THE NEW TESTAMENT
This is a fresh, new translation of the entire New Testament (the Four Gospels, the Acts of the Apostles, the Letters of St. Paul, the Catholic Letters, the Letter to the Hebrews and the Book of Revelation) in modern, vernacular English from the original Greek. Approved by the National Conference of Catholic Bishops, this edition of the Word of God is eminently suited for personal spiritual enlightenment and would make an ideal gift for Confirmation, Graduation, Christmas, Easter and Other Special Occasions.
With each page designed and printed in full color on special paper stock, the New Testament boasts over 200 full-color illustrations of art, architecture and archaeology along with several 4-color maps. Additional features include brief, readable, pertinent introductions to each book, footnotes to enlighten more difficult passages and cross references to biblical citations. Passages reflecting a poetic format in the original Greek for easier memorization have been retained in the English, and Old Testament passages quoted in the New are rendered in bold face type. There is likewise a Glossary of Terms used in the text that may not be readily familiar to the reader.
