Translated between the years 1582 and 1610 and revised by Bishop Richard Challoner, this is the most accurate English translation of the Bible available today. It was the only Catholic translation of Scripture commonly in use for over 200 years and we maintain that it is still the best and safest version of the Bible in English.

Translated with profound respect for every word, 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.

Our Douay Rheims Bible is the only edition available with the words of Christ in red! Includes updated full color New Testament maps, and beautiful pictures depicting the life of Christ. Complete with Family record and Presentation pages. This beautiful Bible is available in a durable burgundy leather-soft cover, with gold edges and a ribbon marker.

Worth the extra

We are long-time owners of the paper bound version of this bible, also sold on Tumblar House. I needed a second one and almost bought another paper back. I didn't know if the the extra $25 would be worth it. It turns out that it is. The cover on our paper back version is getting beat up, so it will be nice to have a durable cover. But also, the quality overall is so much higher. Higher quality print, gilded pages, ribbon bookmark, red print for Jesus's words. The extra $25 was well spent.

The Best Bible is a Catholic Bible

Wonderful binding which is soft and durable, easy to open and get where you want. I don't have to strain to read the text it also has beautiful gold gilding on the edges. The footnotes I found to be insightful with "to the point" explanations. I will purchase again for family and friends. I only wish it contained prayers to use before and after reading. But it's simple enough to write them in one of the blank pages or print them out and bookmark them in.

Best Bible in English

The Douay Rheims Bible is the most Catholic translation of the Bible in English,
and despite what some modern scholars say it is the most reliable. The footnotes are very insightful and the prose is useful for worship and prayer.

A Very Good Choice

The DR is obviously the only version to choose once you’ve done a comparison with other Bibles.
The print on this DR is a little on the small side but far from being troublesome.
The $100 plus Haydock version (Loreto Publications) has commentary as well as larger print (although small print is used for the commentary akin to the print for the footnotes in this one). I have both: the Haydock for the commentary and larger print- and this one because it’s less cumbersome. If you’re only going to purchase one DR I would probably go with this one because you can research commentary online. “Ignorance of Scripture is ignorance of Christ.” - St Jerome.
