The Ignatius Study Bible does not include the Bible texts. The print edition cites the RSVCE, available separately.
This volume presents the New Testament in a highly readable, accurate translation, excellent for personal and group study. Extensive study notes, topical essays, and word studies provide fresh and faithful insights informed by time-tested, authentically Catholic interpretations from the Fathers of the Church and other scholars. They also provide rich historical, cultural, geographical, and theological information pertinent to the narratives. Commentaries include the best insights of ancient, medieval, and modern scholarship, and follow the Church’s guidelines for biblical interpretation. Plus, each book is outlined and introduced with an essay covering questions of authorship, date of composition, intended audience, and general themes. Also included are handy reference materials such as a doctrinal index, a concise concordance, a helpful cross-reference system, and various maps and charts.
