RSV-CE Is Now Online

I apologize if I'm "Johnny-come-lately" on this one, but I just found the RSV-CE online, which is pretty cool. I've always wanted to be able to use this version in my blog posts and in my conversations and debates with Protestants, but have had to resort to the RSV instead (which is still a lot better than most other bible translations). I don't know if it's legal or not to publish the RSV-CE online, so it may not stay up for very long.

Enjoy it while it lasts!

UPDATE (10/23/10): It appears that the site I originally linked you to is no longer available. Here are two other sites: http://jmom.honlam.org/rsvce/ and EWTN Bible Search.

Pax Christi,

Many thanks for that link. I have used the Etext version of the RSV for reference for some time and it is great to have the Catholic version available. I do hope this iniative is not frustrated by copyright law.

Isn't the Bible in the public domain? Or am I retarded?

Some are and some aren't.

It depends on the translation (I meant to say that earlier).

Nick,
It looks like your link drove the RSVCE site to exceed its bandwidth limit! Here's a link to another version of the RSV with all the Catholic books: http://etext.virginia.edu/rsv.browse.html. It's technically not the Catholic Edition, but it does have the Catholic books. I have it linked on my blog, catholicbiblestudent.com.

I checked just now and it's still up and running, although I doubt this will last long. I have the link to the regular RSV in my sidebar also. Nice blog, btw, although your background definitely hurts my eyes.

"I do hope this iniative is not frustrated by copyright law."

It is too bad that it breaks copyright law, and I used to get frustrated with copyrights, especially with our website housing tons of Catholic information. There is some information we simply can't post because of copyrights.

They really are there for a good reason though. It protects the integrity of the text as well as ensuring those who translated the text are giving a living wage for their hard work. Breaking a copyright really is no different than walking into a store, taking a movie, and walking out without paying for it. It's theft.

I've been using StudyLight.org . They have the Douay-Rheims translation available along with several other good non-Catholic translations. I usually choose the NRSV. (Is there are any differences between the NRSV and NRSV-CE? I think the CE may simply arrange the deuterocanonical books with the other OT books rather than putting them in their own section) Once nice thing is if you click "Set Preferences," you can choose to include deuterocanon Scripture in your searches by default.

Plus, always nice to have your little cheesy Christian cartoon there... I guess. :)
