Shelfari edited the description of The New American Bible Wednesday, January 27, 2010.
This style of the New American Bible offers readers a varied selection of binding and color options from which they may choose - and all at extremely competitive prices. It is the perfect size for students, commuters, hospital visitors, and anyone that needs a compact, high quality NAB. The Compact Edition features a Presentation Section (all except the paperback), the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation (Dei Verbum), placement of the NAB notes at the end of each book to enhance the readability of the biblical text, a select NAB Concordance, an essay on using the Lectionary, a table of Weekday and Sunday Lectionary readings, and a table of Weights and Measures in the Bible. Bound in a stylish black-on-burgundy "basketweave" binding that overlaps the book's spine.
