This Could be the Best NABRE Edition! 25 mai 2011
Par hobbyist-2006 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Cuir/luxe Achat vérifié
Although I hesitated to buy yet another bible, I felt truly attracted to these new Librosario bibles especially since they used the NABRE and carried apologetics inserts with them. I must beg the reader's indulgence since in this review I mentioned some aspects of Saint Benedict Press's (SBP) bible in comparison with Fireside's. I know that many people are fond of SBP bibles as I am.

Packaging: 10/10
Fireside put a lot of care in packaging their bible. It arrived in a box shrink wrapped in plastic and the bible inside was shrink wrapped too. It's a good, sturdy box design, with many informative data about the bible. When it comes to box design, I still think Saint Benedict Press wins but only by a bit.

Binding, Design and workmanship: 10/10
If you have any of the SBP's "Premium Ultrasoft" cover bibles, then you already know how soft this Fireside's "Endurahide" bound bible is. I don't know if this is glue-only or sewn-bind but from the looks of it, it appears to be made to last. The two-tone design of the cover gives a beautiful external look to the bible. The first pages contain the words "Printed In the United States of America." That should explain its very good material quality.

Cover Lettering and texture: 10/10
The designers did away with gold fillings in the embossed titles. Good for them! The shiny bits show only in the page edges just the way I prefer it. The cover also sports a very smooth leather-like texture instead of a plain surface.

Extras: 10/10
That the bible text must (and does) contain nihil obstat and imprimatur was expected. But a separate nihil obstat and imprimatur for the apologetics inserts? Thank you Fireside for this! We can read the apologetics confident that they are also free from errors on faith and morals. They placed the many colorful apologetics material strategically in the book depending on the subject. For example the topics regarding the Blessed Virgin and the Rosary can be found in Luke. What's more each apologetics page has a box at the bottom referencing relevant Scripture verses and paragraph numbers of the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Very thoughtful. If you haven't read much apologetics before, then you're in for a real treat!

Fireside put the weekday lectionary mass readings separately from the 3-year cycle Sunday mass readings. The page listing is so much clearer and easier to read than SBP's.Each Sunday reading list has page numbers to quickly get you to the location you want! The last piece of extra material at the back explains the meaning of the different sections of the mass while the front contains among others, background information on the bible and the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation. This is so far the neatest organization of front and back extra matters of the bible I have yet seen.

New American Bible Revised Edition (NABRE) Text: 10/10
I like my NAB and I like my NABRE even better. You simply have to read the newly revised Old Testament to appreciate it. The introduction says that this new OT is more literal than the previous edition. I agree. Although not advertised as a study bible, the NABRE (including the NAB) contains cross-references, copious notes and alternate readings of many verses, concise book introductions, chapter titles and subtitles... just about the most important study aids one needs to study the bible in one volume. It does not contain concordance and maps, and no words of Jesus in red though so these might be issues for you.

Margins: -/-
I never write anything in my bible, other than my name on the presentation page. But I am aware some folks write notes in their bible. The margins here are your normal book margins. You can write some notes on it. For me though the white space in the margins act to organize the text and make it comfortable to the eyes.

Font Size: 8/10
While advertised as Large Print, it does not appear to be so. If you compare this side by side with a Saint Benedict Press Large Print Bible (RSV-CE, for example) the SPB's Large Print font is definitely larger. However, Fireside's isn't tiny either, just smaller than SBP's. I suppose they have different standards for what is Large Print. The size of the notes font is of course smaller than the main text which is not a problem if you are already using reading glasses.

Page Opacity: 9/10
This is bible paper and its not really totally opaque, as you would expect from any bible. Yet for such a material, Fireside's bible paper holds up relative opacity very well. One of the best in this respect. I don't get distracted with prints on the other page.

Librosario: 10/10
From pictures alone, I didn't give much stock to the usefulness of the embossed Rosary at the back besides being a fine decoration. To my surprise there is no mistaking which Rosary "bead" my fingertips rest. So yes, you can pray the Rosary with it!

Well-thought design, neat and physically beautiful, it does justice to the books of the bible within. Great apologetics inserts certified by Church authorities to be free from doctrinal errors. I thank God I live at a time where I can enjoy beautifully bound Catholic bibles. Yet I would dare speculate that it would be a rare case, indeed, if another NABRE offering can top Fireside's edition. Highly recommended!

Additional info as of June 03, 2011:

I purchased both the black/tan and burgundy separately, the latter of which arrived only a few days ago. Exact same bible except for the burgundy cover which is a tad shinier than the black/tan. While the black/tan price fluctuates between US40 and U$44, the burgundy seem to stabilize at U$46 which is the price I purchased it. In any case, both bibles are well worth every penny- even with all the other expenses I paid ordering them from outside the US. (I am not in anyway affiliated with the publisher or amazon.com).

The Perfect NABRE 28 juillet 2011
Par John Blake - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Cuir/luxe Achat vérifié
This Fireside Catholic Answer Bible is lovely, the minute you take it in your hand you can see the wonderful job Fireside have done.

It has a beautiful soft cover, on the front is a small Cross, below is 'The New Catholic Answer Bible' and near the bottom is 'NAB Revised Edition'. On the back cover is a full Rosary Beads embossed on the cover and you can easly follow the beads along with your fingers. Fireside also states its a stitched cover.

Inside is a presentation page, contents, Index of the special Catholic Answer inserts, Dogmatic Constitution of Vat.2, List of OT and NT books, A detailed article 'Origin, Inspiration and History of the Bible'. At the back, Mass readings and section on the parts of the Mass. No maps,though.

The Answer part of this Bible is special one page inserts distributed throughout, answering questions like 'Are Catholics Born Again? or 'Was Mary Sinless?
So theres some questions answered that may be discussed among Catholics or with Protestants.
These inserts are beautifully produced in brown-purple colour with a small drawing in the top corner showing the topic (I like the one of Saint Paul vigorously showing has point of view in the 'Did Paul Challenge Peters Authority' insert).

It is better,(IMO), then the Saint Benedict Press Ultrasoft NABRE in a lot of ways, for example:

-SBP used to have a lovely soft material in their ultrasoft covers, The SBP NABRE has a harder plastic like cover.

-Unlike SBP ultrasoft, this Bible has great text layout, plenty of whitespace at the inner margins.

-Also this Fireside Bible opens very well allowing easier reading, also unlike SBP NABRE Ultra.

Overall a beautiful Bible, as near to perfect as possible.

Great New Translation 29 juin 2011
Par James - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Cuir/luxe Achat vérifié
This is the best translation into American English to date. If you want to read Scripture and understand what God is saying, this is the translation for you. Additionally, this pseudo leather bound edition is durable and the text is easy to read and well footnoted.

Beware the Burgundy 7 février 2014
Par St. Corbinians's Bear - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
I have the Burgundy cover. The fake leather seems to be a very thin layer applied over what appears to be a thin pasteboard piece. (You can see this quite easily when you examine the cover.) The cover is so thin the corners curl up when the book is resting on the table. And not just a little, either, but nearly two inches. It just looks cheap. This is not an inexpensive Bible, so decide whether this would be a problem for you. Now my wife has the same Bible, but black, and hers doesn't have this problem.

UPDATE: Fireside advises their burgundy covers dried out, causing the curling. It is not yet known if it affects the new batch. It does not affect the black with the tan backs, which look nicer, anyway in my opinion. Fireside is sending me a black replacement for free.

As to everything else, I agree with the 5-star posts. The feel of the cover is nice: warm and inviting. The embossed rosary may look like a gimmick, but I'm surprised at how often I end up using it. The print is very easy to read without making you feel that you have had to resort to an actual large-print Bible. The paper is not overly thin, so it does not feel delicate or allow the shadow of text from the flip side. The apologetics insets are a good idea for "ecumenical dialogue." The size is a bit bigger than most Bibles, but still handy and easy to take along.

The translation is very readable, though with the occasional clunker like Adam having "sexual intercourse" with Eve and frequent references to "resident aliens" which sounds like something from a federal census form to me. The Psalms are particularly nice. It does not impose "inclusive language" like the NRSV. Often I have compared a passage from the NABRE to the Douay Rheims, the RSVCE, or the NRSV only to find the NABRE sounds better to me. Truth is, these are all excellent Bibles in my opinion, but I keep coming back to the NABRE in part because it is the Catholic Bible for our times and the one most U.S. Catholics who read the Bible are going to have. There is no perfect translation.

The notes reflect a somewhat dated scholarly consensus which will either scream Modernism or seem groovy, depending on your Catholic sensibilities. Most are helpful, but let the reader beware. (That's not Fireside's fault; the USCCB won't let the NABRE be published without them.)

I think this is easily the best NABRE on the market and a joy to use.

This bible is an amazing teaching tool for all Catholics or anyone wishing to understand scripture and Catholic doctrine. Easy to read and understand.
