My thanks to J. Mark Bertrand for his article on the homepage today offering Bible-buying recommendations. I’d also mention for Catholics the Ignatius Bible: Second Catholic Edition . It’s a Catholic revision of the RSV first done in the 1960s and recently revised again in light of Liturgiam Authenticam. The leather version which I’ve linked is nice and affordable ($25 on Amazon), and the icons of Christ and the four evangelists on the cover are a nice touch.
