i am in a bible study and am using the 'catholic study bible' and a number of people are using the 'ignatius study bible' which is a very good translation of the original also has very good and extensive commentary. the only one that i have seen with more commentary is the 'navarre bible' you may want to look at the ignatius

You are most welcome. i first learned about the different versions at church. the priest was very invested in us reading from the correct bible and had a list of catholic bibles included with the church bulletin. Of course, that was AFTER I had already purchased a 2 year study bible (New International Version), which was very easy to read. The NAB is also eay to read.

Hello Andromeda1967,
Thank you for responding to my post. I just checked out that link and it gives very detailed descriptions of the different versions available. Thank you! I'm thinking now that I may want to read different versions over the course of study, but for now will start with the RSV-CE Bible I just got from Amazon. I got the Good News Bible (with the newsprint cover and stick figure drawings) when I was in high school too. I've always loved it, but realized it just didn't do for study. And it doesn't have the old testament.

The inductive study...well, I think it might be a Protestant thing, although Catholics go. They are very welcoming of different denominations to their study. I always thought, well, we believe all the same stuff, just have different ways of worshipping...but I know now it is more than that. Like the books we include in our Bible, our idea's of baptism, and the Virgin Mary. But the past two weeks we have been looking at "essential" and "non-essential" doctrines, and I do think that, overall, our differences are non-essential.

I took a drive up to La Sallette Shrine today in MA to check out the Bible's in their bookstore. They are all NAB Bibles, like yours. They had some good study guides, too. Seems like all the Morningstars around here have gone out of business - so online is the only place to go for a selection of Bible's. Thank you so much for your thoughts on this. : )

I have never heard of inductive bible study. I'll have to look that up. The catholic bibles are different in that our bibles have several books that are not included in non-catholic bibles but which the catholic church accepts as canonical. The following is a lonk on choosing a catholic bible: www.catholiccompany.com/blog/how-cho

. The kind you choose will come down to what you want: a word for word translation of the original text (like the New American Bible-which is what i have) or a meaning for meaning translation (like the Good news Bible--which is what I used in high school--very easy to understand). I use the NAB now because that is the version that the church gets their daily mass readings from. (By the way, some of the info I mentioned is from a book i have "Scripture 101: An intro to reading the bible". Whichever one you choose, i hope you stick with it and enjoy your studies!

Hello Everyone,

Has anyone out there heard of or tried the "Inductive Bible Study" method? I was invited to a study like this with a mixed group of Christian denominations (including a few Catholics). I really like it and then was looking to choose a study Bible. Something I learned is that the Catholic Bible is different from other Christian Bibles, including some books that the Protestant Reformers removed. I decided on an RSV-CE study Bible, but I wonder what other folks think about this choice, especially folks that may have participated in the inductive studies.

Thank you for sharing your insights and opinions....
