RSV Catholic Bible  Nov 5, 2009
This Bible is very high quality. It is very thin due to the light paper. It is easy to read and stays open well. I will be interested to see how the thin pages hold up over time. I like the tabs that tell what section of the Bible you would need to read. If you want a thin Bible, this is it.
RSV - CE Reader's Version - (Pacific Duvelle cover)  Oct 10, 2009
I just received this bible the other day and love it. I already own the Oxford compact-zippered version of this bible, but the text proved to be a bit small for reading at home for longer periods. I was pleased to find that this edition is printed in the same format as my compact bible (even the page numbers are the same), only with larger font and bigger pages. There are good margins to write notes if need be at the top an bottom of the pages.

I would agree with other reviewers that if you have sight problems, you would want to get the Large print. Though the font is readable for most people, i have no issues with the font size, it could be considered small by people who use reading glasses. Basically the font size of this bible is about the size found in a standard newspaper or magazine article.

I love the thin paper that they use to print their bibles. It's readable and the ink doesn't bleed through to the other side of the page.

There is a written warning that the gold gilt edges of the paper should not get wet, lest the gold come off.

I'll have to get used to the index tabs, I'm not used to those, but should mean I won't need a lot of bookmarks or ribbons. So far it does make finding books in the bible much easier.

I have the pacific-duvelle version (not leather). It seems to be a faux-leather, very soft to the touch, flexible and water resistant. It seems pretty tough, and has very nice stitching going around the edges. I'm guessing it's some kind of plastic, but it I think it will last longer than "bonded leather" (I have an older bible with a bonded leather cover which has not aged as well).

I was pleased with my purchase and will stop with this review (too long!)
If you have sight problems at all go with the LARGE print edition  Mar 22, 2009
This is a beautifully bound leather covered bible. I however had to return it because the type was just too small to read. I have bifocals and for a readers edition it just didn't cut it. I ordered the LARGE print version and i love that one. They both are the 1965/66 edition. I can't really say what the differences between the 1965 and the 1971 editions are. The LARGE print version is only 3$ more than this edition. If you have sight problems at all go with the LARGE print edition which is available in leather thumb indexed too.
Perfect!  Mar 20, 2009
This bible is more than I expected. I am ordering several more to give as gifts. The leather is soft and supple and I love the thumbnail indexing. I wasn't sure I would like it, but I find it really easy and convenient. Nice print size too. I am a great fan of the RSV and love that there is no "explanations". Great bible and great price. You will not be disappointed!
Love this version of God's Holy Word!  Apr 20, 2008
I have looked for awhile for a "reader-friendly" bible. I have used the NAB for quite a few years, but wanted something that seemed a bit more "formal" in style. I really like this one, the type is very readable and thus far I have enjoyed this translation (more than the NAB.)If you are looking for a specific "study" bible (with notes, etc,) this particular one doesn't have a lot, although there is a small appendix in the back. Now I am trying to find an RSV Concordance to help continue my learning!
