Liturgy of the Hours (Divine Office) in Learning to Pray (January 2023)


A note for this review: This is not a review base on the stories contained inside the Bible, as doing so is probably best done by someone who studies religion/theology which this reviewer does not, nor is it based on any of the reviewer's personal faith/beliefs. Instead this review is based of the particular version's construction, organization, and additional explanatory content.

Reviewers copy printing: 2006-2007 leather bound edition.

Overall Fireside's New American (Catholic) Bible is a very well constructed and organized edition with the chapter neatly separated and bolded that can be useful when looking for a particular passage. Each page also has references to other passages and footnotes that give extra context or an alternative lay persons translation that allows for better extending reading and accessibility respectively. The only issue (and this is a tiny nitpick) is the text font is fairly small and compact (not surprising for a Bible of this version's size) and can be a minor issue if the reader had sight problems. This particular version also contains a impressive amount of additional content apart from scriptures including but not limited to; an expansive dictionary/encyclopedia of terms, maps. a yearly rotation calendar with reading for specifics days/feasts, a guide for the celebration of the Eucharist, and prefacing explaining the origins and history of the creation of the Bible. A very comprehensive and accessible (in other words understandable) version that would useful to students and practicing church goers alike.… (more)

This was my First Communion Prayerbook. It has a mother of pearl cover, and color illustrations for the Mass and for every Sunday's Gospel (which is summarized in a few sentences). Includes basic prayers, Stations of the Cross and Mysteries of the Rosary.
