That is not a bad price for the Little Rock, it's actually even cheaper than what I paid for the e-book edition.

No Bible shopping this year for me. I've been told that there are now too many:
2 Douay Rheims (1Tan, 1PJ Kennedy)
1 Confraternity Bible
1 Confraternity NT
2 Knox (Baronius and Sheed)
1 Jerusalem
2 RSV2 (Didache and Iggy study)
1 RSV2 Pocket NT
1 Little Rock Study bible

I mean, I can certainly see the need to add a few more, I can't figure out why she doesn't.

Something SPECIAL coming your way Tim?! Hmmm... either a fancy rebind of a personal favorite, or a review copy of a new Bible... either way looking forward to the surprise!

TS said...

Here's what I want to buy: a Roman Missal with Knox substituted readings! Ha.

Preach it!

No new Bible related stuff for me. I finished an entire reading of the NABRE and recently started the same with The Jerusalem Bible Study Edition.

Timothy said...

Very cool about reading through the NABRE. If you were interested, I'd love to post something from you concerning your experience reading the NABRE straight through.

Unknown said...

I'd like to, but my mother fell three weeks ago, with multiple fractures, and I don't think I could organize enough thoughts worthy of this blog.

I will say though:
It's a translation that has definite good points.

The Old Testament is an improvement over previous editions of the NAB, BUT, so far I think the book of Genesis is much better in The Jerusalem Bible. This could be a preference for a more dynamic equivalence translation. I've noticed a leaning in that direction, especially when reading the letters of St. Paul.

Well....maybe a few thoughts can be organized after all. LOL

Sorry to hear about your mom. Hope she has a speedy recovery.

No rush on the post, either. Even if they are random ideas.

Unknown said...

Thank you Tim.
I would like to contribute in some way. A full read through of the NABRE was a positive experience.
