CSSI Bible Now Shipping


According to the Saint Benedict Press website, the Catholic Scripture Study International RSV-CE is available for order now. Personally, I am still debating on whether or not to shell out $69.95 + shipping for this, but I would be interested to hear from any of you who do decide to purchase it.
This new RSV-CE edition contains:
This high-quality RSV-CE Bible seamlessly integrates Sacred Scripture with extensive study materials and reference guides. Includes 76 full color pages, Holy Land maps marked with significant events and places, and extensive biblical apologetics and topical indexes, all beautifully bound in our Classic Black Bonded Leather with multiple ribbon markers, gold edges and beautiful foil stamped cover.
Update: You can a sneak peak of this volume on the Tan Books site here. I do not see cross-references.

This sounds alot like The Catholic Answer Bible from Fireside Publishers which I already have. I don't see anything regarding references or a concordance so I think I will pass on this edition for now. Sharon

Yes, they'll need to provide a sample text (a ‘look inside’) first before we invest in the Bible.

Biblicalpaths,
I agree 100%. I need to see some sample texts.

Ditto on the comparison to The New Catholic Answer Bible. Also...Tim..."beautiful cover"??? Too close to Ignatius' style if you askme but then...beauty IS in the eye of the beholder. :)

If something like this Bible came out using the RSV-2CE translation I probably would buy it. So I will probably pass on this one.

Rolf,

That seems to be the sentiment so far by a number of those who have commented.
