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 new large print version, in a deluxe bonded leather edition, with many other special features, makes this popular yet beautiful Bible translation more accessible and appealing to a wider reading audience. Among those features are the lovely gift box it comes in.
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.
The RSV Catholic Edition remains the translation used in official Church documents and served as the basis for the scriptural text used in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.

|Review:||It may seem odd that someone who is legally blind is an avid reader. I do use recordings and the internet with special software, but with thick glasses if I get very close I can read large print. All of the goregoing is in aid of saying that this company have outdone themselves in providing a truly easy to read large print Bible! I cannot thank them enough. This is indeed a perfect Bible to give to an older person, a young child or anyone who has trouble seeing.

|Review:||This is my favorite Bible. The others I have which are supposed to be large print - aren't. It is a joy to read. I only wish I had not applied tabs to it. They seem to make the pages edges too heavy and the tabs fold in when the book is closed no matter how careful I am, causing tears. Not the fault of the printer of course.

|Review:||The print is indicated as large print, but in actuality it is quite small. The indication of large print is misleading. The leather cover seems more like vinyl, and comes off as rather overpriced. Best Uses: Younger Readers; Cons: SMALL PRINT; Describe Yourself: Bookworm; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings|

|Review:||Endnotes are at the end of only the old and the new testaments, not after each book, making them less convenient than I would like. They are also in a considerably smaller font than the main texts are, making them even less convenient! Too bad, because the commentaries are very pertinent. The size would be great for reading from a lectern or podium, not the greatest to haul around if you're a lunchtime reader. The cover seems like bound leather, not plastic-like, and the edge gilding is elegant. Lies open nice and flat, no gorilla grip required. The family record section is okay if you care for that sort of thing, but I would have preferred fold-out maps or color artwork in that section. This is definitely a Bible for someone with some experience reading and studying scripture, not for a beginner, and it is definitely an investment-quality Bible. The book, in short, is pretty much exactly of the graciousness in which one would expect the RSV to be offered. If you're a presbyopic fan of a more formal translation, this one is definitely worth the investment. Best Uses: Lengthy study, Older Readers, Reference; Cons: Heavyweight, No footnotes; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Deserves Multiple Readings, Easy To Read, Elegantly made, Well Written|
