  • And why would we be willing to accept instruction in the Faith from Michael Hoffman?

    Fast777 - you are not alone.  I want to re-visit why Mike Hoffman attacks the challoner vulgate translation that I use.  I like it and use it, but I am interested and open to this topic.  

    Mike Hoffman sells the original one I think you are interested in with an old school english translation, but it is expensive, and I think that he is out of stock.  

    revisionisthistory.com is his site.


    You can find a soft-cover version off the "Original and True" Reihms New Testament with easier to follow "corrected" spelling for a decent price on lulu..com. The commentary is direct and not very PC.

  • If you go through Lulu, Lulu has a lot of coupons so look for those before buying through them.

    Lulu has hardcover and softcovers.. I think it's normally best to get a hardcover Bible though it costs a bit more. It'll bear wear & tear a lot better amongst other reasons.
    Sincerely,

  • I believe the soft-cover, pulp version is the only one available. Same with the Leonine breviary in both English and Latin versions.

  • Lighthouse - I know what you are getting at, and I agree with you. But, I have found some of his work to be really good.  His layout of the evil verses from the talmud is great, and he doesn't appear to me to be a wolf.  In these times, I will take what I can get, and be grateful.

  • Confused and confusing threads about translations of the Bible into English seem to be a growth stock hereabouts. I respectfully but urgently petition the OP and any other recent arrivals at CI to go to this thread and thence to the far longer thread (dating from some nine months ago) linked to in the first comment on that page before they repeat old arguments and claims, whether strong or weak, to no good purpose.

    Your children beg to hear the commentary?  Wow.  Some children you have.   :smile:

    Yes, they love the commentary. It all started with a question about Genesis and I said "Let's look it up in the commentary." Everyone ended up enjoying it, so if I have the Haydock in use for what we are doing or reading, they will ask for the commentary to be read.

    They might be future nerds but at least they will know a lot about Sacred Scripture.  :laugh2:

    I proudly use the Douay Rheims printed by St Benedict press. It is complete with footnotes which are 100% orthodox.


    So do I. I believe the Douay Rheims is the Bible every traditional Catholic should use.


    And what of those traditional Catholics that don't speak English? :rolleyes:

    It's discussions like these that make me see some of the problems with trads.  It's one thing to personally prefer one translation over another because you find it easier to read, think it is more poetic, etc.  It is quite another to question the orthodoxy of an approved translation (and its annotations) and search for a more "definitive" version.  By saying that all traditional Catholics should use only one translation (despite there being other approved translations) we become like the King James Only Protestants.

  • If you are interested in a facsimile reprint of an ~1625 AD Douay Rheims this one is available.  It is done in 5 volumes and they are available seperately or also on a CD.  I have read through some of the commentary and it does look very interesting if you are willing to plow through the archaic language.  I am still planning on ordering this sometime just for interests sake but right now I have Dom Gueranger's Liturgical Year on order so I will have to wait a bit before picking something like this up to add to the collection.
