Beautiful Bible Oct 1, 2008
This is a beautiful Catholic Bible. It's the approved version for a Bible study I've started through my church. The large print makes it so much more readable for 60-year-old eyes. It is a handful, weighing about 5 lbs. There are lovely color photos galore, beautiful illustrations of all four Mysteries of the Rosary, and so much more. I recommend this wholeheartedly.
A beautiful Bible to display in the home Mar 29, 2008
We just set up a family altar and I decided that I wanted a beautiful, large print "family" Bible to keep on a stand at the center of it. I searched a lot on-line and had ordered a Bible from another publisher (the illustrations in which I didn't like) before I found this one. This Bible was everything I was looking for: beautiful, large print, having pages on which to write your family information and having exquisite illustrations. It is truly an elegant book with gold-edged pages that looks lovely as the centerpiece of the altar. Also, the print and the Revised Standard version make it a pleasure to read. I hope that one day my daughter will enjoy reading it and looking at the pictures. It also has informative, illustrated guides to the Rosary (including the Luminous Mysteries) and the Stations of the Cross. In sum, it is everything I wanted in a Catholic family Bible and look forward to having it in a place of honor in our home for years to come.
A Good Book Feb 17, 2007
This is beautifully done with great photos, artwork, and a pretty good story!
Probably the Version a Priest Or Nun Would Suggest Nov 19, 2006
In 1611, the Church of England published the "King James" Bible. The "King James" was a beautiful work of art and remained unchallenged until the mid 1800s. At that point, the Anglican Church felt there were enough defects in the "King James" to call for a revision. Very quickly, the Anglicans published the "English Revised" in the late 1800s. By 1901, the Americans published an alternate version. (The "American Standard") It was similar, but there were notable differences. Not too surprisingly, the differences in the "American Standard" were rebuked, and with the exception of some modern (at the time) findings, the powers that were reverted back to the English roots of the "English Revised." This is when the "Revised Standard" came to be. The errors of the "King James" are corrected, and the language is updated. Though, there are some notable traces left of the poetic beauty of the "King James." In his "Responses to 101 Questions on the Bible," Father Raymond E. Brown says that the "Revised Standard" is the version he uses the most. He describes it as: "...for the most part readable and carefully literal." While I consider the "Good News" the best version to begin on, the "Revised Standard" is the one I myself use the most. I'll conclude by saying that the "Revised Standard" is arguably the best version, and probably the version a priest or nun would suggest.
Nothing particularly Catholic about the Old Testament Dec 13, 2005
Here is Isaiah 7:14 in the Protestant King James Version ... "Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold a VIRGIN shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanual." (my capitals)
And here is Isaiah 7:14 in the RCV Catholic Edition ... "Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign. Behold, a YOUNG WOMAN shall conceive and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel."
What, one may ask, does "Catholic Edition" mean if articles of faith like this are not defended?
