Ignatius Bible Edition


The Didache Bible (RSV2CE) presents extensive commentaries, based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church, for each of the books of the Holy Bible. The Didache Bible also includes numerous apologetical inserts to assist the reader in understanding the Church’s teachings on current issues.

After publishing the books of The Didache Series, Midwest Theological Forum set out to fill a need for a Catholic edition of Sacred Scripture with explanatory and apologetical commentaries based on the Catechism of the Catholic Church. The publication of the Didache Bible, based on these principles, fulfills the desire of Pope St. John Paul II as expressed in his Apostolic Constitution Fidei Depositum:

The Catechism of the Catholic Church . . . is a statement of the Church’s faith and of catholic doctrine, attested to or illumined by Sacred Scripture, the Apostolic Tradition and the Church’s Magisterium. I declare it to be a sure norm for teaching the faith. (no. IV)

The Didache Bible (RSV2CE) is a valuable resource for students and those participating in Scripture studies. Ideal for anyone seeking a deeper understanding of the Catholic faith and intended to be accessible by all Catholics in its level of scriptural scholarship.

  • Contains 27 full-color biblical maps, including the journeys of Jesus Christ
  • More than 100 apologetical explanations that help to answer common questions about the faith
  • Includes a comprehensive, 43-page glossary and a topical index
  • The font size for the text of Scripture is 9.5 points which is comparable to the font size used in most business letters
  • The font size for the text of commentary is 8.5 points
  • Two ribbon placeholders
  • Sewn binding

Finally great notes with RSV!


Love having the study notes and CCC references. Wish the helps were not labeled “apologetics” and that they were together rather than scattered randomly through the text. Also don’t like the huge writing all over the front. Something simple like Holy Bible wold be fine, or nothing. The Didache and publishing info. could be put on the spine. Also the binding is beautiful but I’d much prefer a fine, soft cover. I understand that the decision to make it hard was so it would sit nicely on the shelf. Granted, that’s true. But aren’t we supposed to read it? This is a reading/study Bible. Also, the green color is unattractive. I know it’s supposed to match the CCC, but still. With all that, having RSV, CCC and faithful study notes makes up for a lot.
