The principal annotator and associate editor of the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible, Curtis Mitch, wrote this:
"The new Great Adventure Catholic Bible is a thing of beauty. There's no other way to describe it.
The layout of the biblical text is wonderfully readable; its teaching enhancements, which give Catholics needed help in grasping the grand story of salvation history, are superb; and even the maps and charts are visually stunning.
Everything about this Bible says "read me!" Hats off to Jeff Cavins and his team for pouring their gifts and talents into this fabulous new resource. This is not a book you'll want in your library; it's a book you'll want in your hands!"
