    Printing error

    Posted by Tim Shaw on Apr 23rd 2024

    Love the DRB, this is a beautiful version of it, my only complaint is the formatting on the first page of 1 Timothy is different than the rest of the book.

    Douay-Rheims Bible Large Print Edition

    Posted by Fr. Matthew Williams, OCD on Apr 6th 2024

    I want to thank Tan Books for publishing this edition of the Large Print Douay-Rheims Bible. It is an outstanding edition, and the print is larger and easier to read than the regular sized edition. The high quality production is most welcome, with the sturdy cover, tight binding, and an ease of use for "lap reading". In other words, the Bible is not so large that it has to lie on a desk to be read. The print is very good and clear, the red lettering is great, easily read. The actual translation is my favorite, though I read the others also. I am one of those converts who grew up on the KJV, whose language I love. With the Douay-Reheims translation, I get the quality of the KJV, but much better because it has all the books needed for the Catholic Bible. Highly recommended, and it will be a joy for anyone to read, after all, it is the full Word of God.

    The one and only Roman Catholic Bible to read and contemplate.

    This is the only Bible that I would trust. It was written by God and compiled by Holy Mother Church. Highly Recommended Reading!

    Most beautiful translation in existence

    Posted by Donna on Apr 2nd 2024

    I truly missed the older translation of the beginning of the Gospel of John, so I purchased this beautiful Bible and love the translations throughout.

    Print size

    Beautiful Bible but I would not consider it “large print”. My large print RSV Ignatious Bible is at 14 points and very comfortable for early morning readings. I’m disappointed that this Bible’s print is smaller. If the publisher would increase the print by a point or two and give it a real leather cover it would give this DR version it’s due respect. Otherwise, It’s nicely bound scripture.
