Coming this month, Saint Mary's Press will be releasing an update to their very popular Catholic Youth Bible. I recently received a copy in the mail, which I hope to review in the coming weeks once I get a little time to look it over. So far, it looks like they have added some nice sections on lectio divina and the memorization of scripture. I also like the overall look and page format of the new CYB. Once again, it comes in two versions, the NAB and the NRSV-CE.
Here are some of the new features found in the 3rd edition:
•New 40 expanded "Catholic Connection" articles that provide a more complete presentation of those Catholic teachings that are scripturally based
• New 28 articles that address the seven principles of Catholic social teaching
• New 40 pages of 4-color inserts that help you pray, study, and live the Bible and Catholic teachings
• New Illustrations throughout to provide a visual context for the biblical stories
• New Over 275 articles updated to reflect contemporary issues and biblical scholarship
More in the coming weeks.
