Reviews - What do customers think about The Revised Standard Version Catholic Bible?
Easy to understand Mar 9, 2007
This version of the Bible is easy to understand and read. The compact size is great for travel and the zippered cover is an asset. Pay attention to the size however, it is small print. It has a place in the front for personal and family information and prayers in the back. A must read!

Excelent Jul 25, 2006

Excellent Bible! May 26, 2006
I received this excellent Catholic Edition of the Revised Standard Edition of the Bible from a friend and I must say that I am thoroughly satisfied with it! It is a beautiful Bible and is just the right sized to tote around with you wherever you go. The leather is definitely high quality and I love the zipper. Also the pages have gold gilding on them and I love the little St. Christopher medal that is attatched to the zipper. The type is a tad small though which is the only real drawback.
Outstanding value, outstanding edition Mar 3, 2006
The quality of this edition is very high. A lot of attention was paid to the construction and the zipper closure is a wonderful touch. I highly recommend this for any Catholic looking for a travel or devotional bible that will stand up to years of use.
