Your Favorite Bible Edition



While it seems that I am always looking for the "next best thing" in regards to Catholic Bibles, there is one thing that has remained constant over the past few years: My favorite Bible edition is still the Cambridge NRSV Reference Bible with the Apocrypha--French morocco leather. While there have been times when I have been "tempted" to switch Bible translations, I always seem to fall back to this edition. Although it is true that I am sympathetic to the NRSV translation, the overall quality of this Cambridge edition, including not only the Moroccan leather, but the plentiful cross-references, thick paper, 18 maps, and truly helpful glossary, make this edition a true gem for Catholic Bible readers. There is no other Bible that meets my needs like this edition of the NRSV.

But how about you? What Bible edition do just absolutely love and use? This question has less to do with a particular Bible's translation, but rather the whole package. Feel free to give a glowing report of your favorite Bible, including any links to websites that provide further details about it.

Translations aside (I'm a devout Catholic student of the Bible who's preferred translation is the RSVCE), I think my favorite Bible is the St. Joseph gift edition of the New American Bible. I use this edition quite a bit, by necessity, in teaching parish Bible studies. Not crazy about the translation; absolutely loathe many of the footnotes, but I am really fond of the book itself. The font and layout are perfect, it is attractive and well-bound, it 'lays' open easily on table on/in the hand when teaching, the pages are not too thin or thick, and it has many helpful charts and liturgical aides.

My dream version of this version of the NAB would be to take out all the footnotes containing 'higher criticism' speculation, revise or replace the dopey "Reading Your Bible" essay, revise a few key passages to more traditional renderings (i.e., Psalm 23, Luke 1:28) update the color plates to fine art depictions of the same scenes, and provide full size color maps in an appendix. A place ribbon or two would be nice as well.

In my opinion, this would make this edition of the Bible, maybe not perfect, but at least much more attractive and usable.

Timothy, I think I agreed with you in the past on this Bible. The NRSV translation is growing on me, but this edition is my favorite Bible. I love the French Morocco leather, it is flexible but not floppy soft like some of the other premium leather. I like the Bible paper used, it is very resistant to bleed through. I like the cross references, the maps and the glossary. I also like the fact that this is the non-aglicanized version of the text. The new NRSV Catholic editions that Harper Collins is putting out are the anglicanized versions. Overall, I love the quality of this Bible, and long as I don't do something to ruin it (like spill coffee on it), it should last a life time!

My favorite is the Jerusalem Bible 1966 edition,
the footnotes are plentiful and a support catholic perspective. I don't find too much higher criticism notes overall and the translation is balanced.

jogomu said...

In NRSV-land I am currently reading from the Cambridge "giant print" (18 pt I believe) New Testament, which is vol 4 of a complete (Prot canon) Bible offering.

For use when not on the go it is so nice to not have to work at it AT ALL to make out the text... and I don't have poor vision (when corrected).

As long as I'm commenting I'll plug nrsvnotes.pbworks.com ... looking for contributors!

TSO said...

For a long time my favorite was the New Jerusalem hardback version with full notes but found myself so often getting sidetracked that now I prefer the look and feel of the New Jerusalem leather edition which has fewer (even if helpful) distractions.

The CTS Bible arrived in the mail yesterday, and it's goose-bump city even if the print is a bit small for middle-aged eyes. But it's a keeper. Jerusalem version with notes and the Grail Psalms - don't have any Bible like it.

The bible I actually use the most seems to be "The Catholic Comparative New Testament", which has no less than eight parallel translations. It makes St. Paul's writings clearer when one reads multiple versions of the same verse.

Theophrastus said...

I prefer to use Bibles with original language -- so one very useful resource that I use (unfortunately no Deuterocanonicals) is this Hebrew- Greek (BHS/NA27) edition. This is the Bible I use most often (and it is small enough to carry easily).

For the New Testament, this Greek-Latin (NA27/Aland Vulgate=Nova Vulgate + critical apparatus) is useful.

For the Deuterocanonicals, I prefer the Oxford Parallel Apocrypha (Stuttgart Septuagint/Knox/TEV-GNB/NRSV/NAB/NJB) (out of print).

For a comparison New Testament, I prefer the the Oxford Precise Parallel New Testament (NA27/KJV/Rheims-Challoner/Amplified/NIV/NRSV/NAB/NASB) (out of print) or the NA27/NET Bible Diglot -- the latter because of the useful notes.

For a Psalter, I prefer the Oxford Comparative Psalter (BHS/Stuttgart Septuagint/RSV/NETS).

There are fewer single-volume Hebrew diglots to choose among; perhaps the best of the lot is the JPS Hebrew-English Tanakh (BHS/NJPS).

There are fewer nice Bibles for Septuagint studies, I like the New English Translation of the Septuagint and the best single volume Greek is the Stuttgart Septuagint (hopefully, we'll have a better one in the future). I do not recommend Brenton's edition.

For a comparison full English Bible, I think the best choice is Oxford Complete Parallel Bible (NRSV/NAB/NJB/REB) (out of print).

I think the Bible is too hard to read without notes, though, so for self-instruction for those not reading original languages, I recommend that people read commentaries or study Bibles. My own preference is for commentaries that focus on a single book -- since I think these allow someone to "dig deeply" into Scripture -- I know that you have recommended several of the in the past (e.g., the Catholic Commentary on Sacred Scripture series). If one needs a single volume reference, I think that Oxford's study Bibles are the most interesting: The Catholic Study Bible (NAB), NRSV New Oxford Annotated Bible (3rd Augmented edition), RSV New Oxford Annotated Bible (Expanded Edition), and Jewish Study Bible (NJPS).

For cross-reference Bibles, my favorite is Oxford Cross-Reference NRSV with Apocrypha because it has the best cross-references (including full integration of the Deuterocanonicals in the cross references.)

Keith said...

Two questions....what is angilicized (sp?) mean?

Also...does this NRSV bible come in the same page layout etc with a less expensive cover? I'd like to get the bible but would take a paper cover or imitation leather cover to get the price down.

Theophrastus said...

Anglicized means using British spelling and grammar.

The only reference edition from Cambridge currently in print is this one, as you can see from this web page.

You can buy a used one in bonded leather for $35 from Amazon.

The in-print edition is much cheaper at Amazon than at Bookschristian ($88 vs. $117).

But I recommend this Oxford edition instead. It is cheaper and it has much better (and more) references.

Timothy said...

Keith,

Here are some other possible editions of the NRSV:

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=http://universalages.com/hot-news/what-happened-in-haiti-is-it-related-to-haarp/]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

Martin said...

Hello, I came across your website and it has been really helpful. I am young (22 years old) and I want to purchase my first "real Bible" that will last my whole life. I want quality in both the materials used to make the book and the content. Can you explain whats the difference between the NRSV Reference Bible with the Apocrypha and the NRSV Catholic Edition? I'm confused, shouldn't I go for the Catholic Edition? Thank you for your help!!!

Timothy - Have you seen this review of the Cambridge NRSV? It seems that he's found quite a few annoying things about the binding. Does yours have the same flaws?

Certainly my favorite Cambridge Bible is the NKJV goatskin pitt minion reference edition. It's small, compact, has lots of cross references and lays flat while I'm reading. I know the NKJV is'nt a Catholic translation, but this is the translation I used growing up. I really wish that Cambridge would publish a Catholic translation in the pitt minion format. Maybe one day soon they will. My favorite Catholic Bible is my NAB Fireside personal companion edition. It's a really cool edition because there is a pray-able rosary made into the cover.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

You must have seen Ranbir Kapoor’s wonderful chemistry with Katrina Kaif in Ajab Prem Ki Ghajab Kahani.

Katrina is really exited to romance Ranbir, obviously in reel life. Katrina is really eager to be a part of Ashtvinayak’s next film that casts Ranbir.

However she is well known to this fact that her looks as well as accent can not relate

Depending on what your destination is and how long you plan on making your trip for, the airfare may be the priciest expense. Because of this, finding a great deal on the airfare becomes extremely important. The more money you are able to save on the plane tickets, the more money you will be able to use toward your actual vacation.

When it comes to purchasing your airline tickets, the sooner the better. This goes for basically anywhere you plan on traveling. When you purchase a ticket sooner, lets say several months before the trip, there will be less of a demand, which will drive the price of the ticket down. However, on the flip side, as the day of the desired flight approaches, the flight's seats will begin to fill up. As fewer and few seats become available, the higher the demand will be, which will drive the price up. Booking the flight in as far advance as you can may save you hundreds of dollars in the long run.

Flying during the middle of the week is generally the cheapest time to fly. Fewer people travel during mid week than on Friday through Sunday. If at all possible, fly out on a Tuesday or Wednesday. You may actually find prices significantly less expensive on the Wednesday than the Sunday of the same week.

Looking for airfare online will probably be your best be at securing the cheapest possible flight price. There are multiple booking agencies which specialize in finding the cheapest airfare. However, to save time, go to Bing.com, which offers a comprehensive flight search option. Bing will search other travel sites (Expedia, Priceline, Hotwire, etc.) and display the cheapest flight form each site. From here you will be able to decide which website offers the best deal.

Students can often find discounted airfare by visiting STA.com. This is the Student Travel Association, and it can sometimes find less expensive airfare for the traveling student. This isn't always the case, but it doesn't hurt to look.

My favorite Bible is the Douay - Rheims Version with notes by Bishop Challoner. Somewhat difficult to get used to at first, but once I did, it became my favorite. It's language makes me really think about the passage and add the meaning already supplied by other translations. For this reason I take so much more from the passages, than just simply reading the smooth text from many of the modern translations. Such an excellent Bible, it's easy to see why it was the standard Bible for so long.

Hello everyone,
I have been looking for a catholic blog about the bible and catechism.
I finally found it.
I have been a lector and commentator for many years. Our mass readings and the Sunday and daily lectionary books in the US are from the NAB version which is the version recommended by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops . If I were to ask I will recommend the NAB. Why? If you have been using NAB and you have been been reading (as a lector or studying the bible)and have been listening to mass readings, your tendency is to memorized some of the readings. And believe me it is self rewarding if you memorized some chapter and verses. I have been studying side by side the bible and catechism. I have some study materials of Scott Hahn and Jeff Cavin. They are my favorites. I have also the complete Navarre and St Jerome commentary books . But not one of them are using the NAB version. I also have the MP3 audio of the NAB by Stephen Johnson. I have a big NAB family bible that I always use, scrible some notes and highlight some important words.
By the way, in the USCCB.org website you can find the complete NAB bible as well as the Sunday and daily readings written or in audio version. I recommended this website to our church and it save the cost of purchasing lector books. You can also find the complete copy of the catholic catechism and some other vatican documents. See it for yourself. If you are studying the bible, I recommend to study the catechism. Do not buy the small white catechism book. Buy the big green book , second edition by the Libreria Editrice Vaticana. There are several used copies from Barnes and Nobles online for only $1.99 plus shipping. This green book has several index of citations and glossaries which the small catechism does not have. Among the many citations you will find bible chapters and verses that are referred to the corresponding catechism paragraphs. Thanks Tim for this website. Lynn

I Love the CCB (Christian Community Bible) I use the Large Print version.
It has a lovely pastoral commentary, ans is in a moderate (literal-eguivalent) style. The translation is designed to be easy to read. Most versions come with built in Thumb Tabs.

On a side note: can the above comment stream be moderated to pull out all that spam?

I live in Brasil, largest catholic country in the world, but still slow on Bible Study. I do use three Study Bibles:
1 - Biblia TEB/TOB, my personal favorite, the best translation and lots of notes: http://thecatholicbibles.blogspot.com/2011/07/biblia-teb.html
2 - Biblia de Jerusalem, the most used in Brasil. Very good:http://thecatholicbibles.blogspot.com/2011/07/biblia-jerusalem.html
3 - Biblia do Peregrino,the Bible with more notes 2/3 of all Bible, made by spanish priest Luis Alonso Schökel (1920 - 1998 ):http://thecatholicbibles.blogspot.com/2011/07/biblia-do-peregrino.html
These Bibles are very good. Will be safe with all or just one of them.

Dear Timothy,
Up until a short while ago my favorite Bible was also the NRSV Reference Bible with the Apocrypha--French morocco leather. I actually bought several of them to serve me for the rest of my life. Then I discovered 2 Esdras chapter 7 verses 28-30. At first I thought this to be The death of our Lord Jesus Christ at his first coming, but at further reflection it appeared to look as if it is speaking of our Lords second coming, see the mention of Him staying 400 years and then dying. But if this is so, it is wrongly teaching a second death of Christ.
I may understand this wrongly. I tried to find info on this passage in the internet and had no luck to explain the 400 yrs. and the Lords death.
This caused me quite some distress and I came to decide not to use the NRSV with Apoc. although I otherwise love it.
Can you perhaps help me with the understanding of this passage? Perhaps I can continue to read my NRSVs and keep them.
I wish you well, and a wonderful Easter, may the Lord Jesus be with you.
Sincerely, Diana (I am Catholic)

My favorites (in order):

1. RSV-2CE
2. Douay Rheims
3. Jerusalem
4. Confraternity
5. NAB

Been reading some of the Knox on BibleGateway and am intrigued. Have a copy on order from the library. Might need to add that to the bookshelf.

I’m a Jewish convert to Catholicism. My knowledge of biblical Hebrew has become somewhat of a curse. The deplorable spirit of the world, liberalism, modernity, and lack of faith have infected most Catholic translations of the Bible. As a lay Catholic, I love praying the Liturgy of the Hours, but I’m tempted to give it up, as the translation of the Scriptures is pathetic. Below is my list of the most accurate and literal English Bibles on the market. The King James, though, not perfect is an accurate literal word for word translation of the Hebrew. The Douay-Rheims is an accurate literal word for word translation of the Clementine Latin Vulgate, which corresponds nicely to the Hebrew. The Revised Standard Second Edition is the closest one can get to a seemingly accurate modern Catholic Bible. However, the translators elected to delete Israel from Psalm 73:1 with no adequate explanation in the footnotes. This translation also has many other deficiencies, which I will not mention in this post. The NAB is not even worth mentioning. The fact that the Vatican Website will not even post the NAB Psalms speaks for itself. The New Revised Standard Bible takes too many liberties. I firmly believe the NRSV and NAB translators will have to answer to God for their willful manipulation of His Word. Below are the top three accurate English Bibles, in my opinion.

1. King James with the Apocrypha
2. Douay-Rheims
3. RVS-2nd edition
