Ascension, the leader in Catholic faith formation, announces “The Great Adventure Catholic Bible, Spanish Edition” for Hispanic believers
With the Spanish-speaking Catholic community in the United States growing exponentially, Ascension is proud to offer the newly-released “The Great Adventure Catholic Bible, Spanish Edition” to believers who desire to access Sacred Scripture in Spanish.
“We are thrilled to present ‘The Great Adventure Catholic Bible’ to our Catholic brothers and sisters who pray and worship in Spanish,” comments Jeff Cavins, creator of The Bible Timeline Learning System and a general editor of The Great Adventure Catholic Bible. “We have seen The Bible Timeline help millions of English-speaking believers grow closer to God through Sacred Scripture. We are overjoyed to provide the same opportunity for our Spanish-speaking communities.”
The Great Adventure Catholic Bible became the #1-selling Catholic Bible in the United States because of its innovative Bible Timeline Learning System. This color-coding method organizes the 73 books of the Catholic canon into one central “story of salvation history,” beginning in Genesis and culminating with the life of Jesus and the establishment of the Church.
The new Spanish Edition of “The Great Adventure Catholic Bible” includes this same Bible Timeline which made its English predecessor such a success, in this case paired with the Biblia de Jerusalén Latinoamericana Spanish translation. The final text features 12 Bible Timeline charts, 21 articles written by top Bible scholars, 16 full-color maps, 70 “Key Event” call-out markers, the words of Jesus printed in red, 2 ribbon markers, and the “Imprimatur” and “Nihil Obstat” endorsements from the Catholic hierarchy.
Luis J. Medina is the General Manager of Small Group and Consumer Products at Ascension and is also himself a Spanish-speaking Catholic. He knows from experience: “This Bible fills a huge need for our Hispanic community. It’s a Spanish Bible that teaches readers how to read the Bible. So many Hispanic Catholics come to the U.S. and lose their faith. This Bible is a fantastic resource for Hispanic Catholic families who are seeking to grow in faith themselves, and to pass that faith along to their children in an American culture.”
The Great Adventure Catholic Bible, Spanish Edition is far from Ascension’s first offering for Spanish-speaking believers. The publisher has previously produced Bible studies, sacramental prep programs, and select religious books in Spanish translations.
“We know that Hispanic Catholics bring great faith and vitality to the Catholic Church in America,” says Ascension’s founder and president, Matthew Pinto. “It is our great joy to make this life-changing Bible available to our Spanish-speaking brothers and sisters in Christ.”
