Douay-Rheims Hardbound Bible

The Holy Ghost

SKU: 6736  |  ISBN: 1930278241

Even after all of the modern "revisions" of the Bible that are now available to Catholics, the Douay-Rheims version (the only Catholic English Bible in use for almost 400 years), is still the very best ever produced. This is a beautiful hardbound leather edition, which fills the great need for a small (6"x9") high quality 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.

Good Bible

I have owned several versions of the Douay-Rheims bible, including the so-called large print. They all have about a 12-font print. This version is by far my favorite. The pages are not super thin and the print is bold enough that it's easier to read than my other bibles. Hopefully, someone will come out with a true large font (14 or up) Douay Rheims. Until then, this one is my go-to.

This edition is very well made.

The soft spine allows the bible to lay flat when opened as opposed to a stiff binding that needs to be cracked open and seems to want to close by itself. The best part is the dark, crystal clear printing that makes it so easy to read. Really well thought out for older people like myself with not no sharp eyes.
