Garratt Publishing is the exclusive distributor of The Catholic Youth Bible in Australia and was the driving force behind the development of the International Edition and making it useable in Australian schools. We are proud to have made the CYB the largest selling bible in Catholic Schools in Australia and to introduce the second edition in October 2011.
The CYB will be a true companion, helping young people find the answers they seek and helping them make connections to Catholic beliefs and traditions. Use the Bible for personal prayer. Understand and make sense of what the Bible says. Apply the Bible to real-life situations like those we face in our own lives. Many schools in Australia choose The Catholic Youth Bible because it makes the world of the Bible come to life, and its contemporary and Australian stories make that world relevant for our times.
