" eBook or paper format,
the Christian Community Bible is one of a kind...."
Indeed, in its paper version, it is :
the Catholic Bible
the most distributed all over the world !
Translated into over 15 languages and distributed over
3 millions and half copies per year!
Why is it such a success ?
Because it differs from other translations of the Bible which are very difficult to understand for many of us :
very ancient language
without sufficient explanations about problems of the history and of ancient cultures
biblical commentaries remain too "technical"...
Thanks to its explanatory notes,
the Bible’s message becomes
easy to understand !
Catholic pastoral edition.
Contains the Old and New Testament. Deuterocanonical books, Introductions
and explanatory commentaries
The story of the
"Chistian Community Bible" begins in 1960 in Chile !
The Christian Community Bible was begun in 1960 in Chile thanks to Father Bernard Hurault+ (1924-2004) and his brother Louis Hurault (1926-2019), both Priests of Diocese of Versailles –France. They wanted the Bible can be understood by ordinary poor people in need. That is why Father Bernard Hurault+ decided to include commentaries and explanatory notes to help readers to understand it. He began translating the Bible from Hebrew and Greek to Spanish. The finished translation, known as “La Biblia Latinoamericana” was published in 1972.
