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!"

The New Adventure Catholic Bible

We ordered this bible for our daughter as a gift. She wanted something easy to understand and written in today’s language. After we checked it out, I ended up ordering one for my husband as well, and we’re thinking of ordering one for his sister for Christmas. I can see why they were sold out for so long.

Inspiring and functional Bible

The Great Adventure Bible is comforting to hold and truly functional as I listen to the Bible in a Yesr podcast from AscensionPress.

Extensive Review from a regular Catholic (not a Bible scholar)

I received this when the batch in June was shipped. I ordered it with the Great Adventure Bible Tabs. After spending some time using it, I can say that I couldn't be happier.

From the moment I placed the order right up until it was delivered to me, the process couldn't have been easier, more timely, gone more smoothly, nor been better executed. There were no difficulties, everything arrived in great condition and customer service perfectly met my needs. Thank you Catholic Supply of St. Louis, Inc. for your stellar work.

Regarding the Bible itself, I absolutely LOVE it. It must be said though that anyone looking into buying a Bible should first think about what they'd like to receive from their Bible. My purpose and expectations in buying this one revolved around getting to know THE story of salvation history, with some relevant background information included. This Bible is turning out to really be excellent for that purpose. The articles and key events are very helpful to me for reading, reviewing and remembering it all, and the Timeline is genius! It helps a lot that the entire Bible is colour coded to the system.

The Bible Tabs colours are meticulously matched up to the Colour-coded Timeline as well and they are beautiful, much like the entire Bible. They were moderately easy to affix to the pages after I used the excess tabs to practice adhering them to a scrap bit of paper. They required a bit of patience, but I'm very happy I bought them as even with the Bible closed, I can see where each book falls into the larger picture. The colours, together with the names of the books, provide me with visual cues as to what occured in each book.

Pricey, but well done to the Ascension Team who put this together. It is an investment in my spiritual life that I'm delighted I made.
