A newly designed and typeset edition of the popular Ignatius Revised Standard Version-Catholic Edition Bible. This contemporary English translation revises archaic language of the first edition, but avoids dumbing-down the text. It retains the beauty of the RSV language that makes the Ignatius Bible such a joy to read. Now the only contemporary Catholic Bible translation in standard English is even more beautiful in word and design!

In conformity with the Church's translation guidelines found in the Vatican document Liturgiam Authenticam.

    The Ignatius Bible

    I've owned more than a few bibles, and this one was recommended by Fr. Mark Beard. It is a fantastic bible, and is accurate & authentic. I love the included maps. The leather cover is a nice added feature I elected to purchase.

    Does not have all the apocryphal books

    I bought this Bible thinking it had all the books of the apocrypha. It is missing 1 and 2 Esdras and The Prayer of Manasseh. Otherwise it is a beautiful Bible. The margins are very small, so if you want something to take notes on, look for something else.

    Best Bible

    This is by far my favorite Bible and I have several. This is the one I'll keep my entire life and wear out. I love it. It's beautiful, great high quality, and easy to read. I've had my a couple of years and I'm starting to see a lot of priests using this one now so I know it's good. Get this Bible for yourself or as a gift. I can't imagine anyone not loving this Bible.

    Beautiful Bible

    I just received this Bible in the mail today. The cover is visually stunning and I positively love it. No frills if you're looking for space to write in the margins and having verses explained to you. If you just want the Word of God and, nothing else, this is definitely the Bible for you. The print is small but not too small. I can definitely read it but that could be an issue for others. I highly recommend this Bible.

    The Ignatius Bible RSV Second Edition (Leather)

    I really like this bible, considering I use to have an NIV. The only thing I would suggest is to have Jesus words in red. Overall I would recommend this bible to anyone.

    Love the Ignatius Bible - RSV 2nd edition

    I attended a retreat on Lectio Divina and this Bible was highly recommended by the facilitator. I waited to get one until I got home and purchased it through The Catholic Company. I am very pleased with the Bible and the service I always get from The Catholic Company.
