      I ordered this bible after poking around the internet for what is the most faithful translation recommended for Catholics, which is important to me, as a follower of the Roman Catholic Church. This wasn’t an easy question to answer definitively, I soon discovered, but more and more

      sites seemed to point to this, the so-called “Ignatius Bible” by Ignatius Press.

      The Ignatius Bible is a Revised Standard Version, “Second Catholic Edition.” The latter refers to the fact that the Ignatius Bible includes revisions recommended by the 1943 Encyclical Letter, “Divino Afflante Spiritu.” This lends some authenticity to the translation as far as adherence to Church teaching goes. Indeed, the transcription of the “Our Father,” the Magnificat, and other areas of this Bible are recreated in adherence with current Church-approved ways of saying these prayers and devotionals.

      The “Deuterocanonical” books are also included here,

      but some of the more underused of those books are not. There’s an attempt, as is made evident by the useful “Introduction” section at the beginning of the Bible, to reconcile traditional Protestant objections to the inclusion of these books, while still including them. This is accomplished
      by an implied sense in the order of the books that these books may, indeed, be apocryphal, which is the view adopted by most Protestants.

      Overall, I’m thoroughly pleased with the Ignatius Bible. It is authentic, easy to read, and maintains an acknowledgement of the Catholic Church’s recommendations for maintaining scriptural authenticity.
