<p>I'm thinking about purchasing a new Bible...the RSV (Revised Standard Version - Catholic Edition).  I've been looking online and I'm wondering if anyone has any input regarding the Ignatius Press vesus the St. Benedict Press.  If you have used - or even just looked at in person - one or the other or both, what did you like or dislike and would you recommend one over the other.  Thank you!</p>

<br><br><p>I'm Orthodox, but I LOVE the Ignatius Bible RSV - second edition (the one with the icons of Christ and the symbols for the four evangelists on the cover). I much prefer the RSV translation, but it's difficult to find these days.  My parish prefers the RSV for liturgical use (as do many Orthodox) and it chants nicely! I have the Ignatius NT & Psalms only edition - that's my primary small Bible that gets heavy use. Beautiful little edition. Type easy on the eyes, even though it's a small volume. The Ignatius NT Study Bible is also very good - HUGE volume though ( I have the paperback). In our choir area in my parish, we have the complete RSV.</p>

<p>Go for it! Dignified translation that rolls off the tongue easily and is good for memorization of the Psalter. No Thees/Thou.</p>
