I bought this for my grandson, who is 15. I had his name embossed. It is just beautiful, and so perfect for his age I am sure it would be good for anyone, but it has a slightly Western look to the embossing along the spine, and seems more masculine than feminine. I am very pleased.

The cover had a vinelike embossed pattern on the side and the gold edging on the pages goes all the way around and really gleams! It has a good feel and weight to it, is thick and heavy, and has glossy illustrations throughout much like an old family bible. However it is a nice personal size! I love it! I had it imprinted with my name and it is so lovely!

My son was so impressed with this bible. We had his name imprinted on it as well and it added a beautiful touch. He is bound & determined to read every bit of God's word!!! This was a 1st communion gift.

This Bible is such a treasure. I have been looking for just the right Catholic Bible for some time now and I have found it with this St. Joseph's Bible. It has wonderful maps, the Stations, the Mysteries of the Rosary, explanations of each book, as well as a family record. I love the gold edging on the pages. I only gave this 4 stars for quality because it's not real leather, even though looks it. I probably should give it 5 stars though because the imitation leather truly is beautiful. I know I will treasure this Bible for many years!! Thank you Christianbook.com!
