Three Catholic Bibles To Help Reinvigorate Your Faith

Three Catholic Bibles To Help Reinvigorate Your Faith

January 6, 2021

If your goal is to understand scripture more deeper, or just to develop a better devotional life scripture reading is essential. The volumes listed fit various needs from the one who just wants scripture (The Augustine Bible), the individual who wants an outline of what the church teaches on scripture and its meaning (The Didache Bible), and the person who wants to dive deep into biblical theology (The Ignatius Study Bible). This is only a sampling, but the resources are out there. It is my prayer that this provides some guidance.
