative introductions and footnotes for each book, and the NABRE translation. I bought the medium size. Loved it, but it was too heavy for my small hands and thin fingers, so I gave it to my husband, who adores it. When I found this personal size, I snapped it up, because it's the same small [...]

    16. My husband & I really enjoyed this couples devotional bible. We borrowed it from the lending library at church. It includes a collection of 20+ articles that offer real life advice and understanding for Catholic couples. At the end of each article, there were discussions questions for us to reflect on and share our thoughts with each other. It added a lot of valuable insight to the Sacrament of Matrimony.

    17. Jumps around quite a lot, but the stories are classic, and the overarching narrative is as epic as history itself. Featuring my absolute favorite protagonist and (least) favorite antagonist, this is a work of literature I can easily recommend to anyone. A MUST READ!

    18. Celebrating my first cover-to-cover reading of the Bible, with notes. Quite an experience. Took me a little over a year of daily readings (approximately 30 minutes). This "Good Book" also makes a "good read."

    19. It's the Bible, so it's amazing. However, not the world's best translation. The Duoay-Rheims is better if you can handle the archaic speech, otherwise grab the RSV.

    20. I would be hesitant to say that this is the Word of God. I would also find it hard to defend in an argument/discussion/debate!

    21. Again, I am reviewing another product from Oxford University Press. This must be the best Bible from Oxford University Press for on-the-go Catholics like me. It is The New American Bible Revised Edition, Black Zipper Duradera Compact Edtion. It is the same Bible translation as the Oxford Catholic Study Bible.I was very impressed when I first opened the Bible. It was shrink wrapped and to my surprise, it came in a very sturdy slipcase. This surprised me because the Bible itself is in the black du [...]

    22. I finally finished reading this one - it took me about 3 years to complete, because I could only hold my attention to small portions at any one time, and it is a lengthy compilation of many books. I was particularly surprised at how aggressive and bloody some of the Old Testament stories were, and how ethnic cleansing was commonplace. Considering that the Bible is a cornerstone of our Judeo-Christian culture, I can now claim to have my own understanding of it, and not necessarily rely on the som [...]
