This 6pt font Catholic Bible features a graphic Divine Mercy Vilnius Original design printed into the leather cover. These new bibles showcase the latest technological innovation to come out of our Steubenville creative studio: direct-to-leather printing.
About the Printing:
Our machine uses computer-controlled printheads that slowly move back and forth across each Bible, coating the surface with specially-formulated inks designed to bond with the leather and immediately begin the curing process. The result is a beautiful graphic devotional image that is bonded into the leather rather than adhered to the top of it. Your Bible graphic will not crack, peel, or separate from the cover, and the only way to damage the image is to damage the leather itself. Please note that every personalized bible order will be emailed a digital proof that must be confirmed and approved by the customer before the bible can be printed. Make sure that the email provided with your order is valid and regularly checked. IMPORTANT: once the proof email is sent, you will have three business days to confirm or change the text, layout, spelling, etc. on your bible(s). On the 4th business day after the bible proof is sent, if we do not hear back from you, the bible will be shipped as-is and will not be eligible for a refund due to incorrect text.
About the Bible Itself:
"The Bible" is a shorthand term that comes from a Greek phrase meaning "the books." For Catholics, these are the 73 books inspired by God and written by human hands that make up the canon of Sacred Scripture. Together with Sacred Tradition, Sacred Scripture functions as the direct word of God in our world, informing, teaching, and governing the actions of the Catholic Church and its members for the past 2,000 years.
For most of Christian history, the Bible was not available for private study due to widespread illiteracy and the excessive cost of reproducing copies of the Scriptures by hand. Today, thanks to increased literacy as well as modern printing technologies, the Bible is widely available and distributed around the world.
In contemporary Catholic culture, individual copies of the Bible, often with personalized inscriptions or printing, are commonly given as gifts on occasions of sacramental initiations.
This compact copy of the Bible, bound inside a zippered, bonded leather covering, measures 5" wide by 6" tall and 1.5" deep.
