A completely new typeset and designed edition of the popular Ignatius Revised Standard Version Bible, with minor revisions to some of the archaic language used in the first edition. This revised version is a contemporary English translation without dumbing-down the text. This second edition of the RSV doesn't put the biblical text through a filter to make it acceptable to current tastes and prejudices, and it retains the beauty of the RSV language that has made it such a joy to read and reflect on the Word of God. Now the only Catholic Bible in standard English is even more beautiful in word and design! It also features nine reference maps in colour.
From the Publisher In addition to the outstanding treatment of the typeset and fidelity to the sacred texts, this particular bible features a beautifully crafted flexible bonded leather cover designed by our artists, making it a joy to both hold and behold. The front cover has a gold-foil stamped iconographic image of Christ, set within the representative symbols of the Four Evangelists. It is exceptional for its classic beauty, durability, and ease of use.
