Love it for Life
Printed by a renowned printer in Italy, each Bible is constructed using Smythe sewing in the spine, rather than a glued spine. This means your Catholic Youth Bible has a durable, high-quality binding that will last through years of wear without cracking, breaking or losing pages. Smythe stitching is also more flexible, allowing pages to lay flat for easier reading.
Journey with The Church
The New American Bible, Revised Edition (NABRE) translation is the same as you hear at Mass in the United States. The Sunday Readings guide will help you find the right passages each Sunday.
The Being Catholic section provides a guide to core Catholic Beliefs, Attitudes, Practices, and Spirituality & Prayers.
