After years of scholarly labor and review, the first major update to the New American Bible (NAB) text in 20 years is approved for publication. Saint Benedict Press is proud to release the New American Bible: Revised Edition (NABRE) in a variety of formats on Ash Wednesday, March 9, 2011. The NABRE accomplishes three major goals in Biblical scholarship: First, a more accurate translation aided by modern archeological and historical discoveries; second, a more consistent rendering of the Greek and Hebrew to more closely express the meaning of the original text; and third, revisions in the NABRE reflect changes in modern English usage of particular words (ex. burnt offering substituted for holocaust ). Saint Benedict Press is a proud publisher of the New American Bible Revised Edition (NABRE) in three handsome editions Black Premium UltraSoft, Burgundy Hardbound, and Quality Paperbound. Each with extensive notes, commentary, cross-references, a 3-year cycle of readings for Sunday and weekday Masses, and favorite Catholic prayers. Shown here is our best selling Black Premium UltraSoft cover that is both luxurious and durable. In Standard Size: 5 x 8 1/8, with 1760 text pages printed on quality Bible paper. Perfect for daily use.
