The New American Bible

This app contains the New American Bible (NAB), an English translation of the Bible in a very modern English language. It became the official Catholic Version of the Bible in the United States.

The NAB was created in response to the need of the church in America today. English-speaking Catholics used the Douay-Rheims translation of the Catholic Bible until the 1960s. In 1943, Pope Pius XII called for renewed study of the original scriptural texts to create newer and more accurate translations. A group of Catholic biblical scholars and linguists collaborated to produce the New American Bible.
