A very nice Bible 25 May 2009
By RebelReader - Published on Amazon.com
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.

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

RSV Cathoilc Bible 10 Jun 2009
By Barry - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
A wonder of a bible. I love the larger print as I am hard in seeing. And the names of many in the old testament people are made so you can actually say them. The hard copy is what i got. And i love it . My only trouble , but not really a trouble was i wish the prayer section was bigger.That way i could have had my prayers and bible together in one place. But other than that a A+ Bible. I love that they have keep the wording as should be. ANd no great changes have been made. It a clean and easy way to read the bible. The footnotes are great also...And the maps in the back are most helpful. Five stars............

THE SACRED HEART OF JESUS caught my eye when I was looking to purchase my first catholic bible.
Large print is awesome.
Yes the bible heavy but worth taking it to work.
I purchased a 2nd one for my brother whom seems to read it whenever he is home.
I plan to get more for my other two brothers and sister.

Oxford makes this the best Catholic Bible in print! 19 Jun 2013
By John P. Sander - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
This bible is perfect with print that that is large and the verses just jump out at you. The bible is also light for a large print format at just over 2 pounds making it wonderful for private devotion on the go and at church. Oxford Press did a superb job of craftsmanship, it is very securely bound. As one reviewer said there is some "bleed through" as you can see the print from the other side of the page. This might bother some people but the print is so bold on the page I am reading that it presents no problem to me. The paper is very thin but if you are careful this bible will deliver a lifetime of instruction and wisdom!
