Contains Old and New Testament in easy-to-read type
The popular Medium-Size Gift Edition of the St. Joseph New American (Catholic) Bible Revised Edition from Catholic Book Publishing contains the complete Old and New Testaments, many helpful aids for easy Bible reading including new maps, full-color illustrations, and Family Record and indexed pages.
The beautiful and elegant features of this St. Joseph New American Bible Revised Edition include supple material, blind embossing, foil stamping, precise stitching, and gilded gold page edges to provide an exquisite and unique package for the Word of God.
Note: The 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 Catholic 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.

New American Bible Revised Edition (NAB-RE)
I thought the St. Joseph Bible was really beautiful. I gave it to my grand daughter who had turned 16. I am praying she keeps and USES it for her whole life. I also got her the cover in the same color for her. I would have liked more choices in the colors of the cover, but they did look nice together in the burgundy.
Bible is beautiful, but customer service not so much.

Brown not as shown

I bought the brown because the picture showed it didn't have the gold lettering on the cover that other colors showed. I received the bible and it has the gold lettering and decoration on the cover that the others do. Otherwise it's a very nice bible, I just wish it had the less adorned styling that the picture shows.
good quality, great confirmation gift

I purchased 3 for confirmation gifts. The quality is very good. The online pictures do not do the product justice. You won't be disappointed. I plan to get 2 more for gifts.
I will be buying one for myself.

Wonderful Catholic Bible!
Valarie B.(Blue Ridge Mountains, NC, May 20, 2010)
What a beautiful Bible! I was thrilled to find a CATHOLIC Bible that was both beautiful and not a paperback or hardback. It's not leather, but it looks like it. The only thing that would make it better, is if it was real leather. Pros: Beautiful, Heirloom quality
Wow! What beautiful products!
Jo Putt(Olathe, KS, March 26, 2010)
The Bible I purchased for my niece's confirmation was absolutely beautiful. And she loved her name imprinted on the cover. The internet picture does not do it justice. Very nice quality and a great price.
A Book for Every Day Reading
September(Chicago, IL, March 13, 2010)
I like this bible very much. My only complaint was that the cover had some kind of fragment of material on it when they stamped the name on the front cover. I pulled the fragment off which then left a small blank spot (it hard to describe - like a divot) in one of the gold letters.

I bought this gift for the young man I sponsored for Confirmation. He loved it! I bought the blue color, and it looked very classy. I thought it was great for a young man, but I'm sure young ladies would like it also. It was such a good size.
