The best Catholic Bible for teens is now even better. Are you ready?
Introducing The Catholic Youth Bible®, 4th Edition, completely refreshed for a new generation. Designed for young people to enter in, be nourished…and be transformed. We spent over 2 years working with young people to design the best youth Bible ever.
With a new vibrant full-color design, ample room for reflection and special Scripture Highlights to color throughout, this newly reimagined Catholic Youth Bible® will engage the youth of today like never before.
“When we released The Catholic Youth Bible 20 years ago it was the first time a publisher had ever created a Bible for Catholic youth. Our goal with this entirely new edition was to make it relevant for a new generation of youth by making it an interactive experience and by engaging teens in making it their own Bible,”
- John M. Vitek, President and CEO of Saint Mary’s Press

Create a Lived Faith:
We know that faith means little unless it is lived, so these Challenge features charge youth to bring the Scriptures to life through specific, suggested actions!
Interact with Scripture:
In Scripture Highlights, encouraging verses are featured to offer an opportunity to reflect and are designed so youth can color them!
The Searching for God features offer reflections and prayers that focus specifically on aspects of our relationship with God, and the Who Is My Neighbor? features focus on our relationship and responsibility to others as a Christian community.
Explore the Bible:
Young people can explore the scripture easily with themed Reading Plans, as well as When I'm Feeling verses that help youth explore what the Bible might say to them about their own life experiences and feelings.
