Ignatius Bible - Second Edition - Leather

(3 reviews) Write a Review


This is the Revised Standard Version - Catholic Edition (RSV-CE). It has been acclaimed for decades as the clearest, most accurate, and most beautiful translation of the Bible in modern English.

Key features of this magnificent translation include:

  • The ONLY major modern translation of the Catholic Bible available in standard English
  • Closely reflects the original languages
  • Uses an elegant, rhythmic English style while avoiding the obscurities found in the King James version.

All other major translations have been faulted for excessive paraphrasing or using "inclusive language" -- the same language rejected by the Vatican in the new Catechism.

The RSV-CE is used by:

  • The Vatican for scriptural references in all publications
  • The Navarre Study Bible series
  • Dr. Scott Hahn's Catholic Study Bible series
  • Catholic Answers' Answer Tracts series

Highly Recommended by:

    Ignatius Bible RSV-2CE Leather

    Posted by Vanessa A. on Mar 9th 2023

    I love this Bible! I had purchased the Didache Bible in the glossy green hardcover several years ago and it helped me to fall in love more deeply with the Catholic Church and her teachings. I have been wanting the same version of the Bible but a little thinner and with a leather cover for about a year. I finally ordered this and I can’t say enough how beautiful it is! It feels wonderful to hold and I love that all of the language notes are present like in the Ignatius Catholic Study Bible. The pages are a little thicker, less delicate, than the pages in my Didache Bible. I feel more comfortable bringing this with me on the go. I can’t wait to underline and write notes in it! Now I have a more compact Bible that I can carry in my bag wherever I go. It is truly a joy to read Scripture from this Bible.

    The pages are not too thin, font is bigger and easier to read. Just a beautiful, elegant version of Holy Scripture.

    I absolutely love my Bible. I am 45 years old and I have been gifted many different Bibles from different churches, but now that I own a Catholic Bible I feel like I am reading the true Gospel. Thank You
