Confraternity New Testament was translated from the Latin Vulgate. Translated under the auspices of the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD) between 1941 and 1969. The Confraternity New Testament strives to give a fluent English translation while remaining close to the Latin Vulgate.
This edition of the New Testament is small enough (and sturdy enough) to hold up even when it's tucked into a crowded pocket or purse. As such, it's perfect to carry with you for those moments in line or in waiting rooms when you can take some time for a moment's consolation from the Word of God.
A reprint of the reliable Confraternity edition published in 1941, the type in this pocket-size volume is large enough to read with ease,and features a convenient ribbon place marker.
