The New Catholic Bible offers a host of the other helpful features. Some editions include a handy edge-marking Index and in most editions the words of Christ are in red. Perhaps most important of all is a series of self-explaining maps showing key events and areas in the Bible, each placed near the text that it concerns. A series the photographs of important archaeological finds offers much light on the Testaments and provides impartial confirmation of the events present therein. Finally, the Bible Dictionary, the Doctrinal Bible index, and The Sunday Gospels help to bring the Sacred Scriptures into the very life and worship of each reader.
