Pray for us, so that the word of the Lord may speed forward and be glorified, as it among you. 
- 2 Thessalonians 3.1 

It was with this spirit that a Catholic-led interfaith team of biblical scholars undertook the challenge to translate the Bible into modern English. The result is the New American Bible, a Catholic Bible translation equally suitable for private devotions, careful study, and reading aloud in public. Drawing upon recent textual scholarship and reflecting careful consideration of the Dead Sea Scrolls, the Revised Edition NAB contains a fully revised Old Testament and a Psalter that is rendered to provide a smooth, rhythmic translation.

The NABRE New American Bible Revised Edition contains:

  • A careful translation of the original language texts
  • Introductions and outlines for every book of the Bible
  • Over 8,000 helpful notes prepared by the best Catholic biblical scholars
  • A thorough cross-reference system

This edition contains a complete list of readings for Sunday Mass and Major Feasts of the Year, as well as a Weekday Lectionary.

    The Imitation of Christ

    The Imitation of Christ

    by Ignatius Press
    $14.95

    Translated by Ronald Knox and Michael Oakley

    Author: Thomas à Kempis.

    The spiritual classic is, the second most widely read spiritual book after the Bible, has had an astonishing impact on the spiritual lives of countless saints, peasants, and popes for centuries. Even today, the soul-searching words of the fifteenth-century cleric Thomas à Kempis continue to resonate, unbounded by time or geography. Drawing on the Bible, the Fathers of the early Church and medieval mysticism, his four-part treatise shrugs off the allure of the material world, blending beauty and bluntness in a supremely spiritual call-to-arms.

    This beautiful translation by Ronald Knox and Michael Oakley is considered by many teachers, writers, and readers to be the best English translation ever, and one that greatly enhances the life-changing insights.
