Could someone more astute than I help me by explaining the difference between these two resources: The Navarre Bible: New Testament and and The Navarre Bible New Testament, Standard Edition ?

Thanks for your help!

Andrew Jones:

Hello everyone. The Navarre Bible New Testament is actually a new commentary. It's preface states: "The present volume does not replace the twelve New Testament volumes. Its commentary is different, although it overlaps with theirs to a degree; it often draws on the Catechism of the Catholic Church (which they do not); it is also shorter, but it covers the biblical text passage by passage." I have not compared them side by side, but my understanding is that the "New Testament" has less emphasis on the writings of St. Josemaria Escriva. Sometimes the "New Testament" is referred to as the "Expanded Edition." This is very confusing because it is shorter than the "Standard Edition." It is expanded, rather, from the "Compact Edition." None of Logos's Navarre Bibles will include the Biblical texts themselves, as these are available separately. I hope this helps.

Orthodox Bishop Hilarion Alfeyev: "To be a theologian means to have experience of a personal encounter with God through prayer and worship."
