LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - The New American Bible, Revised Edition is the official Bible of the Catholic Church in the United States, especially approved by the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops and released in 2011.

At least one copy of this revised edition should be present in every home and ideally, each Catholic student to adult should own a personal copy, kept within easy reach for frequent reading and meditation.

Catholic philanthropists and groups should see that pews and vestibules contain copies that people can browse before Mass and take home if needed.

You can even leave the Bible in hotels and other public places for people to find and read. They also make welcome donations to area churches and Catholic schools.

The New American Bible, Revised Edition is not sold by the Conference of Catholic Bishops, but rather you are recommended to find a copy at a Catholic bookseller. Fortunately, Catholic Shopping .com now has 500 copies in inventory, recently arrived. These Bibles are now available for you to purchase at a very small price with deeper discounts for bulk orders.

The Bible is the single most important book in Christendom. There is nothing that is required reading more than the Word of God. It is recommended that Catholic read their scriptures at a minimum of weekly, working their way through the various books. The Gospel is a great place to start if one does not want to work their way from Genesis through to Revelation.

If you already have an older copy of the Catholic Bible, consider updating to the Revised Edition, which has some updates for clarity. Scholars have used the latest research as well as the Dead Sea Scrolls to fully revise the Old Testament. They have also updated the Psalter to read more smoothly. Of course, the context and meanings remain intact, it's just easier to read and understand as ever.

Owning the most accurate Bible that fits the vernacular is important for sharing and understanding.

In addition to those features, your new Bible will come with introductions and outlines for every book. There are also over 8,000 notes carefully written by the best scholars to help advance your understanding of important scriptures. This version also come with a complete cross-reference system and a list of readings for Sunday Mass, major feast days, and a weekday lectionary.

Please consider purchasing a copy for yourself, your home, and for others. The Bibles are full-sized and priced very low so the purchase of multiple copies is easy. For just about the price of a cup of fancy coffee you can have the Word of God at your fingertips.

Pope Francis has asked every Catholic to keep a copy of the Bible on hand to read during idle moments, just as he does. Let's follow his example and spread the faith, making disciples of all people. Get yours now!
