|oldie and goodie Aug 3, 2007|
|The RSV is the Bible I grew up reading... i like how the language flows and it's been said (by friends who were in PhD religion programs) that it is by far one of the closest translations from the Hebrew and Greek texts. |
I never understood why the publishing companies did away with this Bible and allowed the New Revised Standard Version (NRSV) to take its place.
I'm glad to have found this Bible on line... and hope that perhaps one day the RSV will have a resurgence. Thanks to the small book company who was willing to sell this now antiquated version of the Bible.
|Excellent Text Bible with Apocrypha Jul 25, 2007|
|If you're looking for a classic translation of ALL the Sacred Scriptures, this one is worth your consideration. The Revised Standard Version with Apocrypha is still the closest thing we have to a translation universally accepted by Roman Catholic, Protestant and Orthodox scholars alike. Whenever, for example, the Vatican cites the Bible in its official English publications, it cites the RSV -- not the NRSV, the NIV, the NASB, or any other recent translation. Moreover, the inclusion of the Apocryphal books in this 50th Anniversary Edition will appeal not only to Roman Catholic and Orthodox readers, but also to numerous Lutherans and Anglicans. Don't hesitate to add this very well-made volume to your library.|
|my original version Oct 5, 2006|
|The relationship between the RSV Bible has been sweeeeet-extensively! This version was my staple in high school on some Kenyan hill; the words carry some ambience that is far too cryptic in KJV and a little diluted(not in meaning) for me, as in other versions. |
It's however wise to read several versions to get a better picture of what you are reading....be diverse in the versions!
I thank my mum for giving me my sister's RSV Bible 11 years ago-I still have it. I bought a smaller NKJV that reads alot like the RSV.
|Great Family Bible May 12, 2006|
|My review is the only review here that specifically refers to the Stampley Family Bible rendition of the RSV. The other reviews are referring to the RSV translation only.|
The RSV Catholic Version is my translation of choice. The RSV was the only bible being used in English speaking universities the world over (until the politically correct NRSV flopped onto the scene). All the best academic authors use it in their works, it is a true classic.
The Stampley Family Bible is amazing value at $50 and thus I give it 5 stars . If I'd paid the full list price of $89.95 I'd be less happy as the quality is good-medium not brilliant. The font size is excellent. I don't know the exact size but my ESV Large print is 12.75 point and this is much bigger. The bible is beautiful with its many prints of the old masters, bible dictionary / concordance, etc.
|The Holy Bible: Revised Standard Version Feb 24, 2006|
|I love reading this Revised Standard Version, it breaks the words down simply and beautifully.|
