The New American Bible is the most popular Catholic translation available in the U.S. and is now being revised for the first time in 20 years. The revision aims at making use of the best manuscript traditions available, translating as accurately as possible and rendering the result in good contemporary English. In many ways it is a more literal translation than the original New American Bible.
In addition to the translation itself, the NAB provides helpful introductions to the books of the Bible as well as authorized running notes explaining the teachings, background, and literary context for the passages, making it an unparalleled resource for Bible readers.

Terry DunnTorontoAge: 55-65Gender: Male5 Stars Out Of 5LITERARY, ACCURATE, AND READABLEFebruary 27, 2014Terry DunnTorontoAge: 55-65Gender: MaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The NABRE is an excellent translation done by Catholic (and some protestant) Scholars.
Regardless of one's faith tradition, this review focuses on the NABRE translation itself not the translators. As a translation, the NABRE is without a doubt "a magnificent translation". It is more literal and literary than NIV 2011 and takes a more balanced approach to gender language that is more in line with the original Hebrew and Greek.
The annotations factor in critical scholarship but pay close attention to historic Christian faith. For example, annotations on Gen 3:15; Psalm 2; Psalm 110; Is 7:14; Is 53 all point to Christ. Christ Himself indicated that all Scripture points to Him as Messiah (see John 5:39).
Finally, the NABRE includes the Deuterocanonical books which were accepted by most Christians until the Reformation. I highly recommend the NABRE for its accuracy and literary power!
NeilSafford, AZAge: 45-54Gender: male4 Stars Out Of 5Pretty decent constructionDecember 24, 2013NeilSafford, AZAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 4Value: 4Meets Expectations: 5Yes, it is smyth sewn. The paper quality and printing is good althought the pages are a bit on the thin side. The size is managable -- not too big. Thicker pages would mean thicker book; and it's thick enough already.
I wanted this book so that I could consider having it re-bound in a different material. With this ambition in mind, rounded page corners would be nice. Maybe I could have that done during the rebinding.
The maps in the back are pretty and helpful.
