Special Edition NRSV Bible for Year of Faith

As this is Bible Sunday in the Catholic Church here is an article about a new edition of the Bible for Catholics:
"Pope Benedict XVI declared a Year of Faith for all Catholics throughout the world beginning on 11 October and a special edition of the NRSV translation of the Bible has been created Bible Society for use by Catholics during the year.

NRSVThe translation is NRSV, which has received the Imprimatur from the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and the Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops. All the books within the Catholic canon are in correct order. The notes at the end of the edition are particular developed with a Catholic audience in mind. They include:
* A transcript of Dei Verbum - the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation as promulgated at Vatican II - whose 50th Anniversary kicks off the Year of Faith on the 11th October
* A set of Catholic prayers and devotions, including the Stations of the Cross and other devotions
* A complete Weekday and Sunday table of readings to help readers follow the lectionary readings in this edition
* A Catholic concordance, with reference to the deutero-canonical texts and words and concepts that only appear in these books
* All presented with a navy blue hardcover  with a ribbon to easily keep your place.

Copies can be ordered from the Diocesan Bookshop in Crawley
