The Revised Standard Version of the Bible is acclaimed by many as the clearest, most accurate and most beautiful modern translation of the Bible. This newly designed and typeset 2nd edition of the popular Ignatius RSV Catholic Bible is a contemporary English translation that 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, and much easier to read with the large print! This large print version, in three different versions - leather, hard and soft covers - makes this popular yet beautiful Bible translation more accessible and appealing to a wider reading audience. The Large Print Edition is the perfect option for devotional reading for those who prefer larger print, have impaired vision, or are reading from a lectern. It features large, clear type and additional materials of interest to all readers. Special Features: Completely re-designed and newly typeset with large 14 point font size The RSV, second Catholic edition, is the only Bible translation that uses standard (non-feminist) English and is in conformity with the Church's translation guidelines found in the Vatican document, Liturgiam Authenticam 16 pages of color maps Large 7 x 10 trim size Gold-edged pages on the leatherbound edition Handsome dark blue cover with gold icons… (more)
