Customer Feedback - The Douay Rheims Bible

"The Douay-Rheims Holy Bible I received is more beautiful than I imagined. I wanted one similar to one my parents had before they passed away, and, I assume it went to either my older brother as the 1st born or one of my 4 sisters. I like all the features of the Bible, the top quality leather, gilded edges of fine quality paper, the Family Section, the photos and maps; basically, I love everything about it and started reading it once it was unwrapped.” -William, NJ
