The Haydock Bible – A Catholic Bible commentary compiled by the late Rev. Fr. George Leo Haydock, following the Douay-Rheims Bible
The Haydock Bible is a larger-print (12 point) format Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible with a comprehensive Catholic commentary, illustrated Catholic Bible dictionary, and history of the books of Holy Scripture are reproduced from the 1859 edition of Fr. Haydock, whose superb explanations and commentary cover a large portion of each page.
The invaluable commentary is drawn largely from the Fathers and Doctors of the Church. The copious commentary (which is NOT large print) and accompanying dictionary make it the best Bible available with a guide to understanding Holy Scripture.

Previous editions were in two softcover volumes. This edition is one hardcover volume on fine Bible paper with a gold-leaf image on the burgundy leather cover along with a satin ribbon marker.
