The Catholic Bible
Catholic Church and Others
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
The Catholic Bible includes both the Old Testament and New Testament. This Douay-Rheims version is the authoritative Bible of the Catholic Church. It is a beautiful translation that brings to life the teachings of the church.
Updated navigation and performance (February 2015)
I have two major problems with the navigation in this bible.
1. This Bible is unusable with a Table of Contents that has every chapter of every book as a line item in the Table of Contents! Who ever heard of having to swipe literally Fifty times just to try to get to the New Testament!?! Maybe if I scroll down twenty times I'll be all the way to Leviticus Chapter 16!!!!
2. The bible itself takes about FIVE MINUTES to load on an iPad2. That means I can't even use the scroll bar at the bottom of the page to quickly jump ahead to a book or chapter in the bible until five minutes after I've opened the book! That is completely frustrating and unless they fix this, makes this bible impractical for daily use.
Excellent Catholic Bible at an affordable price. I've been using this daily for a couple of weeks and I really enjoy it. I like the way the navigation is set up. I can access every chapter not just the main books for the table of contents. Despite being a big book, it loads quickly.
I'd recommend bookmarking your favorite books for quick access. Works great.
Great Bible, Great Price
Love this Catholic Bible. I use it a lot and it's functioning works really well for me. Sometimes I bring it to my bible study class. Loads quickly and has it all. A great price too. I agree with the other commenter who mentioned bookmarking. I bookmark the four main gospels for even quicker access. Highly recommend this Bible.
