Douay-Rheims Bible - Black Leather (Smaller Size)
Not a compact Bible but not quite a full size Bible either, this Bible bridges that gap size-wise, but the font size is 12-point.
*Smyth Sewn (section sewn) book bindings are the highest quality book binding available on the market today. They are the hallmark of library quality, archival-safe books because the pages (actually sets of gathered book pages called “signatures”) are physically sewn into the book using binders thread and further reinforced with fabric backing and adhesive to create the most useable and durable books available.
“I was given an NAB Bible when I entered RCIA and until I read the Douay Rheims Bible I didn't know what I was missing. This Bible has a hardcover and excellent quality paper, not to mention beautiful prose and a translation that doesn't have even the hint of political correctness in it the way the NAB does. See Psalm 95.5 (96:5 in NAB) to see what I mean. My one complaint is, like others have mentioned, the maps. They could have been a little clearer but, all in all, the map's lack of clarity is hardly worth not buying this Bible for.” – Justin B., 06/28/2010
“A portable, easy to read Bible! And, the Douay Rheims is the most correct translation available, unless you read descriptive discussion Latin.” – Fred, 11/9/2009
“I am very happy with my copy of the Douay Bible […]. It has a very strong cover and the print is easy to read. – Caine Pieffer, 10/7/2008
“I had been looking for a copy of the Douay-Rheims Bible and I was delighted to find this particular printing. The pictures are in black and white, but still very well done. The inclusion of the encyclical was an excellent addition. Also, the maps, though hard to read at times, still are an excellent aspect to this Bible. I am more than pleased with my purchase and if you haven't sat down to read a Douay-Rheims Bible, you don't know what you're missing.” – Lance W., 7/22/2008
“I am a product of Catholic grade school, high school and college. One of the aspects of ‘growing up Catholic’ was, unfortunately, not much attention paid to reading the Bible. Now at age 62 it is certainly time to spend a little time reading the word of God and if you are like me picking the best publication can be easily accomplished in purchasing the Douay-Rheims Bible as it is a direct translation from the Latin vulgate and its emphasis is on the translation of ‘words’ not ‘meaning.’ An excellent companion to the Douay-Rheims is the ‘A Textual Concordance of Holy Scripture.’ Just about any topic you can think of is quickly found in the Concordance with its appropriate Bible chapter and verse; very handy indeed." – Leo Robinson, 5/10/2007
