Top Customer Reviews
- I love it for the translation, like it for the content and the clear, clean, readable text.
- It's softcover and it's over $22! The paper quality is typical thin "Bible paper"... yet the price is outrageous considering no other softcover Bibles do the same; or have the nerve to.
- There are printing errors, mostly to do with errors in justifying the text so that one word will take up an entire line.
I've told the publishers and they just brushed it off with a casual "thanks"... in other words, they will continue to print the errors.
Text error example:
In the Book of Wisdom, chapter 17, verse 1; it should read:
and the text would continue on, as normal, on that line. Except that "great," looks like:
"g r e a t ,"
and it takes up an entire line. Ugly and annoying; especially for an overpriced softcover! And apparently there are more that others have pointed out.
The cover is real leather, not the plastic-feeling bonded leather. Page edges are gilded, and the ribbon marker is always appreciated. The font is a touch larger than normal for compact-sized Bibles, and that was a pleasant surprise. Also, this is the first Douay-Rheims I've found with Our Lord's words in red, which is another plus.
My only knock on this edition is that the paper is ultra thin, causing the type on the reverse page to slightly darken the page you're reading. I realize though, that there's a tradeoff somewhere for larger type and keeping the volume light, so I'm ok with it, and I don't think it will effect anyone's reading pleasure.
All in all, a wonderful Bible for Catholics and all those who want to read the *entire* Word of God (note to my Protestant brothers and sisters: that last comment is meant playfully - please don't take offense.)
**** update ****
Some of you may be interested to know that Steve Webb finished his Douay-Rheims audio bible in January of 2012. He has samples posted if you want to try before you buy. It's the only full Douay audio version (Old and New Testaments) that I'm aware of, and it's very reasonably priced. Web search douayrheimsaudiobible.
