Format: Paperback
This is a review primarily of this edition of the NABRE, and not the translation as such. What is new about this translation is the Old Testament; the "revised" New Testament has been printed in every NAB edition for nearly twenty-five years. As for the OT translation I can only say that the revision appears to be modest in scope; after looking over familiar passages for the past hour, and often comparing them with the old NAB and with other translations, I can say I haven't noticed anything that seems glaringly out of place. There do seem to be a greater number of explanatory footnotes, and to me that's a good thing. The footnotes in the old NAB OT were often quite sparse. And from what I can tell, the content of these new footnotes is more theologically informed than previous footnotes.

Now as for this edition from Saint Benedict Press, I have to say I'm disappointed in a big way on two points: first, the typeface is very small, and the font, though quite elegant and lovely, is hard to read at the size they've used. This is especially so with the footnotes -- you practically have to squint to read them. I compared this edition with two other old NABs I have, and in both cases, the old NAB is easier to read both in the main text and in the footnotes. This is in spite of the fact that this new edition has a very attractive page layout -- much more attractive than any other NAB I've ever seen -- and the font actually is quite nice looking. It's just too hard to read. For this font it ought to be obvious that what is needed is a larger font size or perhaps more white space on the page. I'm no expert in the field of book design, so I can't say for certain; I just know that trying to read several lines of a footnote in this Bible quickly becomes irritating.

I recently purchased this Bible with my fingers crossed. There were no reviews, pictures, or much info on the exact presentation of this product. After unwrapping this product, I was extremely satisfied with my purchase.

It comes plastic shrink wrapped, I wish it had a little more protection. It arrived perfect though. The presentation is great, it is a soft leather cover that is slightly larger than the pages of the book, like most traditional bibles. The front cover is classy, with "HOLY BIBLE" impressed on it. The outside edges of the pages are gold, again like most traditional Bibles. On the bound outside part of the book, it has 4 sections: HOLY BIBLE, the NAB symbol, revised edition, and the St B Press.

With regards to the actual content of the book, it includes a cross reference and a little commentary like the NAB does. It does seem to be different. Words of Christ in red. Has a string bookmark. Some cool maps, prayers, and pictures included in the back.

This is a gorgeous Bible, one I can see myself enjoying for a long time. Definitely recommend this to everyone. I paid twenty dollars more than it is listed right now as well. Buy it.

As another review said, this Bible was purchased with little or no photographic evidence of what I was to get, only the promise that this would in fact be the newest revision of the "Catholic Bible", commonly referred to as the "New American Bible", or NAB. This, the "NABRE" has been in the works for some time now, and as I am converting to Catholicism, I wanted to have a version of this Bible that was as up to date as possible.

First off, the quality of this book is outstanding. The cover is pliable, soft, but not flimsy feeling at all. The pages are of high quality bible-book paper, the printing sharp and clear. Some color plates are included at the end which are very well done also. (Some folks think such ought to be left out of bibles, I do not agree when they are this nicely done.) No questions about quality here at all from a construction/physical qualities standpoint. In fact, not to plug this particular publisher, but a quick search of on-line auctions will show you just how many of their books are still around, though old and used, and generally if not abused they are in good shape.

Most important, however, is the content. Not being one to judge a book SOLELY by it's cover, I am very critical of the information inside books too. Here I should say that I own several other translations of the Holy Bible, of varying ages and from varying publishers. The physical qualities are, as already stated, right up there with Zondervan and World, two excellent publishers, but it is inside that this bible really shines, in its text.

This is a STUDY BIBLE, meaning that it has extensive notes included, "footnote style", below the conventional two-column layout on each page. These notes are VERY GOOD, and will greatly assist those seeking to know more of what they read.

The NABRE is a 2001 revision of the older editions of the NAB (the 1986 revision and Psalter), a fresh and modern translation made by the finest Catholic scholarship. I've appreciated and used the NAB for many years, even though I'm a Protestant believer and not a Catholic. What I appreciate in Catholic Bibles are its inclusion of the Apocrypha and Deutero-canonical books and the extra additional chapters to Daniel and Esther.

The notes of the NABRE, like the NAB, reflect the critical scholarship position which assumes the following:

a) Yahwist (J), Elohist (E), Priestly (P) sources for the Pentateuch
b) Multiple authorship of Isaiah (Isaiah & Deutero-Isaiah)
c) Late date for the authorship of Daniel (around 200 BC)
d) The preterist approach for the interpretation of the book of Revelation

What are the main differences between the NABRE and the older editions of the NAB?

A. Differences in translation. You can be the judge of which is better:

"Blessed is the man who does not walk in the counsel of the wicked, Nor stand in the way of sinners, nor sit in company with scoffers." (Psalm 1:1 NABRE)

"Happy those who do not follow the counsel of the wicked, Nor go the way of sinners, nor sit in company with scoffers." (Psalm 1:1 NAB)

"God of my ancestors, Lord of mercy, you who have made all things by your word, And in your wisdom have established humankind to rule the creatures produced by you" (Wisdom 9: 1-2 NABRE)

"God of my fathers, LORD of mercy, you who have made all things by your word, And in your wisdom have established man to rule the creatures produced by you." (Wisdom 9: 1-2 NAB)

Most noticeable is Psalm 23 (NABRE) from the Psalm 23 (older NAB).
