2 Stars Out Of 5

I had an older New American Bible that I gave to a friend. I thought I would just reorder the same Bible that I had. The description of this Bible seemed exactly like the one I had. When I received it, I expected leather. I did not realize bonded leather is a layered structure of a fiber or paper backer, a pulp made from shredded leather, and a polyurethane coating which is embossed with a leather-like texture. The inside of the cover and first page are plastic. The pages are thin paper and don't look strong enough to hold up. The ink on the back of the page is visible in the background. It is not nearly the quality of my old Bible. I am very disappointed. I would not recommend this to a friend who wants a high quality Bible.
