Read an Interview on The Catholic Family Connections Bible with John M. Vitek, President and CEO, Saint Mary's Press
"One of the best predictors of lifelong faith practice is reading the Bible at home with your family.
Catholic families now have a Bible to call their own and to use at home throughout the year. Using the familiar Pray It! Study It! Live It! design, The Catholic Family Connections Bible provides an easy-to-use way for families to read and apply the Bible to daily life, and to learn more about their Catholic faith.
And Catholic parishes have a Bible with which they can build family and intergenerational faith formation programming, and support family Bible reading and faith practice at home.
Catholic families and parishes have been waiting for a Bible like this!"
-John Roberto, Lifelong Faith Associates Editor, Lifelong Faith Journal
"The Catholic Family Connections Bible is the ideal resource to support and expand lifelong faith formation, at every age and stage of life. It has upbeat writing, keen observations, a pastoral tone, and excellent reflection questions. I recommend it without reservations!"
