“Once a generation a truly unique Bible tool is given to the Church. The Ignatius Study Bible is a gift for our generation. This is the most important book since the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Every parish study group and every student of Sacred Scripture should own and use this Bible.”
— David Currie - Author, Born Fundamentalist, Born Again Catholic
“The Ignatius Study Bible is a triumph of both piety and scholarship in the best Catholic tradition: simply the most useful succinct commentary that any Christian or other interested person could hope for.”
— Erasmo Leiva, Author, Fire of Mercy, Heart of the Word
"I am often asked to recommend a study Bible for Catholics, but I have never been able to do so without reservation... until now! At last there is a Catholic study Bible that has all of the things you need for an ideal Scripture study experience: a literal version of the biblical text so that you can grasp details that otherwise would be lost in translation, study helps that are theologically orthodox, introductions that respect Christian tradition instead of presenting the ideas of secular biblical scholarship as if they were gospel truth, a faith-building rather than faith-subverting perspective, plus copious notes, word studies, essays, charts, maps, and indexes to help you get the most out of God's word. Trust me. The Ignatius Catholic Study Bible New Testament is the one you've been waiting for!"
— Jimmy Akin, author of The Salvation Controversy, and Catholic Answers
