New Catholic Bible. Black, leather-like binding. Large Print Edition. From Catholic Book Publishing: Following the highly acclaimed publication of the New Catholic Version of The Psalms in 2002 and The New Testament in 2015, this translation of the New Catholic Bible has been accomplished by the same board of highly qualified Scripture scholars under the direction of Rev. Jude Winkler, OFM Conv., S.S.L. They were committed to render as perfectly as possible a translation of literal or formal equivalence. Numerous translations were consulted and decisions were made by consensus according to accepted principles of contextual criticism. With a deep desire to be faithful to God's inspired Word, the translators used the best available Hebrew and Greek texts to achieve a dignified and accurate version of the sacred text in language that is clear and meaningful to today's readers. The NCB translation, with a 7th grade reading level, is both highly readable and accurate. It can be enjoyed by all audiences. With extensive explanatory notes that reflect the most current consensus of Catholic scholarship, the New Catholic Bible is a translation that can be trusted to provide the reader with a prayerful and fulfilling Bible experience suitable for private devotion and study.
In this Large Type Edition of the St. Joseph New Catholic Bible (NCB), both the text and the rich explanatory footnotes of this fresh, faithful, and reader-friendly translation are set in very readable fonts.
A fine companion for the spiritual journey, this edition is intended to be used by Catholics for daily prayer and meditation, as well as for private devotion and group study.
