The Navarre Bible and Commentary

I finally found a scriptural resource for daily meditation that has just the right mix of scholarship and devotion:  The Navarre Bible.  This text, published by Scepter Publishers, an outreach of the The Prelature of the Holy Cross and Opus Dei, footnotes just about every passage with not only historical notes and contextual information, but also with appropriate quotations from the Church Fathers and the Doctors of the Church.  And St. Escriva, of course.

The biblical text uses the Revised Standard Version – Catholic Edition (RSV-CE) and the commentary was written by members of the Faculty of Theology at the University of Navarre.  The Latin translation of the scriptural verses from the New Vulgate is also provided.
