Description

This genuine bonded leather hardbound edition of Douay-Rheims Bible remains the best Roman Catholic Bible in English.  Also known as the Rheims–Douai Bible or Douai Bible, and abbreviated as D–R, the Douay-Rheims Version of the Holy Bible, is a direct English translation of what is still the authoritative Bible of the Catholic Church – the Latin Vulgate of St. Jerome (342-420). The Douay-Rheims Bible was fully revised by Catholic Bishop Richard Challoner Revision (Imprimatur 1899), and this revised version is regarded by the Holy Catholic Church to be the best and most reliable translation of the Bible in the world.

Even after all of the modern “revisions” of the bible that are now available to Catholics, the Douay-Rheims version, (the only English translation of the Catholic Vulgate bible in use for almost 400 years) is the very best ever produced. See also why did the Catholic church prevent Vernacular Bible Translations.

What was good enough for fifty generations of English-speaking Catholics and countless Saints and Martyrs is still good enough for us. The text is clear and easy to read and the two satin ribbons mark he pages where your daily reading is to begin.
