The Compact Edition is the perfect companion for devotional reading. Travellers, commuters, and hospital visitors alike will appreciate this easy-to-carry Bible. It features readable type and additional materials that will be of interest to Catholic readers.
The RSV Catholic Edition's New Testament appeared in 1965, and the whole Bible the following year. It remains the translation used in official Church documents, and served as the basis for the scriptural text used in the Catechism of the Catholic Church.
The Compact Edition contains the following useful features:
For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God sent the Son into the world, not to condemn the world, but that the world might be saved through him.
