The best Bible I''ve ever owned. The translation is beautiful and has more depth than any other I''ve seen. The use of "archaic" language is not a minus; it is a must for the sake of accuracy, and it''s not as though you need a college degree to make sense of it. The Bible''s physical dimensions make it perfect for holding in one hand while turning pages with the other. The binding is split-leather, which is a step up from the imitation leather-bound Bibles that seem to be common.

In comparison to the other two Bibles I own, this Bible is significantly lighter and smaller, likely due to how few annotations grace its pages. Annotations in Bibles are typically a bad thing, as they attempt to interpret the Word of God for you, which is very dangerous as they''re not always correct, and there''s also usually more to the verse than what the annotation says. If you want insight on a passage of the Bible, talk to a priest or other clergyman. Annotations are an eyesore anyway, and can very easily distract the reader.

I''ve also noticed that despite this Bible being a bit slimmer than my others, it actually has more text. For reference, my other two are NRSV CE and NABRE. In Sirach/The Wisdom of Ben Sira (also known in this Douay-Rheims translation as Ecclesiasticus) 23:27 of the NABRE version it says: "Thus, all who dwell on the earth shall know, all who remain in the world shall understand, That nothing is better than the fear of the Lord, nothing sweeter than obeying the commandments of the Lord." In the NRSV (23:27) it says: "Those who survive her will recognize that nothing is better than the fear of the Lord, and nothing sweeter than to heed the commandments of the Lord." However, in this (D-R) version, it says (23:37): "And they that remain shall know, that there is nothing better than the fear of God: and that there is nothing sweeter than to have regard to the commandments of the Lord." For the first two translations, that verse marks the end of chapter 23 of Ecclesiasticus/Sirach. But for the D-R version, there is one extra verse (23:38): "It is great glory to follow the Lord: for length of days shall be received from him." This verse is not present at all that I can see in my other Bibles. This is a grave matter, because at what point does the Word of God cease being the Word of God? If I remove/change a letter, does that make it no longer the Living Word? How about a word? An entire verse, like in this case? I argue that any removal of text from the Word of God prevents it from being the Word of God.

Also, there is no inclusive language in this translation. It has not been tarnished by contemporary movements like feminism. Always a plus.

All in all, this is the best Bible translation for any Christian, especially a Catholic, to have. If in doubt, take the plunge.

Edit: It has come to my attention that there are a few shortcomings with the construction quality of this Bible. Namely, the binding is glued and not sewn. This impacts the longevity of the book negatively, as glue breaks down over time (and much faster than thread used in sewn bindings). This is still a good Bible to have for its translation, Christ''s words in red, and the prayers in the back of the book, but if longevity is what you''re looking for you might try Baronius Press'' D-R Bibles.

After 30 years, I found the edition I remember as a boy, raised Catholic, but through the years attended multitude of denominations. I find this version far more satisfying than others, the so-called inspired by God "KJV" was just a marketing tool by the English to promote their version over the "DRC", published before the "KJV". The Catholic hating English didn''t want protestants owning the "DRC" so they published their version. Since this updates the Vulgate and utilizes recent discoveries of early Greek, Aramaic and Hebrew texts, the differences are clearly noticed. I feel more TLC emitting from the "DRC" than the cold "KJV", obviously love was involved in the former''s crafting.
While researching the creation of the KJV I found out Erasmus hated ancient Greek texts on the Gospels (the earliest translations ever) saying they were erratic and corrupt and he preferred his Greek translation saying it was the purist because he translated from the late Byzantine Latin because earliest Latin was not purist Latin. The Anglican church leaned heavily on Tyndale who leaned heavily on Erasmus and Luther. I''m a historian and took a required course in ancient Greek and Latin, I cannot believe the arrogance of these medieval scholars, the ancient Greeks and Romans created Greek and Latin, theirs are the purist and least corrupted of their languages. The older forms utilize deflections, grammatical placement, hyphens, plural and gender to alter the meaning of sentences or verses. This mastery was lost by the late middle ages as scholars altered them to simplify them. Therefore Erasmus and Tyndale could not properly decipher the oldest texts because of this, only in the last 200 years have scholars begun to master the ancient Greek and Latin, which has opened up arguments as they are discovering that meaning of early and modern Greek and Latin can differ greatly. The DRC version updates based on recovering the proper translations of 1st through 4th century Greek and Latin, while I believe the Protestants refuse to update KJV and NKJV because then they''re admitting their version is not the truest inspired Word, a phrase flaunted since the 17th century.

I was torn between two Catholic Bibles, but thankfully I made the right decision with this absolutely beautiful Douay-Rheims Bible. It has been awhile since I attended Mass, and so I wanted to go back--back to my roots, so to speak. I highly recommend this particular Bible, especially the durable leather bound. If you are going to pay so much for a Bible in the first place, you may as well get the best.

Excellent Douay-Rheims Bible

High quality. The binding is strong, the cover is nice, and the paper is good quality. The best is that it is the Douay-Rheims for both the new and the old testament. There is not a more accurate translation into the English language than this.

I should preface this review by pointing out that I''ve only had this translation and edition of the Holy Bible for about three weeks, for two of which I''ve been reading and using it. So this review is necessarily based only on first or early impressions and by no means on an extensive and comprehensive acquaintance.
To begin with he visual dimension of the book, this is quite impressive. The black leather cover and thick gold lettering is bold and effective and the contents are in keeping with this.
The translation and text itself seems to be quite deep and comparatively literal. It might not, however, be fully to my taste or satisfaction. We have to realize that the original translation of the Latin Vulgate was done in the late sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, so there is a considerable age and cultural gap between them and us, so to speak. This is much more significant if you have grown up largely in the post-Second-Vatican-Council era, when there have been many newer, more modern translations than those based on or derived from the Douay-Rheims available, as I have. I have got an Ignatian Revised Standard version, Second Catholic Edition, which is a plain, concise and very good (modern) translation and which also seems to give the full meaning of the Biblical text. The Douay-Rheims seems a bit more obscure or less readable in certain sentences and passages to me and there are also archaisms which may not, initially at least, be that congenial to contemporary readers or those my age and younger. I was also expecting more of Bishop Falloner''s notes accompanying the text. I should make the point, however, that this edition of the Holy Bible might reward greater study and familiarity and in this way be something of an acquired taste. At this stage my belief is that it''s profitable to have number of good, different translations to compare and contrast and to compliment each other. This is partly because there seems to be much scope in translating from the original languages, though maybe the Latin Vulgate and the Douay-Rheims are by far the truest and most accurate and reliable translations, as is often claimed of them.
Finally, there appears to some most interesting information, including a chronological index of major Biblical and historical events, tables and other materials, as well as really good quality colour reproductions of Biblical scenes at the end of this book, following the two Testaments.

Good translation but not so good print!

No doubt, it''s a good translation. But… I thought that the idea of printing the words of Our Lord in red would be to make them more readable. Well, they aren''t. Quite the opposite.
