Another Catholic Study Bible

Well, it isn't exactly a study Bible, but a comparative Bible. Rich Leonardi from Ten Reasons gives a review:

We recently purchased The Catholic Comparative New Testament, a book containing comparative translations from eight Bibles: Douay-Rheims Bible, Revised Standard Version, New American Bible, New Revised Standard Bible, Jerusalem Bible, Good News Translation, and New Jerusalem Bible. It's a useful resource, allowing readers to examine the handiwork of translators in a side-by-side format.

I'd like to have a comparative Bible with the King James Version, Revised Standard Version, and New International Version. The RSV is the one I use most often personally, but people I speak with online often use the KJV, and in real life, the NIV. It would be nice to have them all on the same page for reference, instead of dragging them all out.

I listed some Catholic study Bibles in this previous post.

Apologies to anyone hoping to see the yearbook Kelly. My real yearbook pictures are embarrassing enough, I'm not going to get a new collection of embarrassing photos!

At, you can look up a passage, then select various translations and "update" it. So you can look up John 6:54 in the NIV, then update it to the KJV, then update it to the NKJV.

It doesn't carry Catholic translations, though.

I use that resource a lot. But it would be nice to have it in one volume, with a column for each translation.

I do have a parallel Bible with Matthew, Mark, and Luke side by side, so you can see where they are almost word for word, and where they have different verses.
