This Large Print edition is the perfect option for those with impaired vision or for 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 pronouncements and has served as the basis for the scriptural text used in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
Extra large, 13.5-point type, one of the largest type sizes available in a Bible today.
A section of Prayers and Devotions of the Catholic Church that will be familiar to all Catholics.
A 16-page section of maps
An 8-page Presentation and Family History Section - Ribbon Marker and gift box
I looked for quite some time to find the bible that was exactly what I wanted to use for all the years to come, and this one fit the bill perfectly! I wanted large print as my eyesight is not great and may be worse as time goes by. This is a beautiful book, very well made and comfortable to read- the flexible cover means that the larger print shows up nicely when holding the bible.
A wonderful bible for a lifetime- either for yourself or a loved one!
Beautiful. Perfect for family Bible gift

I bought the RSV-CE large print as I have trouble reading the smaller print Bibles. This one isn't really much bigger to the type, so it is still easy to carry to class.
"Catholic Edition" means that the apocryphal books (the ones the Protestants put at the end of the Bible) are in canonical sequence according to the early church councils.
Although the NAB is recommended by the USCCB, I believe that the RSV-CE is a more faithful translation. Best Uses: Bible study, Catholic Theology Study; Cons: No book tabs; Pros: Current Church Prayers, Easy to read print, Latest magisterial docs, Nice maps
Beautiful, Love It, Great Product
