Ignatius Bible Edition


The Didache Bible (RSV2CE) presents extensive commentaries, based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, for each of the books of the Holy Bible. The Didache Bible also includes numerous apologetical inserts to assist the reader in understanding the Church’s teachings on current issues.

After publishing the books of The Didache Series, Midwest Theological Forum set out to fill a need for a Catholic edition of Sacred Scripture with explanatory and apologetical commentaries based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The publication of the Didache Bible, based on these principles, fulfills the desire of Pope St. John Paul II as expressed in his Apostolic Constitution Fidei Depositum:

The Catechism of the Catholic Church . . . is a statement of the Church’s faith and of catholic doctrine, attested to or illumined by Sacred Scripture, the Apostolic Tradition and the Church’s Magisterium. I declare it to be a sure norm for teaching the faith. (no. IV)

The Didache Bible (RSV2CE) is a valuable resource for students and those participating in Scripture studies. Ideal for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith and intended to be accessible by all Catholics in its level of scriptural scholarship.


  • Contains 27 full-color biblical maps, including the journeys of Jesus Christ
  • More than 100 apologetical explanations that help to answer common questions about the faith

Editorial Board for The Didache Bible: Rev. James Socias, publisher; Jeffrey Cole, editor; Gerald Korson, contributing editor; Rev. Prof. Andreas Hoeck, SSD; Rev. Prof. Carlos Jodar-Estrella, STD; Rev. Peter Armenio, PhD; Rev. Paul Mankowski, SJ, PhD (Gospels)

Excellent Resource


The recently released Didache Bible is an excellent resource for Catholics (and otherwise) to deepen their biblical knowledge, informed by the Sacred Tradition of the Church. Utilizing the catechism (extensively) and the writings of Church Fathers, popes, etc., the annotations for this study Bible are exceptional and trustworthy. The introductions are scholarly and well-balanced, reflecting the very best in Catholic biblical scholarship. Over all, this Bible serves well as a study and devotional Bible, which is a rare find. The Didache Bible is, as is consistently the case with the products of Midwest Theological Forum and Ignatius Press, remarkably well made, with sewn pages, easy-to-read text, and attractive presentation. The only disappointment I have about this Bible is that it is not (currently, to my knowledge) available in genuine leather. With that feature, it could easily be a Bible to last a lifetime.
