The Augustine Bible is beautiful. It is a paperback, but it has the sewn binding, excellent paper, and a beautiful slip-in case to hold and protect the book. It feels comfortable in the hand. It's beautiful. My one observation is that the font is smaller than I prefer. It is not identified in the description, but to my eye the font size compares closely to a 9 point times new roman font. It would have been helpful to me to know this before I purchased the book. That being said, this is a very well crafted, well designed book that should last for many many years.
The turning point in St. Augustine’s life came when the emptiness within drove him to cry out to God in anguish. As if in answer, he heard children singing “tolle lege,” “take and read.” We are grateful for the privilege to publish The Augustine Bible, and we hope it encourages you to “take and read” with faith, as St. Augustine did, and so to truly hear the voice of God speaking to you in love.

I like this bible very much.
It is a beautiful book with a very nice protective book sleeve. The translation is very readable updated version. I only have had time to read a little of the Old Testament but it has been translated to a more modern English. I am involved in a study of St Paul's letter to the Philippians and am looking forward to using this Bible for it.
