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.“

My search for an RSV translation from 1971, beautifully bound with superior typeset from 2k/Denmark AND the expanded apocrypha ended when I saw this edition published by EVB. My copy is an excellent example of how Bibles are supposed to be constructed and published. I especially appreciate the single calfskin liner which avoids a seam near the head and tail band. No synthetic liner here, which Cambridge still insists are putting in their premium editions. I don’t see overcast stitching, however, in some Bibles it creates an odd lay on the first signature so I don’t miss it. The leather is soft and has a nice flop. This is my first full yapp and I must say, I really do like it. I thought it may be an issue until I had it in my hands. It accomplishes what the design is for – protecting the gilt. The French paper is superior and feels like cotton. The ghosting is not an issue that some reviewers have said. The ribbons are of high quality and double sided satin, cut perfectly. My version does not have the book of Numbers 16:16 typo. The binding doesn’t seem to be too tight and the signatures lay flat in Genesis and the maps. There are no chapter and paragraph headings, but following in the tradition of the KJV and the RSV, I can understand why. I also very much appreciate the expanded apocrypha which most publishers do not include, especially Psalm 151 and the extra chapters in Daniel. Nice job EVB. I tried to find a flaw or blemish but I was unable. The text is inerrant and infallible, while being bound into the perfect heirloom volume, worthy of passing down through generations. Thank you EVB, All my needs were fulfilled with this edition.
Perhaps the nicest Bible that I own. The Revised Standard Version translation is a masterpiece among modern translations that was gone too soon. The Psalms are some of the best renderings of Hebrew poetry updated from the KJV English. Most Bible Scholars would put the RSV as the true successor to the KJV in terms of modern English and yet still retaining the KJV beauty and grace.
Both the NRSV and the ESV are scriptural descendants of the RSV, but neither quite match the elegance of the RSV when it comes to rendering scripture in a modern yet beautiful balance.
I hope that Evangelical Bible can produce a Personal Size Quentel to go a long with my full sized Quentel. Thanks for your work in making this beautiful translation available in a beautifully crafted modern Bible.
I am grateful to be able to own a complete Bible in a premium build. The Goatskin is soft and supple, the typeface is both readable and pleasing to the eye. Hopefully more premium Bibles with the Deuterocanonical books continue to be released; there is certainly a market for it.
This truly a gorgeous bible. I’m so grateful to have the RSV w/ Apocrypha, Deuterocanonicals, in a premium leather edition. The typesetting and font are elegant and very readable. The craftsmanship of this bible is exceptional.

I am a Roman Catholic; there aren’t that many complete Catholic translations out there. My preferred as always been the RSV, I grew up with as a Presbyterian. I’m delighted by this work of art. I’ve owned at least 50 different Bibles in my lifetime, but none of this quality of construction. The full yap cover rivals those that I’ve had rebound before. The font is easy to read for these aging eyes. It was worth the wait, and thank you, Evangelical Bible, for offering Holy Bibles to the people of the church that canonized and compiled our Bible!
Nathan Keel –
This Bible looks amazing and everything about it is perfect. I’m not a fan of black Bibles. They’re plain in my opinion, but this one changed my mind! My first premium Bible in black, and it looks amazing! Even the shade of black looks better than any others i’ve seen. The red and black theme looks awesome together. The paper is more opaque than some 40 gsm papers that are out there. The full yapp is awesome, and i hope Schuyler continues producing them! You will not regret this Bible!
Carolyn Fiore –
Beautiful! Superb craftsmanship and materials. Great customer service. Such quality!!!
I agree with the above praise for this edition of the RSV. I hope that other leather goatskin colors (such as purple and blue) in full yapp covers will be forthcoming. Thanks for all craftsmen (craftspeople) who worked on this magnificent Bible. I will likely buy another – or two.

“Breathtaking…A MASTERPIECE…An ‘Absolute’ Spiritual Delight…”
For too long has the ‘mid-twentieth century’ REVISED STANDARD VERSION [RSV] ‘English language’ translation of THE HOLY BIBLE been neglected ‘at large’ for the most part by Bible publishers. If not for ‘the superb and highly regarded’ 1977 Ecumenical Study Bible edition of THE NEW OXFORD ANNOTATED BIBLE WITH THE APOCRYPHA (Revised Standard Version)…the RSV would have ‘long ago’ been forgotten…a most unfortunate outcome for what is in ‘my opinion’ the ‘Gold standard’ of the Holy Scriptures in the ‘English language’.
SCHUYLER BIBLE PUBLISHERS are to be thoroughly congratulated for their new typesetting of the RSV…it is magnificent! ‘No foolin…’
Printed & Bound by ‘Royal Jongbloed bv’ in the [ ] Netherlands…paper supplied by ‘Paperteries du Leman’, Thonon-les-Bains, [ ] France…and with typesetting by 2K/DENMARK, Hojbjerg, [ ] Denmark…I HAVE NEVER SEEN BETTER! ‘No foolin…’
The ‘black goatskin’ leather cover (with red leather lining) is ‘simply heavenly’! ‘No foolin…’
The ‘full yap’ cover makes the gorgeous ‘red-under-gold’ art gilting even more ‘enticing’ to behold! ‘No foolin…’
The exquisite Schuyler Bible maps (with ‘references’ printed on them) represent a ‘new epitome’ of ‘the art’ of Bible map cartography! ‘No foolin…’
The voluminous number of ‘cross references’ plus the extensive section of this Bible which includes a ‘concise glossary and concordance’ are awesome! ‘No foolin…’
I might ‘also mention’ that modern editions of THE HOLY BIBLE which contain ‘the Books Called Apocrypha’ have the word ‘APOCRYPHA’ printed on ‘the spine’ of the Bible. This Bible does not…
Also…editions of the Bible which do contain ‘the Apocrypha’ (such as the KING JAMES VERSION [KJV] and the NEW REVISED STANDARD VERSION [NRSV]…) place ‘these books’ between ‘the Old & New Testaments’. This edition of the RSV does not. Following ‘the example’ of the 1977 edition of the RSV mentioned before…’the Apocrypha’ is placed after the ‘Book of Revelation’ in THE NEW TESTAMENT.
Because ‘the typesetting’ of this Bible is ‘so legible’…not only can it ‘serve’ as ‘a personal Bible’ but it could also be ‘very useful’ as a ‘pulpit and/or lectern’ Bible!
(Also…not only did I purchase this typesetting of this Bible in the ‘classic black yap’ goatskin edition…but I also purchased the ‘firebrick red yap’ goatskin edition too! It as ‘equally wonderful’ as the ‘black edition’!)
As a ‘hopelessly addicted collector of Bibles’ what more can I say…except…
