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.

Even after all of the modern revisions of the Bible that are now available to Catholics, many still think that the Douay-Rheims version, (the only English translation of the Latin Vulgate Bible in use for almost 400 years) is the very best ever produced. We are proud to offer this beautiful bonded leather hardbound edition for only $39.95! The text is clear and easy to read and the two satin ribbons mark he pages where your daily reading is to begin. This Bible fills the need for a small (5 1/2" x 8 1/2" x 2"), good quality, hardbound Douay-Rheims Bible. It is a perfect gift for Christmas, First Communions, Confirmations, weddings, birthdays, etc. and is also great for those who want a portable Bible which is legible, durable, and handsome.

*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.


“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
