For those of you who do not know about this wonderful Bible, here is some information:

The Haydock Bible is a larger-print (12 point) format Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible with a comprehensive Catholic commentary (210 sources used!) and an illustrated Catholic Bible Dictionary and History of the Books of Holy Scripture reproduced from the 1859 edition of Fr. Haydock, whose superb explanations and commentary take up about one-half to two-thirds of each page. The commentary is drawn largely from the Fathers and Doctors of the Church - Absolutely invaluable!

The copious commentary (which is not large print) and accompanying dictionary make it the best English Bible available if you want to understand Holy Scripture. If you want a Bible that is not just the Word of God but will help you to understand the Word of God, then look no further! Old Testament with engravings and illustrations, Space for recording family births, marriages, and deaths, Tables (Biblical weights and measures, etc.), Historical and Chronological Index, New Testament with illustrated Bible Dictionary, Historical and Chronological Index and History of the Books of the Catholic Bible.

Perfect for Confirmation or Wedding gifts!

Rev. George Haydock

To be able to look up any verse and read what the saints, Doctors and Fathers of the Church had to say about it is invaluable!
The notes and quotes from Saints and Doctors of the Church of the blessed Fr. Haydock are original and complete as they were in 1811 when he first published them. There is a later reprint also available here on Amazon, but though it looks beautiful, too, the notes in that one are NOT complete, as many were systematically purged or "cancelled" due to political correctness. Now, since when is someone who is sincerely seeking God wanting to have quotes from the Fathers and Doctors of the Church deleted to please the enemies of the Truth? This bible is simply the best there is in english, if you want to get to heaven and avoid an eternity in hell. The text is easy to read, the notes are wonderful, illuminating and a sure guide to properly interpreting difficult passages of Scripture, and it lays open nicely. It may take me years to fully learn all it contains, but I can think of nothing better I can do with my time left on earth. Read prayerfully, it will turn even a hardened heart to love God. The True, authentic Bible, the Rosary and the latin mass said by validly ordained priests.... like a three-stage rocket to send your soul back to God from whence it came.
This is the ‘holy grail’ of Catholic bibles, with the best, mot faithful commentary of any Catholic translation. This edition is physically gorgeous;it is a reproduction of an old version, immaculately done....
