The Catholic Children’s Bible

The Catholic Children’s Bible from Saint Mary’s Press is the first Catholic children’s Bible to include the full text of the Bible (in the easy-to-read Good News Translation, Catholic Edition) in an appealing format designed to make the Scriptures accessible to early readers. Vibrant full-color color art throughout, 125 story spreads highlighting key texts, and Understand It!, Live It!, and Tell It! sections that help kids engage, remember, and act on God’s Word.

Younger children can begin exploring The Catholic Children’s Bible with the help of an adult, focusing on the 125 story spreads that tell key stories in kid-friendly language. As they grow into independent readers, kids will already be familiar with the basic structure of the Bible—and The Catholic Children’s Bible will make it easy for them to begin reading the full text of the Bible on their own.

The Catholic Children’s Bible pairs well with The Catholic Children’s Prayer Book.

The Gift of Birth: Discerning God’s Presence During Childbirth (softcover)


Is the process of giving birth a medical problem to be solved, a hurdle to be overcome on the way to motherhood . . . or is it something more? Could it be, as Susan Windley-Daoust proposes, that giving birth is a gift from God, laden with signs that speak to women about their identity, their calling, and their destiny?

If so, then learning to read those embodied signs during pregnancy and labor could transform the way women experience childbirth. These signs reveal that God is not only powerfully present in the whole birthing process, but desires to actively work with women to bring forth new life.
