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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›

I use these for Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. They are small enough for a child to hold, and I like the font. It is not too difficult for me to read in this small format. Read morePublished 6 days ago by I. Clagett
