Spiritual Warfare Bible - Saint Benedict Press

Spiritual Warfare Bible
Saint Benedict Press

It had been a while since I got a new bible. Once upon a time I had shelves full of them. And my wife insisted I stop buying more. But this year I got two new bibles. And I could not be more thankful. I received this one and the New Testament and Psalms for Men. Both are from Saint Benedict Press. And both are excellent resources. I picked this up to be a new bible on bedside table. This is a beautiful bible. And a very important resource. This volume combines the RSV-CE with excerpts from The Manual For Spiritual Warfare by Paul Thigpen.

Over the last 40 years I have owned many bibles. Catholic bibles, evangelical bibles, mainline Christianity bibles. This is one of my favorite bible ever. The bible text is normal thin bible pages. And the inserts are full color on glossy pages. Some of the sections have between one and three topics. The specific inserts are:

Scriptures for the Battle
Know Your Enemy 
Know Your Battle
Know Your Commander and Comrades
Know Your Armor
Keep the Enemy Out of the Camp
The Our Father is a Battle Cry
Know Your Weapons
Church Teaching About Spiritual Warfare
Confronting the Devil’s Power
Words From the Saints About Spiritual Warfare
Spiritual Warfare in the Lives of the Saints
Prayers for Battle
Spiritual Warfare Topical Index of Scripture

This is an excellent reading bible. The margins are narrow but the line spacings are ample. You can easily underline or write notes in this bible if that is what you do. The bible also has 3 built in bookmarks. If you are following the bible in a year plan with three sections a day it works perfect. 

I believe that if you only add 1 more bible to your collection you cannot go wrong by picking this one. This is an excellent resource for all Catholics, and really for all Christians would benefit from this bible.

Note: This book is part of a series of reviews: 2020 Catholic Reading Plan!
