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 edition features attractive Flexi binding in two-tone leatherette with decorative stitching, a smart gold blocked and heat burnished dove/flame design, gilt edges and red and gold ribbons. The Confirmation edition of the CTS New Catholic Bible is a great gift for young people receiving the Sacrament of Confirmation. Its compact size and familiar scriptural translation used in the readings at Mass make this a Bible that will be cherished on Confirmation day and beyond.
