Ascension Press, the producer of The Great Adventure Catholic Bible Study program, announced today that it is releasing a ground-breaking new Bible in September 2018. The Great Adventure Bible Study program has helped millions of people read and understand the Bible; now Ascension Press aims to reach even more people with The Great Adventure Catholic Bible.

This Bible is like no other. The Great Adventure Catholic Bible incorporates the same color-coded Bible Timeline learning system that has proven so effective in The Great Adventure studies. The Timeline guides readers through the narrative that ties all of salvation history together, giving them the overarching themes and big picture of the Bible. The color-coded system arranges Scripture into twelve distinct time periods, and it makes the complexity of the Bible simple by showing how its seventy-three books fit within one overarching story.

Features include:

  • Twelve Timeline charts that provide a visual overview of each biblical time period.
  • Twelve articles that give a summary and explanation of each time period, and seven articles introducing and explaining the major covenants of salvation history, which show how God’s plan for humanity has unfolded throughout the Bible.
  • Seventy call-outs provide brief descriptions of the key events in the biblical narrative.
  • The words of Jesus are printed in red, and there are sixteen new full-color maps.
  • The Great Adventure Catholic Bible uses the Revised Standard Version – Second Catholic Edition.
  • The Bible’s reader-friendly font and fresh design, two ribbon markers, and its Alpha Cowhide® Cover make for an elegant and enjoyable reading experience.

The Great Adventure Catholic Bible was developed by a team of some of the most accomplished Catholic Scripture scholars today, including: Jeff Cavins, the creator of The Great Adventure Bible Study, Mary Healy, the first woman appointed to the Pontifical Biblical Commission and co-editor of the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture, Peter Williamson, who is also co-editor of the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture, and Andrew Swafford, a senior fellow at the St. Paul Center for Biblical Theology. The Great Adventure Catholic Bible is available for preorder from Ascension Press.
