Product Description

Each edition of The Word on Fire Bible: The Gospels features text in a 9pt font, which is larger than in most other Bibles, with significant line spacing to allow for an easier reading experience.
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.

Amazing amazing amazing!
(Lloydminster) | June 30th, 2022
We had already purchased a leather version of the Word on Fire bible when it first came out and we love it so much. The content is just so rich! I typically struggle with the commentary in most bibles, THIS bible, however, is overflowing with very approachable yet deep and meaningful commentary that really helps to unpack the gospels beautifully. We purchased this hardcover version as a gift for a priest and we didn't realize until receiving it that the hardcover binding is the same as their Word on Fire Classics books. It is such a well crafted and beautiful, simple, binding! I highly recommend this bible! The quality far exceeds the price point!

Beautiful book with quality commentary!
Simply amazing.

I have to admit. I have never read the gospels cover to cover. The old cliché “The Lord works in mysterious ways” fits in this case. As simple as it maybe, the essay describing the cover artwork was extremely insightful, and brought me to tears. I just put the book down, after chapter 4 of Matthew, and I can’t wait to resume reading. That’s a first for me. All the commentary brings the actual scripture to life in way fictional authors write “page-turners” that keep the reader wanting more. God Bless Bishop Barron for this amazing project.
The Way of Beauty

The most visceral of the transcendentals, Beauty puts us in immediate touch with God. This book of the Gospels is beautiful. It is also full of Truth and Goodness, but they come under the banner of Beauty to whisper to hardened hearts in language irresistible. An excellent choice for a Confirmation gift.

The way it is structured, the commentary that supports the text and the way it was marketed are the reasons I purchased 4 copy's of the text (gifts). But the main reason is the impact word on fire 🔥 ministry has had on me is the ultimate reason why I try to cultivate a system in me to read the text often and regularly rather than rarely and seldom.

I love the book, its cover illustration is beautiful and so meaningful as I read what each icon represents. The introduction and commentaries are great and so interesting to read. Can I offer one suggestion? I find the print every light, perhaps the ink on this special paper makes it so. If the ink can be darkened I think that will be helpful, especially to seniors, and in view of a large print not being available now. Word on Fire is a blessing to us, may God bless all of you in this sacred ministry. Loraine

Beautiful Bible, great artwork, love the side notes.
Word On Fire: The Gospels
(Toronto) | October 9th, 2020
It was a long wait time, but the time spent was well worth it - absolutely a work of art that illuminates the text of the Gospels. Happy to have pre-ordered it from Sunrise Marian to enjoy the much lower shipping rates in Canada. One minor thing: I don’t know if my copy is flawed: I see a raised hub at the lower portion of the spine of the book... but not too big of an issue.
