Book Overview
New Testament and Psalms Revised Standard Version-Catholic Edition, Second Edition A completely new design and typeset edition of the popular Ignatius Revised Standard Version-Catholic Edition Bible, with minor revisions to some of the archaic language used in the first edition. This revised version is a contemporary English translation without dumbing-down the text. This second edition of the RSV doesn't put the biblical text through a filter to make it acceptable to current tastes and prejudices, and it retains the beauty of the RSV language that has made it such a joy to read and reflect on the Word of God. Now the only Catholic Bible in standard English is even more beautiful in word and design Features: Beautifully designed typeset with a 9/10 font size Flexible leather cover The RSV, second Catholic edition is the only Bible translation that uses standard (non-feminist) English and is in conformity with the Church's translation guidelines found in the Vatican document, Liturgiam Authenticam Gold-edged pages Beautiful gold-stamped icons on cover Silk ribbon marker Excellent portability at only 4 3/8 x 6 3/4 x 3/4
