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.
Using the Catholic NRSV translation, the New Zealand edition of the Poverty and Justice Bible 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 buy one gift / one campaign
In 2015, Bible Society launched a campaign to get The Poverty and Justice Bible into the hands of people that didn’t have a Bible or couldn’t afford one. For every copy of The Poverty and Justice Bible sold, another was gifted to a family in need. Over two years, more than 8,000 Bibles have been distributed to schools, in prisons and through community organisations and parishes all over the country.
The campaign has ended, but you are still able to purchase your own copy of The Poverty and Justice Bible for only $34.99 from Manna. To purchase your copy of the Poverty and Justice Bible, please visit Manna.
