Platform: iPhone & iPad
Author: John Meaney
Get the whole story! • The complete Catholic Bible. • 340,000 easy to use cross references links and notes. • Explanations of terms and theology. • Historical and cultural background. • Search the entire Bible text. • Audio option. The Bible isn't a book. It's a library. The books include royal history, prophecy, poetry, challenging letters to struggling new faith communities, and believers' accounts of the preaching and passion of Jesus. Knowing the genre of the book you are reading will help you understand the literary tools the author is using and the meaning the author is trying to convey. Do Translations Matter? A good translation will also have notes and annotations to help you understand the text. These notes may provide alternate readings of passages that are unclear in the original, help in understanding plays on words that depend on knowing the original language, and brief explanations of how we might interpret the passage. These translations were produced in cooperation with brothers and sisters of many denominations so that "all Christians may be able to use them". It does not necessarily mean that all the experts and bishops involved in the review agree with every decision made by the translators. It simply means that the text of Scripture is translated accurately and that nothing included in the text or notes is contrary to Christian teaching.
