Four years in the making, The Word on Fire Bible is a groundbreaking new series introducing readers to the strange, colorful world of the Bible.

It was designed to appeal not just to Christians but to non-believers, searchers, and those with far more questions than answers. It doesn't presume any experience with the Bible, catering to those unfamiliar with its many events and characters, while still providing rich insights to even the most biblically literate.

The Word on Fire Bible makes one of the hardest books to read more accessible with features such as:

  • Large font
  • Single-column layout
  • Acclaimed translation
  • Beautiful religious art
  • Excellent commentary

It's a cathedral in print, the highest-quality Catholic Bible ever produced for mass distribution.

Inside this first volume of the series, you'll find the four Gospels surrounded by illuminating artwork and helpful commentary from Bishop Robert Barron, the Church Fathers, and some of the greatest saints, mystics, artists, and scholars throughout history, allowing the story of Jesus Christ to shine with new clarity and splendor.

You'll discover insights from John Chrysostom, Augustine, Thomas Aquinas, John Henry Newman, G.K. Chesterton, Thérèse of Lisieux, Fulton Sheen, John Paul II, and many other teachers in the way of the Spirit.

The translation used in The Word on Fire Bible is the New Revised Standard Version: Catholic Edition (NRSV-CE), which has received wide acclaim from academics and Church leaders. It stands out because of its accuracy and readability, being as literal as possible yet as free as necessary to make the meaning clear in graceful, understandable English. It’s a wonderful translation—both for those who have never read the Bible and for those who have studied it for years.

What People are Saying

“This is one of the most beautiful compilations of the Gospels I’ve ever seen. They call it 'a cathedral in print,' and it truly is.”

— Jonathan Roumie, Jesus in “The Chosen”

“Even the non-believer will be drawn in, enticed to grasp what the book seeks to share. What Bishop Barron set out to create in this Bible is the first of its kind: a Bible chiefly concerned with evangelism.”

— Fr. Casey Cole, Presenter of ”Breaking in the Habit”

“The Word on Fire Bible could be the thing that allows us to meet Jesus Christ in these pages in a new way.”

— Katie Prejean McGrady, Speaker, Writer, and Radio Host
