Confused about which Bible to choose? Bewildered by all the different choices? Here is a Bible tailor-made for every Catholic. It will lead you through the exact same English texts that the Church uses at each Mass, with notes and introductions edited by Vatican expert Dom Henry Wansbrough OSB. CTS has created several carefully thought-out editions to suit every need and budget. 

This paperback edition of the CTS New Catholic Bible is our most affordable full-size Bible, made for everyday usage. Simply yet beautifully bound, the cover flaps increase the durability of the volume, as well as having a contents list of the books of the Bible printed on them for easy search and reference.

This is the bible that i have been searching for over many years. It is small but the print is a perfect size to read when on the move.This bible feels very comfortable in the hand, due to the extremely soft leather effect binding. It literally can fit into a coat pocket so describing it as compact is very accurate. I have used this on my travels and shall continue to carry it with me wherever i go. The only drawback is that it is not available to buy directly from Amazon, but i persevered and found a retailer. I am very happy with my purchase.
