A Fantastic Gift, small type though
This bible is well made. Beware that the type is very small, in fact for a personal size, this bible is on the small side-approximate outer measurements= 7"x5"x1.5".<BR/>The features are more than advertised here and I will list them for you-<BR/>Illustrated Family Record Section.<BR/>over 60 Color Illustrations.<BR/>Footnotes and Cross references in text.<BR/>Over 30 self explaining maps in Context.<BR/>Color photos of the Holy Land.<BR/>Chronology of History of Israel.<BR/>"Bible and Catholic life".<BR/>Vatican II Constitution of Divine Revelation.<BR/>Bible Dictionary.<BR/>Doctrinal Bible index.<BR/>Liturgical Index of Sunday Readings.<BR/>Overall a fine bible for the price!

Prefer New American to New Translation
I purchased this Bible for my daughter who was going on a Christian retreat. I chose this particular Bible for several reasons. First, I reviewed a whole bookcase of Bibles, but this seemed the best choice for the price. Secondly, I like the cover on this particular copy because it will hold up better than a paperback (which cost about $11 versus the $21 I paid). Lastly, I have researched and asked advice about the different Bible translations. For Catholics, I have been told to chose the New American Bible. I have been told by many people that are knowledgeable about the Bible that the New Translation Bibles are watered down versions. Regardless of these opinions, I simply chose this Bible because of the publisher: Catholic Book Publishing Company.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
