First sentence: In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.

I am not a Catholic. I mention this first and foremost so that everyone knows I am not an expert by any means on what makes this one unique, special, distinct, different, etc. Apparently the first Catholic edition of the RSV was done in 1966. This is the second edition done in 2006. I'm not sure how these two editions differ or even if they do differ. (Though I imagine they must in some way). It is by Ignatius Press.

This one does include extra books not found in [most] Protestant Bibles (for several centuries). Tobit, Judith, extra bits of Esther and Daniel, Wisdom of Solomon, Sirach, Baruch, 1 and 2 Maccabees. It does not include the whole of the Apocrypha. There are RSV Bibles published that do have more of the Apocrypha than this edition does.

The paper is CREAM or off-white. There is very little ghosting. The pages are super glossy. Though this may not help some readers of this review, the paper reminds me of World Book paper. It is slick and smooth.

It is double column. It is black letter. The font size of the text is on the smaller side. If I had to guess I'd say maybe around 8 pt font. Though I am NOT an expert in determining font size.

I have not read this edition side by side with either the 1952 or 1971 (both non-Catholic) or the 1966 (Catholic). I have no idea what revisions were made or how many were made. I think one of the revisions made was to update the "thous."

Filmed on five continents and featuring unprecedent access to both institutional archives and the apostolates of the Missionaries of Charity, this film reveals not just who Mother Teresa was, but how her singular vision to serve Christ to the poor continues to be realized through the Missionaries of Charity today. This is far more a documentary film. It is a soaring tribute to a spiritual icon, a powerful witness of authentic Christion Charity and guidepost for all who seek hope in our turbulent times.… (more)

"This is the right book at the right time. Illustrated with some of the most splendid fresoes from the Basilica in Assisi, it offers the reader, whether Christian or a follower of another religion, an opportunity to better discover the hidden life and teachings of St Francis."
