Roman Catholic. Stephen J. Hartdegen OFM, SSL, Christian P. Ceroke, O. Carm, STD (Nihil Obstat) Imprimatur of Patrick Cardinal O'Boyle, Archbhisop of Washington. Introduction by Pope Paul VI. The text of the first edition of the New American Bible is composed of: The New Testament directly translated from Greek, appearing in portions from 1964 and completed in 1970. The Old Testament (except Genesis): the Confraternity Bible text translated in stages between 1952 and 1969 from the original languages, with minor revisions to the text and notes in 1970. Genesis newly translated from the Hebrew in 1970, replacing the 1948 translation. The spelling of proper names found in this edition departs from the ones found in older Catholic Bible versions, such as the Douay, and instead adopts those commonly found in Protestant Bibles. The notes in many places present 20th century theories still current, for example the Q source or different sources for the Pentateuch. Catholic scholars translated this version with collaboration from members of other Christian denominations. The NAB is one of the versions authorized to be used in services of the Episcopal Church and the Anglican Communion.
