A newly published, beautifully-bound version of the venerable Douay-Rheims translation of the Sacred Scriptures.
Translated between the years 1582 and 1610 and revised by Bishop Richard Challoner, this is the most accurate traditional English translation of the Bible available today.

Translated with profound respect for every word, from the Latin Vulgate, the beautiful style of the Douay-Rheims Bible will instill in the reader a deeper understanding of the Word of God. Annotations, references and an historical and chronological index make it convenient for study as well as meditation. This Douay Rheims Bible is the only edition available with the words of Christ in red! Includes updated full color New Testament maps, beautiful pictures depicting the life of Christ. Complete with Family record and Presentation pages. This beautiful Bible is available in a durable burgundy (imitation) leather-soft cover, with gold edges and a ribbon marker and is packaged in an eye catching presentation box. Printed in 10 point type.
