Four years in the making,The Word on Fire Bibleis a groundbreaking new series introducing readers to the strange, colorful world of the Bible.
It was designed to appeal not just to Christians but to non-believers, searchers, and those with far more questions than answers. It doesn't presume any experience with the Bible, catering to those unfamiliar with its many events and characters, while still providing rich insights to even the most biblically literate.
It's a cathedral in print, the highest-quality Catholic Bible ever produced for mass distribution.
Inside this first volume of the series,you'll find the four Gospels surrounded by illuminating artwork and helpful commentary from Bishop Robert Barron, the Church Fathers, and some of the greatest saints, mystics, artists, and scholars throughout history, allowing the story of Jesus Christ to shine with new clarity and splendor.
You'll discover insights from John Chrysostom, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, John Henry Newman, G.K. Chesterton, Thérèse of Lisieux, Fulton Sheen, John Paul II, and many other teachers in the way of the Spirit.
The translation used inThe Word on Fire Bibleis theNew Revised Standard Version: Catholic Edition (NRSV-CE), which has received wide acclaim from academics and Church leaders. It stands out because of its accuracy and readability, being as literal as possible yet as free as necessary to make the meaning clear in graceful, understandable English. It’s a wonderful translation—both for those who have never read the Bible and for those who have studied it for years.
Marc was very solicitous in satisfying my order. He had a product which is hard to find. He was kind enough to offer to cancel my shipping charge because of an initial delay which caused a little confusion.
Beautiful elegant material and lace. My grandson loves it. We have not had it altered to his size yet, because he has the two laced surplices I bought in your store which are still in very good condition. Perhaps we can wait till my grandson grows taller and “fatter” so we don’t have to have the budded surplice altered.
