The Holy Bible is like a mirror before our mind’s eye. In it we see our inner face. From the Scriptures we can learn our spiritual deformities and beauties. And there too we discover the progress we are making and how far we are from perfection.”
—Saint Gregory the Great

What a blessing to have the Douay Rheims in a lightweight leather bound cover. It has made it easier to read the Bible everyday. My only issue is that it does not have the red lettering for the voice of God. Being a revert, and this being the first time reading the Bible, it would have helped me. Otherwise, 5 Big Stars! I love it. ??❤️
I ordered my Douay-Rheims Bible a few years ago, and It's still just as beautiful as the day I got it! The book is well made and high quality with black leather for the cover, golden edges for the pages and a ribbon marker. If you;re looking to purchase a Bible for yourself or for someone else, I highly recommend the Saint Benedict Press/TAN Books version of the Douay-Rheims.
I walked into the Christian gift store and had no intention on purchasing a bible, as I have a few. I admit I do love the Douay-Rheims and my copy is old. I picked up this bible and within 30 seconds I knew it was going home with me. It is a wonderful bible, and what I really loved about it was the soft color of the pages, It's very easy on the eyes. It is a gentle off-white, and while the print is not the large print I usually buy, I could read it. The words of Christ are in red! The cover is leather, which was a bonus. It feels so good in your hands, I drove all the way home holding on to it. The price was $59.95, and that is what is being charged here, so, It's a good price, and for the quality and feel of the bible, well worth it.
This is a beautiful Bible that is very high quality! Although the print size is small, it is very readable (for a young buck with good eyes).
Please let me know whether it is available in Portugal
I wish you put the size and measurements of the Bibles so we know if it is what we are looking for. Me specific pocket bible. I love the Douay Rheims Bible. It is the prefered Bible Our Mother in Heaven chooses.
Beautiful Bible. Good translation. The words Jesus spoke are printed in RED. I would recommend this Bible to you.
Love it! It is the perfect size and I love the feel and the weight. I like the translation very much.The typeface is easy to read though on the smaller size - so if you need òlarge print this one may not be suitable. The quality of the cover - feels expensive and the pages are are nice, thin so as not to add to the weight too much. I like to read in bed and the size of the one I replaced was too big and bulky. I would have liked an additional ribbon, but one is fine.
