    I was so Blessed to find the Ignatius Bible..I would go in to Veratis in Dublin each week looking for a Bible & every week i'd leave empty handed. It was truly painful. So i decided to look online & found this Bible & i was able to read some passages before buying. I wanted a Bible that i would enjoy reading & learning from, but also a Bible that i could use to help other's who were having problems with certain teaching's of the Church.-SO MY BIBLE WOULD HAVE TO BE EXACT WHEN IT CAME THE MARIAN DOCTRINES. It pains me to see in the NRSV," Hail, O, Highly favoured one"..A lot of Bishop's we see on TV in recent year's have the Ignatius Bible tucked under the arm..I would also suggest the DIDACHE BIBLE, as it uses the very same translation but also includes over 100 pages of APOLOGETICS. Writings from the Church Father's & also the Apostolic Father's, going back to the 1st century & defending Catholic Teaching-(THIS IS SO POWERFUL). included also is the many quotes from the catechism..I find it an amazing Bible for evangelization or as a gift to someone entering the Church and for my own reading up on the saints & their view which is to this day the very same--HOW AWESOME IS THIS..

    The Bible text and study notes are excellent! I can't wait for this bible to be complete. The essays, cross-references and notes are very helpful for studying. What I do not like about this Logos version is no Greek or Hebrew Interlinear is available for it. For a Study Bible, that kind of puts a limit on its usefulness as such. It would be nice if we could return a product after purchase if it didn't meet our expectations within 30 or so minutes like at Google Play. This Bible is worth keeping none the less.

    I'm almost finished with the print edition of the NT and have found it to be much better then the Navarre commentary. This is a great resource! The only thing is I see the authors, Scott Hahn in particular, seems to be a little reserved, which is understandable, in that he leaves a lot of amazing information out that you get from listening to and reading his free online study courses at the website. What I've found to be particularly helpful is the Word Study sections which give a fuller understanding of the culture undoing "chronological snobbery" as C.S. Lewis called it.

    One of the best features of the commentary is the “Icon Annotations”. These three icons (Book, Dove and Keys) represent the Catholic Church’s three criteria for interpretation of Sacred Scripture, and are used to distinguish what a note represents. The Book represents the “content and unity” of Scripture. The Dove represents the “Living Tradition” of the Church. The “Keys” represent the analogy of faith. Also, the commentary on Scripture in this book is not just the personal opinion of the authors (they are really editors). The commentary is mainly a collection and editing of the teaching and understanding of the Church, for some 2000 years, from Popes, Councils, and Saints, especially the Doctors of the Church and early Church Fathers. This is a excellent book that will help anyone, Bible beginner or expert learn more about The Word of God.

    Will this include the rest of the OT books when or as they are released? Or will those require an additional purchase?

    This is a MUST-HAVE resource for all Catholics. Do whatever you need to do, miss meals if you need to, but set aside funds and make sure that you purchase this. You will not ever regret purchasing it.
