The New Jerusalem Bible is the most popular English-language Catholic Bible in the world, outside the U.S.A.
The New Jerusalem Bible contains the complete text of the ancient canon of scripture, along with up-to-date and extensive introductions and notes. Eight pages of color maps and indexes, including biblical themes, personal names, and major footnotes.
The New Jerusalem edition of the Bible is the most widely recognized throughout the universal Church outside of the United States. First published in 1985, it is based on the French edition of the Dominicans of the Ecole Biblique in Jerusalem, which was translated directly from authentic Hebrew, Greek, and Aramaic texts. Its passages are characterized by a moderate balance of literary and inclusive language. This same version of the Bible was the one referred to by Mother Angelica throughout her television series.
