Verse It:All™ Books

Douay–Rheims Catholic Bible

Our Story

The idea behind the VERSE IT:ALL™ Bible began over coffee following a missed trip to church. We were new in town and visiting different churches looking for our niche. Traveling from church to church, Sunday after Sunday, we noticed something interesting. Many parishioners followed along with the sermon, not from the hardcover Bible in the pews, but rather on their phones or tablets. One Sunday, we decided to download a free Bible for our eReader. We were running late and did not review the Bible before leaving for church. Upon arrival, we discovered the service was moved up an hour. So instead, we decided to grab some coffee and read a verse or two on our own. We took our seats at a local coffee house, turned on our eReader, and were immediately surprised at how hard it was to find anything. The free download was hard to navigate, hard to search, just plain hard to use. If we had tried to use it during a service we would still be searching long after coffee and donuts concluded. As eBook designers, we decided to build a better product for ourselves and others.

What Is the Douay–Rheims Bible?

The Douay–Rheims Bible is a translation of the Bible from the Latin Vulgate into English made by members of the English College, Douai, in the service of the Catholic Church. The New Testament portion was published in Reims, France, in 1582, in one volume with extensive commentary and notes. The Old Testament portion was published in two volumes by the University of Douai. The first volume, covering Genesis through Job, was published in 1609; the second, covering Psalms to 2 Machabees plus the apocrypha of the Clementine Vulgate was published in 1610.
