5 of 5 people found the following review helpful By D. Cunningham on April 21, 2010
Format: Hardcover
This version contains the Douay Rhiems Bible as revised by Bishop Challoner - which is what almost everyone in the world thinks of as the Douay Rhiems. It remains the only approved translation of the Latin Vulgate which is readily available and for that reason it is extraordinarily useful for any serious student of the Catholic Scriptures. However, this Bible is translated into Elizabethan English (similar to the King James Bible) and can be quite a challenge for young Americans to read. Many would argue that the excellence of this translation and the value of the connection to the Vulgate are worthy reasons to accept the challenge of learning the older style English. However, with my own children I use a more modern translation that removes the barrier of antiquated language. As for the St. Benedict's Press Bibles, I own several and they are very well done. If you decide on the Douay Rhiems translation as a First Communion / Confirmation gift, this is definitely the format to buy.

On the contrary to the first reviewer, the Douay-Rheims is the most accurate, unchanged and traditional Roman Catholic Bible translated directly by St. Jerome.

First the Cons ;
1) The print is rather small. You need either 20/20 vision, or very good eyeglasses.
2) This Bible did not come gift boxed (as pictured in some ads) but was shrink wrapped by publisher.

Now the Pros ;
1) Words of Christ are in red.
2) Printing is a clear and readable typeset, using a good amount of ink.
3) Nice paper.
4) Lovely pictures with aids in studying Catholic prayers.
5) Pretty gold page edges.
6) The smaller Bible size can be easily carried in bag or large purse.
7) Pretty white cover.
8) This Bible has charisma.

5 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Catholic Books on April 17, 2010
Format: Hardcover
This is the original English translation of St. Jerome's Vulgate Latin which he translated from the original languages of Aramaic, Greek, Hebrew, and "Old Latin". It is still the "versio vulgata", that is, the "commonly used" translation, and remains the definitive and "officially promulgated" version of the universal, Roman Catholic Church, just as the Latin language continues to be Her official, and universal language. There is no finer or more accurate translation! "Currently" is the key word in the review given by "amanuensis". What with the "newly appointed" ICEL members working diligently to replace the errors of the past with more accurate translations of all our liturgical prayer we are beginning to reap the benefits of their labor. This Bible makes a first, fine addition to that progress.

Beautiful book. I bought it for my daughter for her FHC The additional pages on the saints are wonderful. Beautiful full color pictures. I know some people may say that the Douay Rheims is too difficult for children to understand but, if they grow up hearing and reading it, they will come to understand in time. The only way for any person of any age to adjust to the Old English language is to read it and take the time to get familiar with it. I will buy my son his own for his FHC when the time comes. I think this is the ideal First Communion gift!

I was looking for a Douay Rheims edition and this one is perfect. I especially like the "extra's" included especially for confirmation. It's a sturdy and elegant edition. You can't go wrong.
