EWTN Catholic Q&A
Bible translation
Question from Michele on 12-05-2012:

Which Bible translation is the most accurate in meaning to the original text, yet at the same time easily understood for daily reading for an average person like me?

Answer by Fr. John Echert on 12-11-2012:

The RSV Catholic edition, published by Ignatius Press and widely available. Be sure it is the RSV-CE and not the RSV or NRSV.
