Bible Review 10

I’ll combine two versions that do not go together at all and make this the last post.

Bible Review Project

  • Title: YouCat Bible
  • Publisher: Ignatius Press
  • Bible Stories
  • Protestant, Catholic, Good for Either
  • Recommended Ages: Teens or older
  • Pros:
    • If you like the YouCat version of the Catechism, you’ll like this.
    • Great for browsing.  Basically, I think it’s perfect for an audience who is inclined to flip through a book rather than read from cover to cover.  That’s possible too, of course, but all the little doodles, sidebars and text boxes are designed to grab your attention.
    • Interesting sidebar notes
    • Good introductions to each chapter
    • I like the glossy pages
    • Quirky illustrations and beautiful art

And finally, my current favorite grown-up Bible:

  • Title: The Didache Bible 
  • Translation: Revised Standard Version
  • Publisher: Midwest Theological Forum
  • Full Text
  • Protestant, Catholic, Good for Either
  • Recommended Ages: Adults or motivated teens
  • Pros:
    • Excellent study Bible
    • Comments and footnotes based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church
    • Hardcover or paperback available
    • 27 full-color biblical maps, including the journeys of Christ
    • More than 100 apologetical explanations that help to answer common questions about the Faith
    • Comprehensive, 43-page glossary and a topical index
  • Note: I always read the footnotes in this one and am just as likely to highlight something there as I am to highlight something in a Scripture passage.  There’s so much great information there!
