affordable Bible, published without some of the more deluxe features, making it
more economical for the purchaser to obtain Bibles as inexpensive gifts for
family and friends, or for personal use.
a standard size Douay-Rheims edition based on the 1914 P. J. Kenedy & Sons
edition, which was a reissue of the John Murphy Co. edition of 1899. Affordable
and not too elaborate, yet durable so that it can be used regularly, and
purchased as gifts without being too expensive.
The original edition was scanned and pages cleaned up the as needed. Durable end
sheets have been included in the production so that the Bible would last
numerous readings. The Bible is sewn so the pages do not fall out after a few
readings. This Bible is offered in two colors: black and red. Both styles have
an attractive cover with a golden border surrounding the cross. Bible paper is used to make the book less
bulky and more compact.
Since 1609 the Douay-Rheims Bible had been the longest standard Catholic text used in
public readings as well as for private reflection. And as is known among those
familiar with the history of this Bible, it was revised by Bishop Challoner in
the eighteenth century to make the reading of it more understandable. This is
the edition currently reprinted.
We believe this affordable yet very durable Bible should be a welcome addition to
anyone’s personal library.
