Evangelii Gaudium 175

"The study of the sacred Scriptures must be a door opened to every believer.  It is essential that the revealed word radically enrich our catechesis and all our efforts to pass on the faith. Evangelization demands familiarity with God’s word, which calls for dioceses, parishes and Catholic associations to provide for a serious, ongoing study of the Bible, while encouraging its prayerful individual and communal reading. We do not blindly seek God, or wait for him to speak to us first, for 'God has already spoken, and there is nothing further that we need to know, which has not been revealed to us'. Let us receive the sublime treasure of the revealed word."

I have just started reading it and have liked what I have read so far. I was looking at the Bible quotations that are cited and they appear (with some variations) to be from the NRSV.

Yeah I figured it was either the RSV or NRSV. Surprised they didn't use the Knox. ;)

Just be glad it wasn't from the NWT! This popped into my mind because I just had some JWs stop by a few minutes ago.
