"I am often asked to recommend a study Bible for Catholics, but I have never been able to do so without reservation . . . until now! At last there is a Catholic study Bible that has all of the things you need for an ideal Scripture study experience: a literal version of the biblical text so that you can grasp details that otherwise would be lost in translation, study helps that are theologically orthodox, introductions that respect Christian tradition instead of presenting the ideas of secular biblical scholarship as if they were gospel truth, a faith-building rather than faith-subverting perspective, plus copious notes, word studies, essays, charts, maps, and indexes to help you get the most out of God's word. Trust me. The Ignatius Catholic Study Bible New Testament is the one you've been waiting for!"
