THE NEW ZEALAND POVERTY AND JUSTICE BIBLE

“AMONG OUR TASKS
AS WITNESSES TO THE
LOVE OF CHRIST IS THAT
OF GIVING A VOICE TO
THE CRY OF THE POOR.”


Pope Francis – Address, June 2013

Since being elected as Pope, Francis has made numerous references to our need to do more to help make this world a fairer one.  He is passionate about people living the Gospel of Jesus and he has a deep concern for those who suffer from injustice and live lives of poverty.

Now, it’s never been easier for you to find out for yourself why Pope Francis is urging us to take action.  The New Zealand edition of The Poverty and Justice Bible has more than 3,500 highlighted verses that show God’s love for the poor and his heart for justice.

Plus, when you purchase your copy, you’ll be taking a significant step in demonstrating God’s love for the poor by enabling a second copy of the Bible to be gifted to a family or someone in need.

Using the Catholic NRSV translation, the Poverty and Justice Bible also includes a unique study section: At the core – developed with The Catholic Institute and derived from the New Zealand Year 12 Religious Education curriculum and from Caritas resources. These unique studies will help you better understand Church teaching on social justice issues.  The New Zealand Poverty and Justice Bible has been granted the Imprimatur of Cardinal John Dew and a personal endorsement from Cardinal Peter Turkson - President of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace.

“AS YOU LOOK THROUGH THE BOOK...
AND PRAY WITH IT, YOU WILL DISCOVER
GOD’S HEART FOR THE POOR AND
VULNERABLE HIGHLIGHTED CONSISTENTLY
THROUGHOUT THE SCRIPTURES."

Cardinal John Dew, President, Bible Society New Zealand

“IT GIVES ME GREAT PLEASURE
TO ENDORSE THIS INITIATIVE
AND I PRAY GOD’S BLESSING
FOR A VERY FRUITFUL OUTCOME."

Cardinal Peter K.A. Turkson
