This RSV edition of the Holy Bible has become my favorite translation for reading and meditation. The book itself (cover, binding, etc) are very nice and the translation is excellent.

The Ignatius RSV Bible is what many Parish Priests are using today. I find it to be in very clear language with easy to find chapters on the top of every page..The soft leather cover (don't know why it is advertised as 'paperback')is very beautiful and the size is perfect for travel. I would give it five stars, but did not because with this particular purchase the top right corner was bent in the shrink wrap. I thought about taking it back but didn't want to re-order and it is still a very good bible and a good price.

For about $40 (less on bn.com) this is a great bible. I'm very satisfied with it, and a lot of other ones of equal quality would go for higher prices. There are a few cons I listed below but they are minor--its pros heavily outweigh its cons. It looks really great, too. PROS: *The text is easy to read, large and dark. *The pages aren't too thin. *Useful maps in the back. *Footnotes are at the bottom, not at the end of the section. *Two ribbon markers *Nice leather cover, which looks great and is fairly sturdy but quite flexible. *Sturdy enough binding. *No "inclusive language"--nothing against inclusiveness, just don't make somebody say something if they didn't really say it like that! *Translation is easy to read, but not "dumbed down". *Includes all books (deuterocanonical ones) currently accepted by the Catholic Church. CONS: (and things it should have had) *No presentation section (for putting your name, baptism, confirmation, your kids' names, etc.) *A few of the pages stick together a bit, so be careful not turning them too hard. *No section on the differences between Protestant and Catholic RSV editions. *No list of readings in Church for a given Sunday. *The RSV-2CE really should have more explanatory notes and footnotes at certain points, even if it's not intended to be a study Bible, there are things that ought to be explained in more detail. Important details: if you're not familiar, the RSV-2CE is one of the several Vatican-approved translations used by Anglophone Catholics. The [Protestant] Revised Standard Version was originally published in the 50s, as a revision of the Protestant "American Standard Bible" of 1901 (itself a revision of the King James). In the 1960s, the Catholic Biblical Association of Great Britain went over it and adapted it for Catholic doctrine (hence, RSV-CE) so that the bibles used by both sides could be generally the same. A recent Vatican directive aimed at removing confusing or archaic language from Catholic Bibles revised it further (but the revisions were very minor, and they kept the same footnotes). It's NOT the same thing as the NEW Revised Standard Version (NRSV-CE). I'm told the Vatican had objections about the NRSV-CE, just as it had with the older version of the New American Bible (NAB). This is therefore one of the several accepted, English, Catholic bibles, probably the better one.
