Cover and Amazon Listing for Catholic Study Bible (NABRE) Third Edition

The Amazon listing, for the paperback, is here.  It will be available also in hardback and bonded leather.  Why not genuine leather, like the NOAB 4th?  This is due to be released in March.

Below is the description:

This landmark resource, the first fully-based on the authoritative NABRE translation, contains the trustworthy study notes, expanded essays, and informational sidebars which have guided and informed students and general readers for 25 years. In this new edition, one-third of the Reading Guide materials are new, and all of the other Guides have been reviewed and revised by their original authors.

The extensive Reading Guide, the focal point of this volume, leads the reader through the Scriptures, book by book. References and background information are clearly laid out to guide the reader to a fuller understanding of the Bible. New to this edition is a more extensive treatment of the biblical background, including history and archeology.

Other outstanding features include: a 15-page glossary of special terms and complete Sunday and weekday lectionary readings for the liturgical years of the Church. Thirty-two beautiful pages of full-color Oxford Bible Maps come with a place-name index for easy reference.

Perfect for both higher education and clergy, Bible study and general readers, The Catholic Study Bible is an essential resource for both experienced students and first-time readers.

"trustworthy study notes" HAHAHAHAHAHA

otherwise, looks good.

Jeff Burden said...

Maybe they rewrote the study notes??

Timothy said...

Nope. Study notes go with the NABRE. The reading guides have usually been quite good. Looking forward to reviewing them.

gkcfan said...

Trustworthy study notes. Really? The NAB notes are not always trustworthy and the individual book intros reek of the worst of historical critical method which BXVI shot down in "Jesus of Nazareth" vol. 1. I'll pass on this volume.

I'm just wondering how in the world a paperback version of this THICK work will survive. Thoughts anyone on the prospect of this study bible coming in paperback form?

Luke said...

Does anyone else find it interesting that there is ZERO overlap with the scholars who wrote the reading guides and those writing the CCSS series? It seems like the polarization in the Church extends to every facet.

Timothy said...

Luke, I would say that both Fr Senior and the late Fr Daniel Harrington wrote endorsements for the CCSS.

If the Bible has a Imprimatur it is trustworthy.

Back in the mid-1990s the Christian Research Institute (a Protestant Evangelical group) wrote a review of various study Bibles. They had this to say about the Catholic Study Bible:

"Thirteen scholars, including general editor Donald Senior, contributed to the 577 pages of “Reading Guides” that precede the text. These contain brief academic introductions and section-by-section surveys of each book of the Bible, with bibliographies for further reading."

I last saw this Bible around 1995 and I don't remember much about it.

Jason Engel said...

Sales will determine whether Oxford re-releases this in some variety of leather. I hate to say it, but to a certain extent the old saw has teeth: it seems Catholics tend to buy fewer Bibles per individual than Protestants, and tend to be satisfied with lesser quality craftsmanship in the Bibles they do buy. In a way, I see the possibility that R. L. Allan might bind a Catholic NRSV in their signature goatskin style as the one test that must be passed - If they make it, the Catholics better come, or no publisher will again consider publishing premium quality Catholic Bibles.

Mark DeForrest: I like the NABRE 2010 edition but the Vatican website carries the 1970 OT.

Interesting enough, I just went on the Vatican website and looked up
the English translation of the Bible; just go here and you'll find
it has NO LINK listed for the Psalms !
http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG0839/_INDEX.HTM

Jeff S. said...

P.S.
What I meant was it does have the word Psalms, but there is
no clickable link after the word or as part of the
word itself. For example, Obadiah has nothing listed after it,
but Obadiah itself is a clickable link. Similarly for some other
shorter books like Philemon, 2 John, 3 John, and Jude; they are their
own clickable link. But the Psalms has no links listed to click on
after it and itself is NOT clickable.

Michael Demers said...

Jeff S.: you can access the Psalms (1991)on the Vatican website if you go the last chapter of Job and click on "Next" or go to the introduction for Proverbs and click on "Previous".

Michael Demers said...

Why doesn't the Vatican website show the New American Bible Revised Edition of 2010?!

Jeff S. said...

Michael,
Thanks for the tip. However, it's still very awkward.
http://www.vatican.va/archive/ENG0839/__PFS.HTM
It forces you to keep clicking "Next" to get to the next psalm,
one-by-one. So if you want to get to psalm 122 for example,
you have to do quite a lot of clicking.

Hopefully you can find another trick to make your neat tip even
easier to use. I notice as I click, the URL changes with a pattern
which I'll write down and send in a following post



Michael Demers said...

Jeff S.: Google psalm 122 vatican.va and click on it in results. Not always very consistent nor convenient. Do you know that the NABRE is on the USCCB website and BibleGateway? Have fun!

Jeff S. said...

Here's the pattern to the URL's for the Psalms:
It's a 36 element long pattern once it gets going
as you should see below. You'll note that the last
"group" has only 35 elements since the Hebrew, Catholic, and Protestant
Bibles have only 150 Psalms. The Eastern Orthodox one does have Psalm 151
and it's found in the NOAB RSV and NOAB NRSV (each with the Apocrypha)!
Hopefully I don't have any typos here.

Due to space limitations by the system here, I'll post it in three successive
frames:

I've been in touch with the publisher to ask they pursue rights to distribute RSV-2CE as well, and they are following up on it.

P.P.S.
The explanatory phrase Psalm xxx shown for each link is
NOT actually part of the link. I just put it there so you'll know what Psalm the link is for. So just copy and paste up through
the .HTM part of each link.
