The New American Bible, Revised Edition (NABRE) is the culmination of nearly 20 years of work by a group of nearly 100 scholars and theologians, including bishops, revisers, and editors. The NABRE includes a newly revised translation of the entire Old Testament (including the Book of Psalms) along with the 1986 edition of the New Testament.

The NABRE is a formal equivalent translation of Sacred Scripture, sponsored by the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine, using the best manuscripts available. Work on most books of the Old Testament by forty revisers and a board of eight editors began in 1994 and was completed in 2001. The 1991 revision of the Psalter, the work of thirty revisers and six editors, was further revised by seven revisers and two editors between 2009 and 2010. Work on the New Testament, begun in 1978 and completed in 1986, was the work of thirteen revisers and five editors.

With the Logos Bible Software edition, the New American Bible, rev. ed. (NABRE) is fully integrated with the other resources in Logos, including maps, dictionaries, and numerous other Bible study tools. The Logos edition also allows you to perform powerful searches and word studies, as well as the ability to sync this translation with other English and original language translations in your library for comparison. This makes New American Bible, rev. ed. (NABRE) more powerful and easier to access than ever before for reading, sermon preparation, research, and Bible study.

  1. Christopher Huynh
    Evangelical here. Everyone should have a copy of this translation. The footnotes are also incredibly valuable. This translation is the one that after months of research finally settled the issue for me of whether there are two offices of the church (bishop/presbyter and deacon) or three (deacon, presbyter and bishop). The footnotes sometimes do come from a secular standpoint, but this translation does not advertise itself as a confessional translation. It is an academic translation. If it were the former, Isaiah 7:14 would say "virgin" instead of "young woman," Genesis 18:12 would say "lord" instead of "husband," etc.

  2. Paul



    Overall this is a good translation. Some of the footnotes are clearly from a liberal higher criticism point of view (e.g. Matt 16:21,Luke 1:46).
