Our Parish uses this bible with our Sacrament Prep Families. They are given Scripture to read each week and discuss with their children as part of their preparation for First Reconciliation/Communion. I love this bible, offers great opportunity to meet families where they are and communicates in a way that is useful and insightful without paraphrasing as some translations do!
The Catholic Family Connections Bible is beautiful and so well done! A worthy companion to The Catholic Youth Bible. Catholic parishes and families have been waiting for a Bible like this.
