The text of the books found in the New American Bible is a completely new translation throughout, and this was used to make the recording.
Based on the oldest available sacred texts, NAB conveys the thought and style of the original writers. NAB translators and editors have approached more closely than ever before the sense of what the sacred authors actually wrote, thanks to a better understanding of Hebrew and Greek plus steady development of the science of textual criticism. The New American Bible has accomplished this in response to the need of the Church in America today. It is the achievement of 50 biblical scholars, the greater number of whom—though not all—are Catholics. In particular the editors-in-chief have devoted 25 years to this work. The collaboration of scholars who are not Catholic fulfills the directive of the Second Vatican Council, not only that correct translations be made into different languages especially from the original texts of the sacred books, but that, with the approval of the church authority, these translations be produced in cooperation with separated brothers so that all Christians may be able to use them.
