Overview

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 served as the basis for the scriptural text used in the Catechism of the Catholic Church. Travelers, students and hospital visitors are among the people that will benefit from having the Compact Edition. It 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. Bound in lovely brown-on-tan Pacific DuvelleTM that's soft to the touch.

About the binding & cover This hard backed edition is very sturdy, and durable. The cover is constructed from binders boards covered with coated paper. The cover is stiff, durable, and moisture- resistant. The pages are sewn not glued, which greatly adds to the durability. This Bible is made from high quality materials, and is meant to hold up to regular use. What's inside? Oxford Bibles are printed on high quality lightweight paper chosen for its strength and opacity to gain the greatest readability on the thinnest paper. This edition is printed in Korea, which is well known for their high quality printing. The text size of this edition is 13.5 point type, which is good for older readers or those who have impaired vision. This text size is also good if you plan on doing hours of study, the larger text is easier on the eyes. 13.5 point type falls in the category of extra large, which is not to be concussed with giant print. If you would like to high light in this Bible I recommend color pencils, not highlighters. In the Front The Imprimatur, which shows that the Catholic Church approves this translation. Forward from the Archbishop of Westminster Introduction to the RSV-CE Table of Contents- Books of the Bible in Canonical Order Abbreviations The Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation Dei Verum 18 nov 1965. In the Back Appendix 1 Explanatory Notes Appendix 2 List of changes to New Testament for the Catholic Edition Prayers and Devotions of the Catholic Faith The new 3-year cycle of reading for Sunday Mass Reading for the major feasts of the year Weekday Lectionary Nine detailed maps About this Translation. The Revised Standard Version Catholic Edition is widely used by conservative Catholic scholars and theologians, and is accepted as one of the most accurate and literary Bible translations suitable for Catholic use. This translation uses some archaic language. This translation does not use gender-inclusive language. The Revised Standard Version stands within the tradition of the Authorized King James Version, which was updated in 1885 in the UK as the Revised Version, with an American edition known as the American Standard Version published in 1901. The latter version was revised in 1952, and known as the Revised Standard Version. The National Council of Churches, publishers of the Protestant RSV Bible, made arrangements with the Catholic Biblical Association of Great Britain to print a Catholic RSV Bible. In 1965, the RSV-CE New Testament was published and in 1966, the full RSV-CE Bible. The editors of the Catholic Edition made no changes to the Old Testament text; all they did was include the seven Deuterocanonical works (also known the Apocrypha) in their traditional Catholic order. There are certain passages in the New Testament that were changed to fall inline with the Latin Vulgate. For a full list of these changes check Appendix 2 in the back of the Bible. My Personal Opinion I am very impressed with the quality of this Bible. I'm also impressed that Oxford guarantees this Bible against manufacturing defects, which is another testament to the quality of this Bible. I highly recommend this Bible, it's worth the extra money.

Purchased as a gift and was very pleased with the quality, illustrations, and slim-line binding. Zipper cover keeps the book secure and compact. It made for an excellent gift.
