New Bible is designed to make Catholics scripture-literate

JEFF CAVINS
Share

Based on Jeff Cavins’ system, the Great Adventure Catholic Bible presents the “big picture of salvation history.”

In a day and age when the image has gained a greater prominence over the written word, a Bible with just plain black text might not appeal to as many people as one might hope. Color coding, maps, timelines, articles and charts would go a long way in bringing the Word of God to life for many readers.

That’s what is promised by The Great Adventure Catholic Bible, newly published by Ascension Press.

In particular, the project aims to make Catholics more Bible-literate.

“As Catholics we’ve not had a culture of studying the Bible,” general editor Mary Healey told Crux. “Many Catholics were brought up with the idea that reading the Bible is something more Protestant. That’s actually a tremendous distortion that would have horrified St. Augustine or St. Thomas Aquinas, any of the fathers of our church or theologians of our history, who recognized scripture as the word of God and the soul of theology.”

Developed by Jeff Cavins, well known for The Great Adventure Bible Studies, the Great Adventure Catholic Bible attempts to present the “big picture of salvation history” and show how everything ties together. It uses the text of the Revised Standard Version—Second Catholic Edition.
