Most Bibles contain footnotes and cross references, as well as introductory essays that introduce the respective biblical book. Some versions are called 'Study Bibles' and include lengthy essays in the front of the volume. While The Little Rock Catholic Study Bible contains customary introductory information written by several well-know scripture scholars, it has placed explicit study information on the page where the specific reference is found. Such study material includes definitions of terms and ideas, information about various characters, archaeological findings, relevant Church teachings, hints for personal prayer, and links with liturgical celebration. Pictures, charts, and related lists are also strategically placed throughout. All one needs for the initial study of the Bible is found within the pages of this remarkable volume.Dianne Bergant, CSA, Professor of Old Testament Studies, Catholic Theological Union
What I like about the Little Rock Catholic Study Bible is everything, especially the way the Bible is presented for easy helps and guides. For someone like me, who spends a lot of time with God's word for teachings, homilies, and prayer, the footnotes, scripture references, charts and maps have made it so easy to enter into God's word. I feel the Little Rock Catholic Study Bible has given me a renewed interest and a deeper appreciation for the power of God's word in my life. The reason I wanted my parishioners here to use the Little Rock Catholic Study Bible is to find the blessings in spending time with God's word. I believe once they could see and began to use the Little Rock Catholic Study Bible they would discover the many blessings that await the heart of one who enters into God's presence through his word. Many times I hear from parishioners who say they have a hard time understanding God's word, or rarely do they pray using God's word. I believe the Little Rock Ca
This is an outstandingly helpful resource. It offers both a window and a mirror into Sacred Scripture. It draws us in, speaks to our hearts, and compels us to act as disciples. A must for all groups that gather around Scripture.Donna L. Ciangio, OP

Those entering upon the field of Bible study consistently have a question on their lips: 'What is a good Bible for Bible study?' Recent years have seen a wide variety of publishers offer a broad collection of Bibles, often with supplementary information accompanying the biblical texts. This development bears witness to the incredible fruitfulness of ongoing interest in Bible study by believers whose appetite for learning and deepening understanding of the sacred texts is certain evidence of the work of the Spirit.
With the advent of the Little Rock Catholic Study Bible comes the joining together of wonderful scholarship, insightful and thought-provoking connections to life, ministry and practice of the faith, as well as the unparalleled experience of developing suitable materials for adults engaged in Bible study.
This extraordinary confluence of Bible study resources has resulted in a wonderful addition to the cor
With its readable translation, lucid introductory essays, informative notes, and rich commentaries, Little Rock Catholic Study Bible is now easily the best didactic tool for Catholics to learn about the Bible not only as a historical and literary document but also as the inspired Word of God. A fruit of many years of collaborative work by eminent biblical scholars, this Bible is now placed in the hands of Christians, Catholics, and non-Catholics alike, so that their minds and hearts may be formed and nurtured by the ways God has spoken and acted in history. The Church owes a great debt to these scholars and Liturgical Press for bringing out this Bible. Thanks to their monumental labor the renewal of the church as envisaged by Vatican II, especially in its dogmatic constitution on Divine Revelation, will be brought a step closer to fulfillment.Dr. Peter C.

A prophet proclaimed, 'When I found your words I devoured them; they became my joy and the happiness of my heart' (Jeremiah 15:16). What a wonderful gift the Little Rock Catholic Study Bible is for the People of God, especially those who hunger for God but are puzzled or intimidated by God's Word. Clear background information, explanations, and charts throughout its pages help make the Word of God palatable for modern readers. In addition, pictures of the holy sites, like seasoning, make Scripture more appealing; and prayer starters encourage savoring it. By feasting at the table of the Word as presented in this study Bible, readers will be drawn to Jesus, who is the ultimate Word and source of eternal joy.Mary Kathleen Glavich, SND
