I absolutely LOVE my Bible. I feels right, smells right, perfect size and weight...and, of course, I feel confident in the translation as to it being The Inspired Word of God. Thank you so much! God bless....
I received it on the Immaculate Conception, excellent condition I really like it.
My wife is a RCIA teacher and teaches at other parishes. This is the perfect companion to her wealth of knowledge.
