Review

From: "Bible Review: Baronius Press Standard and Large Douay-Rheims Editions" (Catholic Bibles Blog) Occasionally, people have emailed me in the past with the question as to where should one go to purchase a Douay-Rheims edition? That may be the easiest question I regularly receive since starting this blog. For my money, nothing compares to the work Baronius Press does with their classic Catholic Bibles. Their bibles, missals, breviaries, and books are the finest in the Catholic publishing world and show a commitment to producing literary treasures that can be read and prayed with for a lifetime. They are not a large publisher, so there is never a guarantee that their products will be in stock for long, like the traditional breviary or some of their Douay editions. So, if you want one of these Douay-Rheims Bibles, I wouldn't wait too long to purchase one. --Timothy McCormick, Catholic Bibles Blog, March 2015

At the outset one must protest that this review does not set out to consider the contents of the Holy Bible (!) but simply this edition of it. And an impressive edition it is indeed -- newly and clearly typeset, freshly drawn maps, bound in real leather, gilt edged with silk marker ribbons, and including the three great encyclical letters on Sacred Scripture by Popes Leo XIII, Benedict XV and Pius XII, etc., rendering it most probably the best edition of the Douay Rhiems to appear in modern times.

But why, in an age marked by numerous modern translations drawing on recent scripture scholarship, publish a new edition of the Douay Rheims translation? Perhaps it is because of the particular affection with which its expressions are held by Catholics, originating as they did, in the centuries of Catholic Recusancy. Or perhaps it is because many are simply not satisfied by popular modern translations, no matter how justifiable their rendition, and seek a more sacral English version. Whatever the reason, those who own this edition of the Holy Bible shall possess a worthy and beautiful edition of a venerable Catholic translation of Sacred Scripture.

This really is one of the best Bibles available. It is beautifully bound which for the cost is extraordinary.

It does not have anything like the rosary, or other "specials". What it does have, is 3 different papal encyclicals on the Scriptures. These give a fantastic explanation of the inspiration of Scripture and why we should be reading & believing Scripture that I have ever had.
There are a number of art prints in the center in the style of old family Bibles.
I can't say enough good about this Bible. The main thing that I see in it, that is different from other Douays, (in addition to the above) is that the quality is much better. They have used the best of everything, to make this an heirloom quality edition.
There are many points which can be illuminated by reading this Bible. One example which I found interesting is that the garden of eden (which isn't even called that in this translation, Eden the word is translated in this version to "paradise") is mentioned to have been the area between Ethiopia and Mesopotamia rather than just the later. This is very interesting as this really eradicates the conflict between the bible and the current evidence we have of the earliest existing human beings which were possibly African. If the gestation period for the human race was this expansive fruitful area, Moses knew that the first human beings were African in origin. How did he know this?
That cannot be explained by science how he knew this information. This is a beautiful, stunning bible, which sheds light on the beautiful stunning bible it is a perfect translation of (the Latin Vulgate).

If you wish to get the most accurate bible that is based on authentic translations look no further. This is the bible. Based on the Latin Vulgate written by the genius linquist Saint Jerome. He was the closest to the original texts of all time.

The title of this review says it all, the text, the footnotes and annotations, the language, the art work and maps, the family register pages all work to make this edition Bishop Challoner's translation great and wonderful indeed. This is the perfect Bible for oneself or as a gift. It is simply perfect.
