About the book:

With writings from the saints integrated throughout the text, this new edition of the popular, widely acclaimed New Jerusalem Bible brings together the two most important pillars of the Christian faith.
Ever since the days of the early Church, believers have looked to the stories and reflections of the saints for guidance on living in harmony with God. The New Jerusalem Bible: Saints Devotional Edition is the first Bible to present the insights and interpretations of the saints directly next to the relevant passages in the Scriptures.

Featuring two hundred readings selected by Bert Ghezzi, this special edition of The New Jerusalem Bible will enhance readers understanding and appreciation of both the biblical texts and the lives of the saints. For example, the story of Adam and Eves expulsion from the Garden of Eden is followed by an excerpt from the writings of Saint Gregory Nazianzen, which brings new meaning to an already familiar tale. Interspersed throughout the text is a twenty-part lesson on studying, praying, and living the Scriptures, which contains longer selections from the saints writings addressing these specific issues. The Bible also includes a list of themes for easy reference, as well as a calendar of saints and a list of patron saints.

First published in 1986, The New Jerusalem Bible quickly established itself as a favorite translation, admired for both the accessibility of its language and its faultless scholarship. Augmented with the wisdom of the saints, this new edition will extend its well-deserved reputation and popularity among lay readers and scholars alike.
