Coming this November from Our Sunday Visitor is a new devotional Bible called The Saints Devotional Bible. This should be a real delight for my Catholic customers. Here is the catalog description:
Since the early days of the church, believers have looked to the saints as examples and guides to living holy lives pleasing to God. Now the saints help illuminate Holy Scripture in The Saints Devotional Bible, NABRE version.
In this incredible resource you will find:
- The accuracy of the new NABRE translation
- Over 200 readings from the saints, including their own reflections, prayers, letters, and more
- The saints’ reflections broaden appreciation and understanding of old testament and new testament texts
- A twenty-part lesson on studying, praying, and living the Scriptures, with longer selections from the writings of the saints
- An easy-to-search list of themes that allow you to study topics of interest to you
- A calendar of saints and a list of patron saints
- Mini-biographies of all the saints whose selections are quoted
The Saints Devotional Bible is an excellent devotional aid for anyone who wants to study Sacred Scripture as well as be encouraged and enlightened by the wisdom of our brothers and sisters, the saints, who intercede for us every day!
The Saints Devotional Bible will be a paperback with 2174 pages and sell for $39.95. (I’m hoping we will see at least a hardcover edition as well.)
