conformity with the Church's translation guidelines, the New Catholic
Version is intended to be used by Catholics for daily prayer and
meditation, as well as private devotion and group study as an
alternative to other translations currently available. This faithful,
reader-friendly translation of the New Testament was prepared by the
same team as the NCV Psalms released in 2002 and widely acclaimed for
its readability and copious, well-written, and informative footnotes.
The volume offers many recognizable St. Joseph edition
including easy-to-read type, nearly 40 black-and-white photos
full-page illustrations, an Analytical Index, a Liturgical Index of
the Sunday Gospels, Readings for the Major Feasts of the Year, the
Miracles of Jesus, the Parables of Jesus, as well as a map of the
Journeys of St. Paul. This is a convenient New Testament for those
who wish to carry a copy in a pocket or purse.
