Is there some NCV edition that combines the psalms and the NT, i.e., what is currently available?

Psalms+NT is a rather traditional combination, in particular for compact travel editions.

IngoB,

No there isn't, although I think it would be a very good idea to do so.

Deacon Dave said...

I was hoping for the same (very common) combination of Psalms/NT. I have had the NCV Psalms since they were published and now the NT. Great commentary on the psalms which I find very helpful in enriching my praying of the Liturgy of the Hours. When I have time (HA!) I would like to sit down with the NABRE and the NCV and compare some passages and footnotes.

The art and photos in the St. Joseph editions is both terrible and endearing at the same time. I hope to pick up a copy of this or the "vest pocket" version.

Timothy said...

Matt,

Those photos have been around since at least the Confraternity days, perhaps longer!

Deacon Dave said...

Actually some of the art, especially in the book introduction is new to St. Joseph additions I've seen in the past. But the photos & the study guides are all found in many St. Joseph addition publications...but they don't bother me I can find them helpful.

Why words of Christ in red?!? Why??!!!

I think they're red in the original Greek, aren't they? :)

David, the words are in red to symbolize that Christ shed his blood for us to save us from our sins and open the gates of Heaven.

Timothy - I have an old Confraternity Bible with terrible art in it too, and its great. It is strangely comforting, like ceramic light up christmas trees, or like going to your grandmother's house and seeing 50s kitsch.
