Ignatius Press RSV Ignatius Catholic Study Bible New Testament 2nd Edition, Leatherbound

The only Catholic Study Bible based on the Revised Standard Version 2nd Catholic Edition, the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible New Testament brings together all of the books of the New Testament and the penetrating study tools developed by renowned Bible teachers Dr. Scott Hahn and Curtis Mitch.

This volume presents the written Word of God in a highly readable, accurate translation, excellent for personal and group study. Extensive study notes, topical essays and word studies provide fresh and faithful insights informed by time-tested, authentically Catholic interpretations from the Fathers of the Church and other scholars. Commentaries include the best insights of ancient, medieval and modern scholarship, and follow the Church's guidelines for biblical interpretation. Plus, each New Testament book is outlined and introduced with an essay covering questions of authorship, date of composition, intended audience and general themes. The Ignatius Study Bible also includes handy reference materials such as a doctrinal index, a concise concordance, a helpful cross-reference system, and various maps and charts.

Dr. Scott Hahn is known for his remarkable intellect and knowledge of the Scriptures. His extensive study notes set this Study Bible apart from all others.
This is a collection or library of NT books that are accurately interpretated and fully explained for study so everyone can expierence the Holy Spirit through His word.
God Bless Scott Hahn and his staff for this great study Bible.

... but, if you are looking for a class-room type textbook rather than informative footnotes, this is for you.

This is a cross between a NT Study Bible and a very well laid out one volume commentary, with the NT text prominently at the top. This has more extensive footnotes than the NIV Study Bible, primarily historical, linguistic, and scriptural. It has good introductions to each NT book and is interspersed with many extended features and discussions of important topics. It has a pretty extensive concordance and a few color maps in the back.
This looks to be great for both personal study and for small groups.
If you are Catholic, this is a phenomenal resource - it doesn't get any better than this. If you a non-Catholic evangelical, you will still find this to be a phenomenal resource. More than 90% of this book will remind you of the kind of information evangelical commentators would provide. The remaining 10% involve comments drawn from Church Fathers and the Catholic Catechism.

INCREDIBLE! Such food for the soul with notes from tradition and the catechism. You'll know that you're reading things and comprehending them in line with the church. This is such a treasure!
