Haydock Bible with commentary compiled by the late Rev. Fr. George Leo Haydock, following the Douay-Rheims Bible
For those of you who do not know about this wonderful Haydock 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! (note: sone oter Haydock editions are missing a lot of the Commentary present in this Edition)
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.
