There is a growing desire among Catholics to read the Bible and to find inspiration and wisdom for their daily lives. Yet there is no Bible that brings Catholic families and the Bible together. The Catholic Faith and Family Bible will be the first Bible of its kind and will be found throughout the house: at the dinner table as part of family prayer, on the living room coffee table as part of family discussion, in the parents’ bedroom as a source of inspiration and solace, in a teen’s room as a source of learning and guidance. The one place you won’t find this Bible: tucked away in a corner of a remote bookshelf collecting dust. Developed in partnership with the Center for Ministry Development and Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Religion Publishers, the leaders in youth and family Catholic curriculum, The Catholic Faith and Family Bible was created to make the Bible easier to read and understand for the everyday Catholic family, helping parents and children grow in faith together. Most importantly, Catholic families will discover God’s relevant message for their life today in the context of both ordinary and extraordinary moments of family living. This message is brought to life through the following distinctive features: o Book Introductions for each book of the Bible written specifically for Catholic families with helpful tips for parents on sharing Scripture with children o Over 1,000 Relevant Notes and Reflection Lines to help families apply Scripture to daily living o Presentation pages in the front of the Bible for recording family tree information, sacraments, and other important events o An Index to guide families to important Bible stories, prayers, teachings, and connections to the Catholic faith o Maps to help visualize the Bible lands o Easy-to-read 9.5-point type in a two-column design The Catholic Faith and Family Bible will simultaneously release in hardcover and paperback, as is the tradition for the release of study Bibles in the Bible publishing industry.
