Hi, guys —

  • What Catholic Study Bible would you recommend?

I have been told the Didache Bible is good, but I've also heard of the Ignatius Bible.

  • Are there any others you'd recommend above these?

Thanks in advance,

Eric replied:

Hi, Emma —

Both are excellent. I primarily use the Ignatius.

I don't have the Didache but I've heard very good stuff about it.

Emma —

I have both and love both.

It's a matter of taste and what you're looking for in the Explanatory extra text of a Bible.


Bob replied:

Dear Emma,

I like the RSVCE, as published by the Ignatius Press for the New Testament; the notes are excellent and the text is very user friendly. See here:

I also like the Douay Rheims, but it is kind of an acquired taste—Old Style English with a lot of thees and thous. It follows the Vulgate and therefore is a good translation of the centuries old Catholic Standard.
