The Ignatius Catholic Study Bible is a great tool for small groups seeking to understand the Bible from a Catholic perspective.
This concise, 80-page paperback, is composed of five major sections:
- Introduction to the Ignatius Study Bible
- Introduction to the Acts of the Apostles
- Outline of the Acts of the Apostles
- Acts of the Apostles with Commentary by Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch
- Study Questions by Dennis Walters
The commentary includes historical background, with maps, and categorized notes. The notes have symbols next to them indicating whether they are:
- content and unity
- living tradition
- analogy of faith
The study questions are grouped by chapter, and then broken down into two sections per chapter: "For understanding" and "For application." The understanding questions are textual analysis questions. " The application questions are pertinent for the spiritual lives of Catholics. However, space was not provided within the questions themselves for notes. There are no notes pages at the end of the book, and white space was not allotted within the questions themselves, so you may want to use a notebook in conjuction with this study guide.
Overall, the organization of this study guide makes it an effective tool for novices, and challenging for for more knowledgeable Catholics.

Hahn & Mitch have done another fantastic job. They take the data of the biblical book, break down for the modern reader what's happening, how it relates to what's going on before and after, and gives us the theological significance besides.
I love all the Ignatius Bible Study commentaries. As a group there is no modern commentary series that is its equal. They have the depth necessary for scholars looking for an accessible resource and the straight forward approach that American readers long for.
They do an excellent job in particular demonstrating the parallels between the ministries of Peter and Paul while these two carry out the ministry of Jesus in word and deed.

Format: Paperback
This series of books is ideal for those wishing to study the bible on a book-by-book basis. The books themselves are reasonably priced and self-contained (meaning you get both the scripture and the commentary). The questions in the back are great for not only checking up on your grasp of the details of each chapter, but to apply the contents of the chapter to one's everyday life. It can also be used for individual bible study, small groups, or (as I've done it) a group of about 40 people. Also, there are great maps and word-studies of key concepts in the scripture.

This is the Book of Acts from the Ignatius Study Bible with lots of pertinent footnotes and questions for each chapter to help illuminate what one has learned. A group of 5 that I am in has just started a group study with this. One thing that would improve the study book is to have spaces to write answers to the study questions in the back.
I was part of another group at my church for the Gospel of John bible study by the same publisher last fall and it was also very good.

i read a lot of scott hahn so i decided to read his notes on the new testament and genesis...

i read them, i love them!!!

each front of one has the author - not who he was, but everybody he could be! then he goes on to explain all the main couldbes of the author, and why most picked the author they picked... and then the church's answer to it...

he explains the layout of the book, who it was written to/for, and why...

in the notes, at the bottom of each page of the book, the notes are abundant...some notes, because if you put in every note on every thing you end up with...the catechism, lol! no seriously the notes are worth reading, especially "contents and unity", "living tradition", "analogy of faith", topical essays, word studies, and charts...

i like curtis mitch, too...but the intro to the gospels, etc, arent in the individual books, and the study questions for understanding and for application arent in the new testament...

im looking forward to the old testament coming out individually and the old testament as whole...

also some (i dont know how many or how to order them) comes in large, easy to read format! great for stroke, lol!

I did not realize that the writing was so small. I have a hard time reading it in spite of the fact that the content of the book is
great.

I have used other Bible Studies by Scott Hahn and I have liked them all. I especially like the commentary that is included on the pages of text. Very Helpful to understand the true meaning of the study verses.
