The Douay-Rheims Version of the Holy Bible, translated between the years 1582 and 1610 and revised by Bishop Richard Challoner from 1749-1752, 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.

Very interesting read had books that I've never read. I understood the Bible better Love the Bible
The bible was of excellent quality. It was a confirmation gift for my granddaughter. So few places offer the Douay-Rheims bible and it is the only one I buy.
Sent these to our local prison. Meeting with Prison Chaplain in near future. Will send update then.
For those who have an idea of the numerous Bibles out there from which one may select, the Douay-Rheims, in modern parlance, is the Real Deal of the Sacred Word of God, the absolute best. I could not believe this Treasure of treasures being offered by Tan at $5.00 per copy! I felt like the Good Thief stealing a Heavenly gift from the Cross. I bought four for family and friends, having earlier provided most with hardbound copies, and expect to buy more. This paperback pocketbook, 1408 pages, weighing 1 ¾ pounds, 5.5 x 1.25 x 8.13 inches, with good size font is the ABC ideal for auto, bed, church, and then some.
I enjoy reading it.Its different from the other versions I have.
This easily handled Bible contains more than the previous Catholic Bible I had used. Text is more complete and quick, salient one line explications are on the bottom margin. Thank You
I love having a version of the Douay-Rheims that is easily accessible and easy to bring along.
I very much enjoy reading my Douay-Rheims Bible. I bought it based on the recommendation of Dr. Taylor Marshall. I find reading it gives me a sense of confidence that I am reading an accurate, unabridged, un-manipulated interpretation of God's Word.
