Beautiful Bible.

Christian Benedict
A pearl of great price

The Bible I have longed for, since my conversion to the Catholic faith 10 years ago. But nobody ever told me this bible existed. This rich, beautiful and extremely comprehensive Bible is the must-own for any serious individual or family, who takes their Catholic faith seriously. Not only the amount of commentaries from the Church fathers, but also the appendix, glossaries, the brief history on the creation of the books of the Bible, are superb. This traditional bible also assumes the traditional view of creation, in contrast to the evolutionism that affects the faith and mind of many in the modern world. The perfect Bible for homeschoolers, home-catechisers, converts, discerners - perfect for all Catholics who wish to know the one, true Catholic and apostolic faith.

An excellent way to help study the word of God

First off, AngelusPress shipped this book fast via UPS and it was very well packaged, thank you!

The Haydock Bible is a very helpful resource to better understanding the Catholic (universal) teachings of Holy scripture, as prescribed by Jesus Christ through his One, Holy, Catholic, and Apostolic Church. For instance, there are numerous prophecies in scripture and it's helpful to understand how they relate to today.

As we study the word of the Lord, we will better increase our faith.
For the Apostle Paul said that we ought to study the faith, so that we're well grounded and rooted in the teachings of Jesus Christ (see 2 Timothy 2:15).

Also increasing in prayer is necessary, for we ought to pray the Rosary daily and if possible the full 15 decade rosary, so that we may draw nearer to Christ and better examine our conscience daily.
