    Larger font than most Bibles that I have seen

    The New American Bible is easy to read and inexpensive. You may want to get the hard bound edition, but I was pressed for time. The paperback edition was all that was available when I made my purchase. Of course, this is the recognized standard of the Catholic Church today.
