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.“

Jedidiah Tritle –
It’s the most beautiful Bible – and perhaps the most beautiful book – I’ve ever owned. I was apprehensive about the “full yapp” since I’ve never owned a book with that particular feature, but I’ve come to really like it. The yapp makes it possible to carry this Bible in a bag or satchel without destroying the cover. I was worried that this Bible would be “too nice” to carry outside the house, but I’ve found it to be very durable and very easy to carry due to its relatively thin size. The font is comfortable to read in any lighting, the typesetting and pagination is very intuitive, and very little space is wasted on each page – without ever feeling cramped. I was slightly worried about the lack of subheadings, but I have found that I actually prefer the lack of subheadings since making this purchase! I have to work harder to memorize where passages are that I want to return to, and it makes the reading experience distraction-free. Also, the cross-references are outstanding. And, while they are just decorative, the drop caps are seriously awesome. It feels like reading a medieval illuminated manuscript, as is fitting for the Word! All in all, this is a thing of beauty, and it’s a fitting printing of God’s Word! Most importantly, the content inside is exactly what I’m looking for. As a Catholic, I want the full canon. Having the additional books found in the LXX and Vulgate (and some Orthodox canons) are a wonderful addition, as well. I have found that the elegance and accuracy of the 1971 RSV strikes the perfect balance for me of being just modern enough to be trustworthy on a scholarly level, but elegant enough (especially in the Psalms) for prayer. If you’re Catholic or Orthodox, or just interested in the canon of Scripture that your forebearers would have read, and you’re looking for the best RSV on the market, this IS your choice.

I recently purchased a Schuyler Imperial Blue RSV Quentel Bible. I have purchased several Schuyler Bibles, and have been thrilled with all of them. The RSV was the version I grew up with, being born in 1953. I had no idea that life would begin to pass this version by, and so I decided to see what all the praise was about when I first purchased a Schuyler. It’s no longer a mystery to me. From the look of the cover and how it is satisfying to touch, to the font size (perfect for an older reader like me) to the decorative and stunning beginning of each chapter, it is a joy to read. I love this familiar (to me) version of the Holy Bible, and I have seen nothing in any book binding to surpass this Bible. I’m glad Evangelical Bible carries Schuyler Bibles and I am very thankful for their superb customer service.

First time buyer from evangelicalbible.com and Schuyler, but as an Orthodox Christian I couldn’t pass up the first opportunity to have a really excellent quality RSV Bible with our full canon. The RSV can’t be found in decent leather these days, let alone find one that’s newly printed – suffice to say that Schuyler and evangelicalbible.com have outdone themselves well in preserving one of the most important versions in Biblical scholarship and one that was the first English Bible to consider usage by all denominations, including us Orthodox.
I was acquainted with “genuine leather” Bibles from your typical book stores, but I was quite surprised at the quality behind this goatskin leather. While I am a fan of more… solid (?) bindings, this is not a critique to the quality by any means. It makes me only appreciate it more.
I’ve got absolutely no issues to report with the Bible, the text or the binding. It’s quite a blessing.
Now the real question: personal size edition when? 😛

Absolutely beautiful! This is a great shade of blue. Nice, dark, rich color. The ribbons are wide satin, and the gilt on the edges is a perfect complement. The binding is superb, of course. My favorite feature, by far, are the drop caps in the text. It’s just such a nice, elegant touch. I’m having a hard time restraining myself from buying more copies in different colors!
