Three of My Favorite Editions of the RSV
Catholic Scripture Study International Study Bible: RSV-CE
The New Oxford Annotated Bible with the Apocrypha, Revised Standard Version, Expanded Edition
Ignatius Bible RSV-2CE
All three Bibles include different editions of the RSV. They each have their own unique features as well. In a perfect world, or if I worked for a major publishing house who had the rights to do this, I would combine elements from all three: The overall look, size, and feel of the NOAB RSV (and maps), the translation and cross-references of the RSV-2CE, and the supplemental material in the CSSI RSV-CE. What would I call this version? The Catholic Reference Bible: Revised Standard Version Second Catholic Edition. Ha!
