The Revised Standard Version (RSV) is a revision of the American Revised Version (1901) which was itself a revision of the King James Version (1611). The RSV was translated by 32 scholars along with 50 representatives of cooperating denominational bodies. The translation committee attempted to stay as close as possible to its rich Tyndale-King James heritage. “We have resisted the temptation to use phrases that are merely current usage, and have sought to put the message of the Bible in simple, enduring words that are worthy to stand in the great Tyndale-King James tradition.

3 reviews for Schuyler Quentel RSV with Apocrypha, Dark Green Goatskin Bible

  1. William Paul Johnson, Jr.

    Greetings:

    I have previously reviewed ‘The Schuyler RSV w/ Apocrypha Bible’ in the editions which ‘featured’ full yapp goatskin leather bindings in both ‘classic black’ and ‘firebrick red’. My ‘enthusiasm’ for these two Bibles has not ‘diminished’ in any ‘way, shape or form’…especially as regards ‘the fonts used’ for the typesetting of these ‘absolutely splendid’ editions of THE HOLY BIBLE from SCHUYLER BIBLE PUBLISHERS. I will be ’74 years of age young’ come ‘April of 2022’…and my ‘near-sighted eye-sight’ is still quite good for ‘an old-geezer’ who will be an octogenarian in ‘a little over six years’…!

    It is ‘unfortunate’ that the ‘author’ of the review dated 2 December 2021 suffers from ‘presbyopia’…it would even be ‘more unfortunate’ should he ever suffer from ‘total blindness’…GOD forbid.

    But the point is this: the typesetting for all of ‘the editions’ of ‘The Schuyler RSV w/ Apocrypha Bible’ is magnificent…a ‘true-landmark’ in the history of ‘the publishing’ of ‘The Holy Scriptures’…no ‘ifs’…no ‘ands’…no ‘buts’. Medical ‘conditions’ of ‘its readership’ not with standing.

    Unequivocally…’a FIVE STAR’ Bible…!!!

    Best,
    Bill

    If you are under 40 this review is not for you and my 30-year-old self would give it five stars. Everything about the bible in terms of quality and craftsmanship is excellent. My problem is with the font and font size. I ordered the bible simply because it’s a Quentel and I have one of each. The RSV with Apocrypha was irresistible and I ordered one. Upon opening the bible the narrative text looked strangely dense on the page and reading it was work for this person suffering from presbyopia. It seems that to avoid excess bulk with the Apocrypha they chose to use a smaller font with the RSV. Milo is a good general-purpose font but it is compact with very short ascenders and descenders and just doesn’t work for me at 10 points. I have Quentel associated with 11 point and readable but I will now have to check each edition that comes out.

    This is, in my opinion, the best Schuyler Bible to date!! This Bible contains all that we have come to expect from this premium Bible publisher: best quality binding, best quality paper, and best quality ribbons!! But now, add to that a new type setting of the venerable old Revised Standard Version. The font size is perfect and appears bolder or perhaps darker to my eyes. It’s a wonderful page layout with elegant drop caps and no extraneous clutter. It’s amazing that this Bible actually includes the Apocrypha and yet remains as skinny as a normal Quentel! Schuyler hit this one out of the park. If you are interested in a Bible that retains much of the KJV (including “brethren” instead of “brothers”) and is, in fact, the direct ancestor to the ESV, then you ought to get this edition of the RSV. Thank you, Schuyler!
