In a bible study someone always seems to get lost, but with all of them with the same bible they are beginning to catch on and follow along. The footnotes are a good way for them to learn what life was like then, and they are able to relate to things in their own life better
I have used this edition of the New American Bible in my Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults (RCIA) classes. We provide a copy to each participant free of charge. I've found that they are very durable and, although the font is a bit small for my old eyes, I haven't received any complaints about the font from any of my RCIA users. The CBD price is super and combined with CBD customer service it's a great value.
I love this bible! Started using it years ago and when I wore the cover off, I even took the time to rebind it myself using thin cardboard and cloth. Had to many notes in it to transfer to another Bible! Explanations of the verses are awesome and in context. Fantastic study Bible for the price!
