The turning point in St. Augustine’s life came when the emptiness within drove him to cry out to God in anguish. As if in answer, he heard children singing “tolle lege,” “take and read.” We are grateful for the privilege to publish The Augustine Bible, and we hope it encourages you to “take and read” with faith, as St. Augustine did, and so to truly hear the voice of God speaking to you in love.  

The Augustine Bible features a beautiful foil-stamped slipcase and a durable matte cover to ensure that you can use and treasure this Bible for years to come. Printed in Italy, The Augustine Bible features the English Standard Version® Catholic Edition translation, which many consider to be the best available English translation of the Bible.

    The Augustine Bible

    The Augustine Bible is an excellent Catholic edition of the ESV. This ESV is known for its Study Bible (non Catholic version). With a Catholic edition I now have all the canonical books approved by the Catholic Church. My only critique of this Bible is that it's in a paperback format. The leatherette editions solve this limitation and will surely make the ESV Catholic Edition of the Bible a 5 star rating.

    I like the Bible, however, I would have preferred a larger print. I didn’t see that option if was available.

    I like the slipcover because it will keep the corners from getting dented; I could safely pack it in a suitcase. I was expecting forest green, and it's actually cadet blue (the hue on my screen must be off), but very handsome. When you draw out the book, it feels light in your hand, like a missalette rather than a hymnal. Very clean, simple page design-- not crowded with footnotes and no extra appendices-- you open to Genesis and close at Revelation.done. So far, all the verses that matter to me have been translated correctly; the rest remains to be seen. We shall see. I am pleased.

    I am so far very satisfied. The paperback cover is thicker and better quality than I was expecting. I like the translation text, which seems to do better with instances where scholars talk about the Greek, Aramaic, or Hebrew words and how it is often difficult to translate into English. My only fault with it would be that it does not have extensive notes, like some Bible editions do.
