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 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.
Don’t know. I haven’t received it yet! Try me after I receive the Bible!
