The Great Adventure Bible is now the best selling Christian Bible in North America.
Catholics are sending a clear message with this: We do love the Bible.
The Bible originated from the Catholic Church. It was hand-printed on parchment paper by the early monks and was safeguarded throughout the centuries, especially during the Middle Ages, when these holy monks who would lay down their lives to protect the Bible from heretics who wanted to destroy it.
And the reason this Bible has become so overwhelmingly popular is because it is the Catholic Bible that teaches you how to read it.
The articles that explain the historic and symbolic context are giving Catholics an understanding of scripture they've never had before.
The paper is thick (not onion-skin-thin).
The full-color sacred artwork is prayerful and contemplative, not distracting.
The color coding system helps Catholics immediately understand the context of the book the are reading. (This is the only Bible in the world that incorporates the Bible Timeline system.)
The scholars who worked on this printing, such as former EWTN host Jeff Cavins, are passionate, dedicated Catholics who truly believe the Bible is the Word of God. Rather than leaving you puzzled or uncertain, reading their commentary will bolster your faith and make you feel more confident about explaining your beliefs to others.
