There is a growing desire among Catholics to read the Bible and to find inspiration and wisdom for their daily lives. Yet there is no Bible that brings Catholic families and the Bible together. Developed in partnership with the Center for Ministry Development and Our Sunday Visitor, recognized leaders in Catholic youth and family ministry, The Catholic Faith and Family Bible is designed to make the Bible easier to read and understand for the everyday Catholic family, helping parents and children grow in faith together. This message is brought to life through more than a thousand notes and articles such as:
- Act On It!--encourages families to engage in something active that the biblical passage may inspire, such as works of mercy and justice.
- Make the Connection--offers important facts about the Bible and shows how the Bible is relevant to Catholic family life today.

- Pray the Word--offers simple prayers for the family to pray together.
- Take It to Heart--invites families to reflect on a biblical passage and discover God's message for their lives.

The Catholic Faith and Family Bible is sure to become a welcome part of your family life and a cherished keepsake for years to come.
