The NAB Catholic Study Bible, Paperback has been the choice for use by advanced students that have benefited from its wealth of background information on the historical, literary, and theological dimensions of the Bible. Saint Mary's New American Bible College Study Bible was created to meet the academic and spiritual needs of students taking undergraduate Scripture or theology courses and those studying the Bible for the first time. Now the Oxford Catholic Study Bible has been upgraded significantly. The study notes in the NAB have been completely rewritten, there are new and expanded essays (including ones treating Catholic traditions of biblical interpretation) and sidebars on special topics in the study materials and Biblical text. The heart of the revision is an extensive Reading Guide that leads the reader through the Scriptures, book-by-book. Helpful marginal references in the Biblical text point to specific pages in the Reading Guide, easing the retrieval of important background information. NAB College Study Bible is the go-to and must-have resource for college students or anyone desiring more knowledge of the Bible.
