The NAB Deluxe Gift & Award Catholic Bible, Zipper Close, Burgundy Imitation Leather is The Official Catholic Bible--as authorized by the Bishop's Committee of the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine. In black imitation leather with a zipper close, this edition of the New American Bible contains many helpful aids for easy Bible reading and study. The handy zippered case will hold treasured prayer cards. A lovely and meaningful gift. Note: The Bible readings used in the current missals & lectionaries & LOTH use an older version of the NAB translation that has now been updated in all the new NAB Catholic Bibles currently being printed. For this reason, this NAB Bible will be close (but not exactly word-for-word) to the readings you will hear at Mass. It is not possible to purchase an older NAB translation to exactly match the Mass readings because they are no longer in print.
