As a current Protestant in RCIA to join the Catholic Church, I have been quite discouraged in the lack of Catholic Study bibles. They all are lacking either a thorough cross reference or a commentary. It seems there is no complete Study Bible. Scott Hahn’s will be a great resource when it comes out, but its not a very thorough cross reference, nor is there any space to write your own notes. Coming from a Protestant background, as Im sure many can attest, we had a huge array of study bibles: Thompson Chain reference, Greek-Hebrew Word Study Bible (one which I own in the NASB translation)., etc. I would LOVE to see Catholic Answers put out a complete study Bible.
In the meantime, I am working on a compilation of multiple commentaries and cross references into a 2 inch margin RSV-CE Bible to print off for personal use. I have been using commentaries such as Ignatius Study Bible, Jerome Commentary, Yale Anchor, Jewish Annotated New Testament, Bruce Waltke’s Old Testament Theology, Aquinas’ commentaries, Church Fathers, etc.,… and here is a link to the PDF files of what I have completed (1 Samuel and Galatians)… verum7.weebly.com/
Are there any other resources out there that I am missing? It sure would be helpful if someone else had already done this, because it has been a lot of work just for two books so far.
