The NABRE is Most Commonly Used Among English-Speaking Catholics in the United States
GRAND RAPIDS, Mich. (August 14, 2014)—The world’s leading Bible website, Bible Gateway (BibleGateway.com; @BibleGateway), has been granted permission by the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine to include the New American Bible Revised Edition (NABRE) (http://bg4.me/1k4r0eV) in Bible Gateway’s extensive online database of more than 180 Bible translations.
“We’re very pleased to be able to now offer the New American Bible Revised Edition as another popular and trusted Bible text for Bible Gateway’s millions of users worldwide,” says Rachel Barach, general manager, Bible Gateway. “This is one more way of achieving our mission: to honor Christ by equipping people to read and understand the Bible, wherever they are.”
According to CatholicBiblesBlog, the NABRE is most commonly used among English-speaking Catholics in the United States. It’s a modern English Catholic translation equally suitable for private devotions, careful study, and reading aloud.
The NABRE joins other translations on Bible Gateway that are searched, read, and shared by Catholics (which number 1.2 billion globally), including
- New Revised Standard Version, Anglicised Catholic Edition
- New Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition
- Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition
- Common English Bible
- Good News Translation
According to its preface, the NABRE “is the achievement of some 50 biblical scholars, the greater number of whom, though not all, are Catholics.”
Bible Gateway, ranked number one on global search engines and the most visited Christian website in the world by users in more than 200 countries, recently revamped its site design. Among its many features that augment the NABRE and other Bible translations are the abilities to:
- read translator footnotes within the context of Bible verses
- write notes while reading Bible verses and save them to a personal account
- easily share Bible verses with friends using Twitter, Facebook, email, and print.
