The Holy Scriptures are the bulwark of the Faith: the infallible and inspired words of the Holy Spirit through the authors of all the books of the Old and New Testaments. It behooves Catholics in this day and age more than ever, when most people can read and when many perverse doctrines are spread throughout popular discourse, to learn and know the Holy Bible. "Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ," as St. Jerome said, and there is no way we can fully understand the mind of the Church in her liturgies and practices without a solid and fully Catholic understanding of the Holy Scriptures.
To that end, the Revised Standard Version: Catholic Edition provides a formal, literal, and readable translation of the Bible suitable for Catholic use. Familiar passages and words are rendered with a Catholic understanding, and the texts are arranged according to the traditional Vulgate's ordering. In addition, this volume has a lectionary with the three-year cycle of readings for the Novus Ordo Missae, as well as full-color maps and family history pages. Perhaps best of all, Our Lord's words in the New Testament are printed in red, so that the reader can better focus on the words of life that lead to eternal salvation.
