Customer Reviews

A great tool for CCD classes.


By Bob Glass, Chester

We are finishing our first year with the Catholic Youth Bible. The best review I can give is from a comment one or our Sixth-Grade students said at the end of class with the Bible. She said "It's not time to stop is it?" That is a testament to the beauty of the Bible.

We have been giving our freshman The Catholic Youth Bible from Saint Mary's Press for years now. They are great and I like the new edition even better than the earlier ones. Keep up the good work providing great materials for our Catholic youth.

By Teri B., St. Robert of Newminster, Ada, MI

I’m using The Catholic Youth Bible for our RCIA seekers and candidates. It’s really the best Bible out there for RCIA because it includes other helpful information!
