But none of St. Jerome's translational or textual gaffes are in any way theologically dangerous, and this text translates his work with a high degree of fidelity. The reverence the translators had for their text is often lacking in modern Bibles. The Confraternity took care to retain traditional theological vocabulary throughout the text. Some archaic language (i.e., "thees" and "thous") may be off-putting to some who, unlike myself, don't like archaic language. However, the advantages of using older forms--such as giving the reader an easy way to differentiate between singular and plural second-person personal pronouns--outweigh the disadvantages.
All in all, it is a shame this version will never see wide use, or see the moderate revision it deserves in order to bring this fine Catholic New Testament into conformity with the best Greek texts. It would be a far sight better than the NAB, which stands in need of much more improvement.
This particular pocket edition is fantastic! It will literally fit in your pocket. The text, to my eyes, is clear and easy to read, despite the book being a pocket edition. I was quite surprised at the quality of the book when I started reading it; realizing that I had only paid $10.00 for it!
Scepter Publishers did a good job with this one.
