I used to reference it quite a bit. More and more, however, I began to notice that it was heavily weighted in the direction of social justice issues. Nothing wrong with social justice, it just isn’t my predominant focus when I study or meditate on the Scriptures.
The CCB was, in fact, created by Catholic Christians in the Third World for Catholic Christians in the Third World. I’m sure from their perspective, the SJ issue would be foremost in their minds.
There have also been objections to the CCB’s foreword to the Book of Romans – that, theologically, it is closer to a Protestant perspective than a true Catholic one. There is a thread about it somewhere here in the forums – you may want to use the search feature to find it.
I guess I wouldn’t mind having a copy of the CCB for a casual cross-reference, because some of the notes are insightful (I already have the NT text of it in my Catholic Comparative New Testament). If someone gave me one I’d take it, or if I found one in good shape at a used bookstore I might buy it. I wouldn’t pay full price for it and would for sure not use it as my primary Bible.
