An Absolute MUST-HAVE for Every Roman Catholic!
on March 7, 2006
Being a recent convert to the Catholic faith, I have been verbally attacked numerous times (not surprisingly) by our non-Catholic brothers and sister on my Faith and sadly it will contine. Because of this I needed an easy, carry-around-wherever-you-go resource of my Faith to defend and explain her and that is where the New Catholic Answer Bible came in. It is a wonderful book! It is the standard New American Bible version but with apologetic articles on countless subjects in between its pages. The articles are plentiful; 88 in all (compared to the original Catholic Answer Bible which had about 44) and they are short and direct to the point in explaining what Catholics believe and why! Many questions from "Why Tradtion?" to "Why Is Contraception A Sin?" makes this Bible a junior apologist's dream! Every Roman Catholic should know and be ready to defend their faith PROPERLY and this Bible will help you do that.
If you are looking for an official Catholic Bible translation and want handy apologetic explanations to defend your faith, The New Catholic Answer Bible is a blessed and rewarding choice.
