An Encyclopedia Bible that seeks to ignite students with a passion to understand and engage with God’s word.

The new Catholic Encyclopedia Bible will engage students with sacred scripture and support religious education curricula in schools across Australia.

The Encyclopedia is written specifically for Catholic students in years 5-10 with an average reading age of 12 years. This reading level makes the encyclopedia also accessible to other low-literacy groups including those for whom English is not their primary language.

The Contemporary English Version (CEV), currently the official translation used in all Australian Catholic masses for Children, has been selected as the best version for the Encyclopedia and this selection has been endorsed by the Archbishop.

This new, updated edition of the CEV Catholic Bible is an interactive resource for teachers and students of Scripture…. As a lover of art and a teacher who encourages others to use art when teaching Religious Education I am delighted with the many artworks that feature in these pages.  From Icons to Michelangelo, Caravaggio, Breughel, Rembrandt, Blake, Tissot, Van Gogh there is a feast of images across all times and styles.  I am in total agreement with Pope Francis, who cares very deeply about the role of art in evangelization, when he says “Each particular Church should encourage the use of the arts in evangelization, building on the treasures of the past but also drawing upon the wide variety of contemporary expressions so as to transmit the faith in a new “language of parables”’.  The edition of the Bible with its colourful Encyclopedia will certainly be a valuable resource to education and evangelization.

I think the information at the beginning (encyclopedia section) is very worthwhile for teachers.  I like the simplicity of the language, and the maps and the timeline are very helpful.  The translation of the Bible is a great initiative and will certainly help with prayers and liturgies.  I think the formatting of the text makes it very easy to read.

This one is a beauty. I loved it so much I’ve asked my PA to purchase one for each of my team and at our APRE day this week, I’ll be showing it off and urging them to get one. Anyone serious about their theology has to have one, I believe. I also used this version to update all our core scripture in use with students because the language is so much more accessible. Well done you guys.
