Description

Due to limited availability, there is a limit of two per household for this Bible. (picture displayed is representative – but is not the RSV full yapp Bible – for color purposes only)

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.

5 reviews for Schuyler Quentel RSV with Apocrypha, Full Yapp Firebrick Red Goatskin Bible

  1. Nathan Keel (verified owner)

    Beautiful goatskin cover. Extremely floppy, which is a good thing! Everything about it is top tier. The paper and inks alone used to make this Bible are more expensive to produce than other Bibles. They are acid-free and will last you multiple lifetimes without yellowing, fading letters, etc. The handmade work is immaculate. The most beautiful red i have ever seen on a Bible. Has the best quality gold gilts and the Jerusalem cross blind stamp looks great! The tooled lines and perimeter stitching was done perfectly. This Bible, and all of the other Schuyler Bibles i’ve purchased are the best you can buy. They are more consistent than Allens, and they look and read just as well. They use the best materials a few steps above Cambridge(which is no slouch either). You will not be disappointed if you buy this! ★★★★★

    Wow. Wow. WOW!
    This Bible is exquisite in every way – content, color, craftsmanship …

    A few things stand out right away:
    1. The use of the beautiful dropcaps at the beginning of every chapter is so aesthetically wonderful & pleasing to the eye. Lovely!
    2. The smaller (than usual) verse numbers makes for a smoother, uninterrupted reading experience.
    3. The bold 10-pt font is a lovely improvement over the Quentel’s regular 11-pt. More words per line ensure that your eyes are not jumping around as much, and the beautiful text draws you into a deeply satisfying and immersive engagement with the Word.
    4. I love the placement of the apocryphal and deuterocanonical books after the NT. Brilliant! And now it’s that much easier to hang around comfortably in Revelation!
    5. The yapp … SOOOO yappalicious! The soft leather willingly conforms to your hands as you hold your Bible. I get to leave my notes on the inside, and my hand imprints on the outside – a true treasure for my children and grandchildren someday!
    6. This RSV Q has a slimmer profile than the ESV Q, NAS Q and NKJ Q (all 28gsm paper). It makes me giddy to imagine how slender the version without the Apocrypha must be!
    7. Superb corners & perimeter stitching. Love the color scheme of this Bible! When in doubt, go RED!! (Somehow, the dark crimson red suits the RSV splendidly)

    I cannot wait to dive in!
    Thank you, Schuyler, for making gorgeous bibles. I read them continually, linger in them longer, carry them everywhere, and treasure the words they carry. God bless your ministry!

    Just got my hands on this. First impressions: It is exquisite. Full yapp goatskin cover feels liquid and special. The printing is very clean and bold and the font size is spot on for these eyes. Very glad to see the RSV get such a wonderful printing. Every choice is well thought out and executed to perfection. Can’t wait to sit with it. Thank You!

    This in a beautiful and welcome addition to the Schuyler lineup. The the binding, printing, and presentation of this Bible in excellent. The translation is a delight to read. I’m delighted to have this Bible in my collection and rotation of Bibles.

    This Bible is absolutely stunning.

    I have a soft spot in my heart for the Revised Standard Version — the common ancestor of the NRSV and ESV, retaining much of the elegance of the KJV (some measure of which, alas, is lost in those two translations) while bringing three and a half centuries’ additional scholarly attention to the translation. It’s also refreshing, in a day when one’s choice of Bible version all too easily becomes a signal of one’s stance on various cultural controversies within and without the Church, to read a translation which predates a number of those controversies. However, since being superseded in mainline circles by the NRSV and in evangelical circles by the ESV, it has been nearly impossible to find a nice typesetting or binding (let alone both at once!) of the RSV … until now. So I was thrilled when Schuyler embarked on the RSV Quentel project, and enthusiastically jumped on the early pre-order.

    I wasn’t sure whether I would like the “Firebrick Red” color (I love darker reds, but find lighter reds obnoxious), so I pre-ordered one of each of the firebrick red and black full-yapp RSVs with Apocrypha. Both are magnificent, but the firebrick red in this case takes the cake; it is on the darker side, not too far from a full-blown burgundy. Matched with the even darker red calfskin liner and the bright red Berisford ribbons — plus the soft red-under-gold page edges — it is an impossibly elegant overall package. The full yapp, with the tooled block outline and subtle perimeter stitching — as well as hand-tooled corners! — is glorious.

    The block is also simply fantastic. I usually favor single-column settings, because they avoid the chopping and skewing of Biblical poetry; but Schuyler’s attention to detail in the typesetting of the Quentels ensures that there is nary a hyphen to be found in the whole book (yes, I’m looking at you, Crossway Omega). The print is unbelievably dark and bold — in fact, there is a little bit of variation between pages in how dark the print is, but the variation is between “quite dark” and “extremely dark” and makes it awfully comfortable to read. I’m also impressed by the paper — quite opaque, not at all glossy, and quite tough — despite it being apparently “only” 28 gsm (I usually opt for 32+, but I would be happy with this 28 for the rest of my life!). And despite containing the Apocrypha and a decent-size glossary, the whole package is impressively thin and light; by no means too heavy to hold in one hand while reading aloud (though for long sermons, one certainly might want a pulpit).

    Schuyler has knocked it out of the park with this one. I am beyond impressed.
