Alter Bible - does anyone have thoughts?


#1

Does anyone have this and what are your thoughts? Good or useful acquisition for study? Granted it won’t have catholic perspective, but I wonder if it provides potentially much other useful perspective in the copious notes as well as translation.


#2

If it ain’t Catholic, I’m not reading it. But that’s just me. Those study notes would be absolutely meaningless to me. Why don’t you grab yourself a Douay - Rheims Catholic Bible with Haydock Commentary instead?


#3

Didache Bible is a very good one because it also has notes from the Catechism of the Catholic Church all throughout.


#4

I have a Didache Nabre, Ignatius Study Bible RSVSCE, and NRSV w/Apo, and of course the Haydock DR and CCCD 1941 commentaries on digital. I want to know if anyone feels their scripture reading can be expanded by such a bible as the Alter (OT only).
