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.

    I got the Firebrick Red RSV with Apocrypha Full Yapp Bible last year and I love it. The craftsmanship is top notch. The red under gold art gilding looks very nice, the Goatskin has a lovely feel and look to it (something that Faux leather cannot match), the paper is thin but feels very high quality and surprisingly opaque, considering it’s 28 gsm paper and line-matched, which helps a lot, the three red ribbons are beautiful and I love the paragraph layout of the text, over a verse by verse format, as it flows better in my opinion.

    The olive branches for each chapter number as well as the drop caps for the first letter of each chapter is a very nice touch that I think looks very aesthetically pleasing.

    While I am Protestant and I don’t consider the Apocryphal books to be canonical scripture, I do still really appreciate having them as an appendix to this Bible, as they do have a lot of historical insight into Jewish beliefs and customs during the intertestamental period, as well as having some good wisdom, along with the rich history with the Jewish people during the Maccabean revolt recorded in 1 and 2 Maccabees. I think every Christian should at least read those two books.

    Lastly, I really appreciate the cross-references, glossary/concordance and maps too, as they only add to the greatness of this Bible.

    Overall, this is a superb Bible and Schuyler did a great job with it. If you love the King James Version, but want a more up-to-date translation that removes the archaic words, but retains some of the beautiful language, like the thee’s, thou’s and thine’s (but only in reference to God), then I think the RSV translation would be a great choice for you.

    I wish I could give this more stars…..I love this translation and I love how Schyler executed this bible. Both the bible Quentel form factor and the specific bible I received are perfect IMHO. I was excited when I say that Schyler was making an RSV Quentel but I was more excited when I unboxed it….just amazing. The bible was perfectly executed.

    As a practicing Catholic, I can tell you we don’t see bibles like this come around the block often…..like never. I want to thank Schyler from the bottom of my heart for this translation. I am going to buy another copy to have on hand.

    This will definitely outlast me, but to be honest, any paperback bible will probably do the same….just not with as much class. Thanks again Schyler!

    Absolutely beautiful Bible. The craftsmanship on display here is stellar! The font, the quality of the paper, the goatskin leather cover, the red art gilt edges, the yapp, the addition of the Apocrypha and the overall presentation of this Bible is second to none. I am so pleased with this Bible and while it was pretty expensive, it was so worth it!

    I will definitely be ordering from this site again in the future. Well done, Schuyler! This is the first order from you and I am more than happy with my purchase!

    I cannot express how much that I love this Bible. The RSV is now my favorite translation because of this Bible. Schuyler has broken the bar once again. My hat is tipped to this masterpiece representation of the word of God. Amen!!!

  5. Gordon Robertson (verified owner)

    My first RSV since my 1951 red hard cover I got in grade school. I can add nothing that has not been said in the previous reviews except that this might be the nicest Bible Schuyler has produced. I have 6 or 7 other Schuyler bibles of various translations and colors of goatskin covers but this may become my favorite.
    Thank you EB for the best bibles in print. I couldn’t be more satisfied.

    I am simply blown away by this Bible and I can’t put it down. It quickly became integrated into my daily reading and study. I do not have much experience with the RSV translation first hand, but I have been enjoying it a lot. I appreciate that Schuyler printed this translation in a premium format because I had been searching for a quality copy for a while. The full yap goatskin cover is very soft and supple. It lays flat out of the box. It feels great in the hand as well. The paper is high quality, but I expect nothing less from Schuyler. The typeset is beautiful and I love the drop caps at the head of each chapter. This is my fifth Bible from them and they always deliver high quality Bibles that are heirloom quality. Please pick up a copy while you can.

    Well…my goodness…it has only been ‘five short days’ since I reviewed SCHUYLER BIBLE PUBLISHERS’ fabulous new ‘Quentel typesetting’ of the REVISED STANDARD VERSION [RSV] of THE HOLY BIBLE in ‘classic black goatskin leather’:

    In ‘that review’ I alluded to the edition that ‘I purchased’ also in the ‘firebrick red goatskin leather’ binding! Having now had almost ‘an entire’ week to ‘experience’ both editions of this wonderful typesetting of the RSV…allow me ‘the luxury’ to continue further my impressions and assessments by commenting further on the ‘firebrick red goatskin leather’ copy…

    WOW…AMAZING…GORGEOUS…
    etcetera…etcetera…etcetera!!!

    If in ‘500 years’ this edition of the Holy Scriptures isn’t in the ‘same demand’ as the ‘first edition’ of the GUTTENBERG BIBLE…I promise…”I’ll eat ‘my hat’.” (No foolin…).

    The ‘feel’ of the goatskin leather is ‘so buttery’! (No foolin…).

    The ‘deep brown’ leather lining of the Bible compliments the ‘firebrick red’ cover perfectly! (No foolin…).

    And although this is essentially a ‘black letter’ edition…the use of red ink for the ‘drop caps’ and the ‘cross reference numbers’ and the ‘running heads’ at the top of the pages is what contributes a ‘great deal’ to the striking appearance of the typesetting of the Bible. (No foolin…).

    And like the ‘classic black goatskin leather’ edition, the paper used for this Bible is unbelievably smooth ‘to the touch’! You’ll have to experience it ‘first hand’ to see and feel what ‘I mean’!!!

    (The only other ‘editions’ of the Bible in my collection which utilize the same ‘grade of paper’ are the CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS copies of the NEW KING JAMES VERSION [NKJV] in ‘lucious brown calfskin leather’ and ‘deep green goatskin leather’. “NO FOOLING…I do not exaggerate!”)

    Available in five ‘different’ models…by ‘my count’ this review makes ‘no. 23’ of unanimously ‘FIVE STAR’ [*****] rave reviews for these ‘Schuyler editions’ of the ‘RSV Bible’!!! (We can’t all be wrong…).

    Get your copy ‘as soon as you can’…you won’t be able ‘to put it down’. (No foolin…).

    Blessings,
    Bill

    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.

  13. Timothy Crouch (verified owner)

    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.
