The Revised Standard Version dramatically shaped the course of English Bible translation work in the latter half of the Twentieth Century. It is still the translation used in official Church pronouncements, and served as the basis for the scriptural text used in the Catechism of the CatholicChurch. Travelers, students and hospital visitors are among the people that will benefit from having the Compact Edition. It features a Presentation Section, the Dogmatic Constitution on Divine Revelation (Dei Verbum), a section of Prayers and Devotions of the Catholic Faith and a table of Weightsand Measures in the Bible. Bound in lovely black-on-gray Pacific DuvelleTM that's soft to the touch.… (more)

This book is to be highly recommended. It should be required text for any scripture course. An excellent easy to read book on God's relationship with his people: a covenant relationship, made over and over again, throughout Salvation History, culminating in the New Covenant, Jesus Christ. Covenant is the link that ties Old and New Testament and is explained in such an easy to understand way.

I am not a scholar and I need help to put the Bible in perspective. Sometimes I get confused with the Bible in the understanding the context and the concept of the parts to the whole ... this is especially true for me in the Old Testament. I need a way to cut through the confusion. Now I can grasp the entire Bible as a Salvation Covenant Plan which Divinely inspires me. Thank you.

Scripture is your guide to what matters most in life. If you regularly read and pray with Scripture, these verses will provide you rich food for thought. No matter what your situation, the Bible will help you evaluate the choices and make the decisions that confront you every day. Either explicitly or implicitly, Scripture addresses all of life's problems, worries, dangers, questions and uncertainties. ( )

I also read the NRSV NJB, & Knox N.T. upon occasion, but tend to stick with the RSV for spiritual reading. This edition has been revised in accordance with the principles of Liturgium Authenticum

Been looking for an Officially Sanctioned Catholic Bible that you can toss into your backpack and bring along wherever you go? This little baby's as good as it can get!

With a leatherlike cover, zipper to keep the pages from being ripped, jostled and folded in your backpack, and a Miraculous Medal for a zipper handle, the physical is as beautiful as the spiritual in this Bible.

The type is a little small, but not uncomfortably so. The language of the Old and New Testament leaps out at you and you can feel God whispering to you as you leaf through the pages of this easy-to-carry yet powerful book.

Get it while you still can. ( )
