The New International version is a good clear readable translation. The New American Bible is the current standard Catholic version and also readable. However, at least some of its book introductions are modernist influenced. The Revised Standard Version is good there are Catholic editions which include the books Protestant versions usually leave out. Paraphrases or simplied versions (e.g. the Living Bible, Todays English Version) are not as good for study as true translations. Seek the Gifts of the Spirit booklet (abrv SG) - a one page commentary on each of the gifts from Presentation Ministries.

The Presentation Ministries web page has a lot of other good materials also.

Catechism of the Catholic Church (abrv Catechism) - Catholics as well as Protestants will probably be surprised at how much good teaching on the gifts of the Holy Spirit is contained in the Catechism. Click on the section reference to pop up a window with the section in it. After reading the section, click on the X to close the window. Back to Lessons. Some good Bible studies on books of the Bible are available from Catholic Exchange. Questions to think about during the study & consider at the end: 1. How are spiritual gifts different from talents or natural gifts we have? 2. What gifts do we see or not see active in our present day churches? 3. Why do we not see all of the gifts of the Spirit active in our churches? 4. What keeps us from accepting gifts of the Holy spirit?
