    I was born and "raised" Catholic but basically fell away from the faith. Later I became a Protestant and to make a long story short, I ended up right back over the Tiber.One of the habits I picked up from my old Protestant days was a love and devotion to Scripture. When I had started I had picked up a New American Bible and for the most part that was okay but even before I realized how heretical the translator's notes were I had problems with their rejection of Apostolic authorship of the Gospel [...]

    The Douay-Rheims translation into English of the Christian Holy Bible, essentially a Catholic compilation of separate scrolls by various ancient Jewish and Christian authors (not Anonymous), is probably the best and most accurate of the classic translations into English that is available.Although the competing King James Version is perhaps better known in the English speaking world, the Douay-Rheims version is a more valuable guide in the English language, short of translating every word yoursel [...]

    The Douay-Rheims Version. Accept no substitutes. When you absolutely, positively have to read every last motherfucking word of God.

    Well, not the large print version, but I still own it. The Word of God. Can I give it less than five stars? It changed my life.

    1 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.2 The same was in the beginning with God.3 All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made.4 In him was life, and the life was the light of men.5 And the light shineth in darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.6 There was a man sent from God, whose name was John.7 This man came for a witness, to give testimony of the light, that all men might believe through him.8 He was not the [...]

    Love this translation. Grew up with it as a kid and now I try to find copies wherever I can. It might not be the most accurate translation ever, and the footnotes definitely show their age, but this is a great bible for me.

    Not free of mistakes and let-downs completely - but among the very best and with language that soars

    Really good inspiring read! Always wanted to read it from beginning to end. Was always on my "bucket list" of things to do!

    Of all of the modern revisions of the Bible that are now available in the whole of the English-speaking world, The Holy Catholic Douay-Rheims Version is the most accurate and safest version ever produced; it is also the only authoritative Catholic Bible that nourished generations of English-speaking Catholics!The Old and New Testaments are from the 1899 edition published by the John Murphy Company in Baltimore, Maryland (these texts were wholly revised and diligently compared with the Latin Vulg [...]

    There are two excellent English translations of the Bible, each representing one of the two main strands of documentary history. One is The New Oxford Annotated Bible with the Apocrypha, Revised Standard Version (1977). It is the clearest and most comprehensive revision of the King James Version, which was compiled and translated from all sources available in 1611. The other is a 2003 Baronius edition of the 1899 Gibbons edition based on the 1749-1752 Challoner revision of the 1610 Douay-Rheims [...]

    I have read all of the new testament in this and parts of the old testament.Classic catholic cultural literature or sacred writing? I believe in Jesus so its sacred writing to me.Right nowIm a quaker who uses roman catholic, eastern-orthodox, coptic writing, and the writing of the early church writers along with quaker writings. I believe "faith without works is dead"!I may convertto catholicism, orthodoxy, or the coptic church once Ive gone to all 3 of their initiation classes.Liberal quakers u [...]

    The foundational text for Christianity, a historical and philosophical connection to the early church and to Judaism, and a great work of literature. I first read it in its entirety during a "Through the Bible in a Year" program in high school. Whether one is seeking the basis for Christianity, masterpiece storytelling, or a classic Great Book, the Bible merits its 5 stars.

    The first complete translation of the Alexandrine Canon into English taken directly form the Latin Vulgate. Still employs archaic language (such as "thee" and "thou"), which can seem forbidding to young students or first-time readers. Makes a great "coffee-table" or "wedding" Bible.

    This Bible was revised in (the last revision) A.D.1749-1752 and compared with the Latin Vulgate by Bishop Richard Challoner.Bible is ALIVE with the work of God, its vibrant and includes all the hidden Books. To me its the closest hing to the origional books that I will ever get.

    The Old Testament (Exodus and Job) is our second piece of literature we'll focus on in HUM 101: Western Traditions I.

    I give the Douay Rheims high marks for accuracy of translation. But on the other hand the companies that have re-published it always keep the original phrasing, grammar, and punctuation used in the 16th century. As an example, I have the edition published by Loreto Publications. There are no quotation marks at all and they also retained wording like John 11:8: "And goest thou thither again?" Modern 21st century English simply isn't written that way anymore, certainly not with all of the "thou"s [...]

    Started in 2015 for a modified version of the How to Change Your Mind Bible reading plan (instead of using one translation for all the read-throughs, I'm using a different translation each time).Have read so far:Genesis - May 2015Job - Nov.-Dec. 2016

    This was a duplication so just doing this cos only one shows as being read. I am actually reading the Bible on my Kindle Fire but also the leather bound book. The book has additional text in the form of annotations and footnotes that are very interesting, insightful, and informative. After reading a section on my Kindle, I check the book for more text. I don't want to miss what the has to offer.

    I'll be honest, I do not know why Catholics love this Bible translation so much. I have found it very difficult to use in prayer due to the archaic language, and know that it is not a translation from the original scripture texts, but rather of St Jerome's Vulgate, which is the authoritative Latin translation for liturgical use in the Latin church, but is not, itself, the original scriptures.

    Baronius Press did the English-speaking Church a great service with this fantastic Douay-Rheims & Clementine Vulgate diglot. Although no longer in my downsized library, this Bible will no doubt hold a pride of place in your study.

    I like the Douay-Rheims. There are some problems with electronic formatting in this edition, and in some places, you may see rows of illegible type. Once you get past that, the tone is stirring and the effect is much more edifying than trendy new translations.
