This popular and well sized St. Joseph's Bible is a recognized standard in the Catholic Church today. The rich leather material, gold embossing, and decorative gilding combine to provide a lovely package for the Word of God. The red color along with the presentation page make this the perfect bible for those receiving the sacrament of Confirmation this year. With full color illustrations, and the convenient extras, this bible will help enrich your spiritual life.
Note: The Catholic Bible readings used in the current missals & lectionaries & LOTH use an older version of the NAB translation that has now been updated in all the new NAB Bibles currently being printed. For this reason, this NAB Bible will be close (but not exactly word-for-word) to the readings you will hear at Mass. It is not possible to purchase an older NAB translation to exactly match the Mass readings, because they are no longer in print.

|Review:||Size quality makes this bible useable for everyday plus has appropriate sections for family history. Really needs to be thumb indexed. Flag type indexes work but tear pages after long use. We gave this bible as wedding gift with hopes of daily use in lieu of a heavy large bible that would only grace a table. Best Uses: All bible readings; Cons: Missing thumb index; Pros: Durable, Good Value, High Quality|

My grandson got up in the middle of a DVD movie on WWll, went into the kitchen, brought the Bible back into the family room and sat down to read it! That's high praise for a teen-age boy to do that! Best Uses: Gift, Older Readers, Reference; Cons: Engraving a bit uneven; Describe Yourself: Everyday Reader; Pros: Easy To Read|
