Ignatius Catholic Bible (RSV), 2nd Edition Large Print - Leather
The Revised Standard Version of the Bible is acclaimed by many as the clearest, most accurate and most beautiful modern translation of the Bible. This newly designed and typeset 2nd edition of the popular Ignatius RSV Catholic Bible is a contemporary English translation that revises archaic language of the first edition, but avoids dumbing-down the text. It retains the beauty of the RSV language that makes the Ignatius Bible such a joy to read. Now the only contemporary Catholic Bible translation in standard English is even more beautiful in word and design, and much easier to read with the large print!
This large print version, in three different versions – leather, hard and soft covers - makes this popular yet beautiful Bible translation more accessible and appealing to a wider reading audience.
The Large Print Edition is the perfect option for devotional reading for those who prefer larger print, have impaired vision, or are reading from a lectern. It features large, clear type and additional materials of interest to all readers.

“ In all the years I have been involved in ministry, academic study, teaching and proclaiming the Catholic Christian faith I am often asked “Deacon, what translation of the Holy Bible do you use and recommend to others? Without any pause or need to reflect I answer “The RSVCE”. (Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition) It is, without any doubt, the most accurate translation from the original languages. Period. Everyone of my professors have agreed. Ignatius Press offers a beautiful version of this wonderfully accurate translation of the Holy Bible. I have used it for years and recommended it to many people. I highly recommend it to all those who are reading this advertisement. Buy it for yourself. Buy it for others. Read it, pray through it and cherish the wonderful written word which points us to Jesus, the Living Word”
