This edition of he Bible is excellent. There are comprehensive notes alongside the text, which makes them easy to find. The maps are very useful and the dictionary/encyclopedia would certainly be of value to someone who had not had extensive knowledge of the Catholic Faith. I am reliably told that the translation is extremely accurate - I am not a linguist, so cannot verify this myself, but it is certainly in good English which is pleasingly expressed. It is a very good edition of the Bible for someone wishing to gain deeper knowledge of God's relationship with man, particularly through the person of Jesus Christ. Finally, it is exceedingly good value for money!

If you are looking for a practical, easy to reference Catholic Bible that has nicely written footnotes and Introductions, this is a very good one. The New American Bible is the official text used at every Mass, and it contains all the original Deuterocanonical Books of the Old Testament. The books Baruch, Tobit, Maccabees, Judith, Sirach, Wisdom and parts of Daniel and Esther were all included in the Septuagint that Jesus and the apostles used.

References to doctrines that Luther disagreed with in his teachings are often discovered in the books that he authorized himself to remove from the original Bible (so much for his Sola Scriptura [Bible Alone] doctrine... sounds more like Luther alone). They are books that everyone should acknowledge and read, to fully comprehend all that God intended his children to know about Him. For those who are uncertain of the validity of the books which the Catholic Church declares are historical sacred scripture, found in the original Bible canon, these are a very few examples of the direct references to these important books:

Matt. 2:16 - Herod's decree of slaying innocent children was prophesied in Wisdom 11:7 - slaying the holy innocents.
Matt. 6:19-20 - Jesus' statement about laying up for yourselves treasure in heaven follows Sirach 29:11 - lay up your treasure.
Matt. 9:36 - the people were "like sheep without a shepherd" is same as Judith 11:19 - sheep without a shepherd.
Matt. 11:25 - Jesus' description "Lord of heaven and earth" is the same as Tobit 7:18 - Lord of heaven and earth.
Luke 1:42 - Elizabeth's declaration of Mary's blessedness above all women follows Uzziah's declaration in Judith 13:18.

This bible has explanatory footnotes with cross-reference to other passages. It is in a easily-read type. Each book has an introductory section which gives an overview and historical context.
