We recommend this series for both the serious Biblical scholar and the average layperson who wants to get more out of reading and praying the Scriptures. The commentary draws from a great number of sources including early Christian authors, Eastern and Western fathers of the Church, Vatican II and the Catechism of the Catholic Church, as well as prominent spiritual writers, which help to explain the text and its application to daily life. The text of the Scripture includes the full English text of the Revised Standard Edition (RSV) along with all the RSV notes.
The New Testament Expanded Edition is the latest edition of the Navarre Bible and includes extensive Catholic commentary for the entire New Testament all in one beautiful volume. It has wide-ranging general introductions, individual book introductions, a table of sources cited, maps, and informative notes.
The Old Testament volumes include the Biblical texts in Latin and English in addition to the commentary which is designed to elucidate the spiritual and theological message of the Bible.
These commentaries are easy to read and use and are a great tool for you to grow in the spiritual life.
