OK, the title is kinda hokey but I like what this Bible will include.
Ad quote: How you’ll learn...
*Color-coding for easy reference. Uses the popular Bible Timeline system that’s used by hundreds of thousands of Catholics to learn the Bible
*Articles to help you understand the overarching story and important covenants that tie the entire Bible together.
*Key event callouts to help you quickly identify important points in the Bible that ordinarily take readers a long time to find and categorize in their head.
*Detailed charts giving a visual overview of important characters, key events, maps, major covenants, and historical context.
*Newly Designed Full-Color Maps to help visualize Bible story locations.Being a convert to Catholicism, I grew up using Protestant reference Bibles- I adored them because they taught about the people, places and background information about the stories in the Bible. Granted it was flawed because it was Protestant, but my point is, I always wanted more information for better understanding of what I was reading in the Bible - reference Bibles gave that to me.
Now I'm thrilled to find a new Catholic "reference" Bible being published that seems to include all those things.
