I just bought this bible at a book store for 30 bucks!

If you have children, it is good that it is zipped so that little fingers stay out of it!

This Bible is small & compact but the text is easy to read for the size.

This is an excellent compact edition of the Catholic edition of the Revised Standard Version of the Bible. I highly recommend it as a gift, or for personal devotional reading, and especially for commuters and helpers of the sick and dying. Its slim size and light weight is also ideal for those who move around with a lot of books or papers.

The excellence of the RSV(CE) is well known: it is a highly accurate translation of the Scriptures, combining the best of literal fidelity and literary quality. It is well received ecumenically by Catholics, Orthodox and many Protestants, and is well-recognized by the academic community. This Catholic edition contains all the books of the Catholic canon of Scripture according to the traditional Vulgate order and features original notes (limited though, especially when compared with the New Jerusalem Bible and New American Bible, but accessible to non-technical readers) from the RSV-CE first published in 1966, as required by the Church.

This particular edition is a joint effort between Ignatius Press and Oxford University Press. The print is clear (though small - as expected from a compact edition) and crisp, with no bleeding through, and features easy-to-read type, benefiting from Oxford's expertise. It comes with beautiful full-color family record pages and a printed icon of Christ the Teacher at its front. This Bible is well-protected with an easy-to-pull zipper (even around the corners!) that comes with a miraculous medal as the zipper pull. One thing lacking in this edition is a ribbon page-marker, but one could easily compensate for this by making one himself, or by using holy cards.

Format: Leather Bound
The "Ignatius Catholic Bible, Revised Standard Version - Compact Edition" is very well crafted, cleanly printed, leatherbound, has beautiful, gold-guilded edges, is saddle-stitched (not glued--so pages won't fall out), and is VERY compact for travel--only 7"h x 5.3"w x 1" thick. HOWEVER, there are two versions: the "Zipper Duradera" version with a zipper to keep it closed ("Ignatius Catholic Bible: Revised Standard Version, Burgundy, Zipper Duradera"); and the "Pacific Duvelle" version with a normal leather cover ("Holy Bible: Revised Standard Version, Ignatius Catholic Bible, Brown/ Tan"). Both are shipped in what appears to be the exact same box (shown in the product photos), with the exception that the version name is in small type at the bottom right corner of the cutout window through which the brown leather cover shows. As of 12/27/07, the Amazon photo is incorrect for this version, the "Pacific Duvelle."

As far as the print goes, the type is set in a 6 point font with what appear to be 4-5 point footnotes/references. That's pretty small for aging eyes and long periods of reading. Most newspapers are 9 point type or larger. So remember, this IS a COMPACT edition, and that's how they fit the entire old and new testaments into such a small package. I love the translation; the only drawback I find is that it doesn't include story headings throughout the chapters. It does however have a ribbon marker that some reviewers say is not in the zippered version.

The language of Revised Standard Version is beautiful. It's more old-fashioned than both the New American Bible and the Good News Translation, but to my mind it's more poetic. This particular Bible, published by Oxford University Press, is well and beautifully made, and it's compact enough to carry with you wherever you go.

I don't agree with the majority, apparently... I'll start with the (very) positive point : I am not an expert on translations but I very much like the RSV text - not unduly modern, beautiful but well readable - although this is a question of individual taste. However, this edition (Compact with zipper) can only really be used for waiting in airports or the like. Or if you only ever read one psalm or one chapter at a time - which is also possible. But you can't sit down and READ this version for much longer, the print is far too small (and I have good reading eyes !). Whatever you do, don't have damp fingers when touching the paper, it'll mark it for good : the paper is so thin (although surprisingly and very positively, the text does not bleed through from the other side contrary to quite a few bibles). The zipper is practical for pockets or bags, although the medallion is quite horrible and of plastic; but if you are reading towards the beginning or the end of the Bible (basically, all of the NT!), it is impractical to turn the pages because of the zipper, on top of which the latter is visually invasive. In resume : for occasional travel use, yes. For home or study, not really. But text, in my opinion, excellent.
