Bibles and Catechisms
An old English translation of the Vulgate still favored by many traditionalist Catholics.
The popular "Ignatius Bible"; a reprint of the Catholic Edition of the RSV. Favored by those who don't like modern Bible translations with "inclusive language". It is a lovely translation; recommended for anyone's library.
My husband discovered this one in a Catholic bookstore. A good modern Catholic translation which uses plain yet reverent English. I particularly like the fact that it renders Luke 1:27 as "Hail full of grace" rather than "Highly-favored daughter" or some other inaccurate modern rendering.
The most widely used Catholic translation in the USA. Also available in a Paperback Edition from Catholic Book Publishers.Here's a note on inclusive language in the NAB from the Webmaster.
Another modern Catholic translation of the Bible with some moderate inclusive language.
No Catholic home should be without a Bible and the Catechism! This is the inexpensive paperback edition from Doubleday.
This paperback edition is larger and contains more indicies in the back for in-depth study and referencing.
Same as the last one, only in hardcover.
A classic commentary on the Four Gospels compiled from the writings and sermons of the Church Fathers! Gives the early Church's understanding of the life and teachings of Our Lord. A bit pricey, but definitely worthwhile if you can afford it.
A terrific theology book for lay people! Contains a powerful yet easy to understand explanation of the mystery of the Trinity! Highly recommended for anyone who wants to learn basic Catholic theology.
A great book which answers Fundamentalist objections to Catholicism. Recommended for all beginners in apologetics.
Also perfect for beginners; explains Catholic teaching clearly and convincingly.
A thorough, biblical refutation of the belief that salvation is by faith alone ("sola fide"). Extensive and convincing to the open-minded.
This companion volume to the last book takes on "sola scriptura". Presents strong Catholic answers to this doctrine. Both are highly recommended to anyone studying Catholic apologetics.
Basic apologetics for young people. Answers many questions posed by adolescents today. The chapter about Church teaching on human sexuality is excellent.
The Liturgy of the Hours is the official prayer of the Church. Once primarily prayed by priests and religious, it is now recommended to all Catholics. This volume is an easy abridgement of the original four-volume set, ideal for lay people.
A further abridgement of the above volume, containing only Morning and Evening Prayer. Good for busy people; I used it as a kind of "training" volume to prepare me to use the volume above.
The classic compendium of information on Catholic Saints. Lists the saints for each day and gives information on them.
I love this book. Br. Lawrence found a great prayer method for busy people; he conversed with God all day long. Beware of partial editions; this edition is complete.
St. Therese's "Little Way" has inspired millions; her spirituality of simplicity and childlike trust has much in common with Br. Lawrence. Both are highly recommended.
As you can tell, I love St. Therese! Her poetry is beautiful and insightful as well.
A Christian classic for 500 years! Beloved by Christians of various persuasions; not just Catholics. This is a modern translation.
An older translation of the above work.
