In early April, Ave Maria Press will be publishing the Ave Catholic Notetaking Bible in both hardcover and leathersoft editions. It will feature the Revised Standard Version – Second Catholic Edition (RSV-2CE) with a single-column layout, generous margins, a sewn binding, and two ribbon markers. The promotional webpage from Ave Maria Press advertises extra-thick paper and a large font size, although it doesn’t specify the weight of the paper or the numerical point-size of the font.
Interestingly, there will also be cross-references to the Catechism of the Catholic Church, as well as a few essays by Catholic evangelists and professors:
- “Overview of the Bible” by John Bergsma
- “Introduction to the Old Testament” by Anthony Pagliarini
- “Introduction to the New Testament” and “Advent Reading Plan” by Sarah Christmyer
- “Eight Steps to Becoming a Bible Reader” by Mark Hart
- “How to Love the Word” by Sonja Corbitt
- “One Year Bible Chronological Reading Plan” by Meg Hunter-Kilmer
- Lent Reading Plan
The hardcover is listed at $49.95, and the leathersoft is $59.95. Ave Maria Press is currently offering 20% off and free shipping on pre-orders.

Those are beautiful! I wish they were offering them in black leather, though.
To the blog owner: do you think you’ll be purchasing one of these?
It’s a very nice volume. I’m not certain if I’ll be selected to receive a review copy or not. I generally don’t write notes in my Bibles, so I would have difficulty justifying purchasing this for myself. But I will hold out hope to be able to review a copy for the blog audience.
Any news if there is ESVCE large print going to be released?
So far I haven’t heard anything, but I think it’s only a matter of time before the Augustine Institute releases a large print edition.
I called Augustine Institute about a possible ESVCE premium edition. Nothing in the pipeline about that BUT they did confirm their next big release is a large print edition of the ESVCE. No further details were able to be provided. I wish I could remember when the estimated release date is. End of this year??? Someone may have to call to confirm.
I emailed the publisher, and they said the paper weight is 45 GSM.
To clarify, my comment about 45 GSM referred to the Ave Catholic Notetaking Bible.
