THE
NEW AMERICAN BIBLE
The New American Bible (NAB) is a Bible translation first published in 1970. It had its beginnings in
the Confraternity Bible, which began to be translated from the original languages in 1948 following
Pope Pius XII’s encyclical Divino Afflante Spiritu. It was specifically translated into English by the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine under the liturgical principles and reforms of the Second Vatican Council, which opened on October 11, 1962 and closed on December 8, 1965.
On March 9, 2011, the fourth edition of the New American Bible was released/published. This latest
text, known as the “New American Bible, revised edition” or “NABRE,” includes the newly revised Old
Testament, as well as the revised New Testament from the second edition (1986).
