Publishers Description The Revised Standard Version dramatically shaped the course of English Bible translation work in the latter half of the Twentieth Century. It is still the translation used in official Church pronouncements, and serves as the basis for the scriptural text used in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The Oxford RSV Catholic Bible features a Presentation Section, the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation (Dei Verbum), a section of Prayers and Devotions of the Catholic Faith and a table of Weights and Measures in the Bible. This superb Large Print Edition offers older or visually impaired churchgoers a highly readable Catholic Bible, with large type, clear page layout, and opaque papers.

RSV Catholic Bible Feb 13, 2010
I bought this version for a class I am taking. It is large print, which, when having to do a lot of reading, is easier on the eyes. Great quality bookmanship as well.

Like RSV translation, but production could be better Nov 13, 2009
Review for Oxford Revised Standard Version Catholic Bible Large Print Hardcover.
Pros: RVS better than the NAB or the later NRSV (my opinion only) Generously large print Footnotes are presented at the end of each testament, making reading easier.
Cons: Binding is glued, not sewn (a real minus in my opinion) Paper is very thin; lots of bleed through (must elevate page to read) Big and heavy Does not have the complete apocrypha
GET MORE THAN ONE! Jul 2, 2009
THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS caught my eye when I was looking to purchase my first catholic bible. Large print is awesome. Yes the bible heavy but worth taking it to work. I purchased a 2nd one for my brother whom seems to read it whenever he is home. I plan to get more for my other two brothers and sister.
RSV Cathoilc Bible Jun 10, 2009
A wonder of a bible. I love the larger print as I am hard in seeing. And the names of many in the old testament people are made so you can actually say them. The hard copy is what i got. And i love it . My only trouble , but not really a trouble was i wish the prayer section was bigger.That way i could have had my prayers and bible together in one place. But other than that a A+ Bible. I love that they have keep the wording as should be. ANd no great changes have been made. It a clean and easy way to read the bible. The footnotes are great also...And the maps in the back are most helpful. Five stars............
