Product Description

•••••
This Bible comes in a protection box. (Additionally, the shipping packaging will be nondescript.)

Sorry, no gift wrapping is available.

Read the Bible like never before, wrapped in 2,000 years of insight, art, and tradition. 

Four years in the making, The Word on Fire Bible is a groundbreaking new series introducing readers to the strange, colorful world of the Bible.

It was designed to appeal not just to Christians but to non-believers, searchers, and those with far more questions than answers. It doesn't presume any experience with the Bible, catering to those unfamiliar with its many events and characters, while still providing rich insights to even the most biblically literate.

It's a cathedral in print, the highest-quality Catholic Bible ever produced for mass distribution.

Inside this first volume of the series, you'll find the four Gospels surrounded by illuminating artwork and helpful commentary from Bishop Robert Barron, the Church Fathers, and some of the greatest saints, mystics, artists, and scholars throughout history, allowing the story of Jesus Christ to shine with new clarity and splendor.

You'll discover insights from John Chrysostom, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, John Henry Newman, G.K. Chesterton, Thérèse of Lisieux, Fulton Sheen, John Paul II, and many other teachers in the way of the Spirit.

The translation used in The Word on Fire Bible is the New Revised Standard Version: Catholic Edition (NRSV-CE), which has received wide acclaim from academics and Church leaders. It stands out because of its accuracy and readability, being as literal as possible yet as free as necessary to make the meaning clear in graceful, understandable English. It’s a wonderful translation—both for those who have never read the Bible and for those who have studied it for years.

Word on Fire Bible

We are extremely pleased with the Word on Fire Bible as well as the timely delivery. Thank you for your excellent service.
Extraordinary way of presenting the Gospels
(Montreal) | May 28th, 2021
I received this volume as a gift from a Catholic friend. As other reviewers have noted, the physical quality of the volume, from the binding to the quality of the art reproductions to the choice of fonts, is exceptional - a true labor of love. Although not a Roman Catholic myself (though I grew up in that tradition), but rather an Anglican, I have also found the commentaries very illuminating - even though I have been an adult Christian for 40 years and have read fairly widely from various forms of Christian literature over the years. Robert Barron's commentaries, which represent 80% or more of the commentary content in the volume, are often, to my mind, quite profound, yet very clearly expressed. (The others, often from Bishop Fulton Sheen or GK Chesterton, are also good.) The selection of art works chosen to illustrate the Gospels is also wonderful - sometimes unexpected yet always apt. The commentaries on the art are succinct yet also illuminating, giving us another way - in part the Via Pulchritudinis, the Way of Beauty - of apprehending the Gospels. I have no reservation at all in recommending this volume. I gave a copy to my daughter and son-in-law, both practicing Anglicans, as a special gift recently, and am considering ordering further copies as gifts for others including non-Catholics.
Amazing
(Waasis NB Canada) | May 5th, 2021
Stunning. As a student of the classics, I love having the artwork integrated with the Bible text, along with corresponding writings by Bishop Barron and other notable theologians throughout history. It helps to really flesh out the text as well as deepen one's knowledge of Catholic theology.
Word on Fire Leather Bible
(Ontario, Canada) | March 4th, 2021
What a masterpiece! Everything about this Bible is absolutely magnificent. The quality of the leather cover, the gold leaf, the paper feels like silk, the art work is beautiful and let’s not forget Bishop Barron’s commentary is so helpful. Great addition to my collection.

Hopefully I will receive a great benefit from reading the Gospels in this format.
