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.Read more ›
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.
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.Read more ›
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).Read more ›
