I ordered this from the United States on a Sunday, and received it on Tuesday! Really impressed with the speed of international shipping (especially for the cost) utilized by CTS - thank you! As a Protestant researching the Catholic faith, I am quite eager to read the deuterocanonicals and this Bible was recommended to me by a colleague. Upon opening the package and quickly thumbing through the Bible, I am impressed with the quality and appearance, and am pleased to see all the books organized continuously (instead of the apocryphal books as an appendix). This Bible feels very sturdy and should last many, many years! Given the quality and shopping/shipping experience, I will not hesitate to recommend CTS.

My only problem with this bible was that it wasn't in flexi binding. And now CTS have produced that I might get one. Otherwise this is a beautiful bible and a joy to use. The binding and format are attractive, durable and practical. I like the ribbons (very very useful) and I like the additional material. The introductions are helpful and the text (Jerusalem Bible) is the one I grew up with. Much as I like the NRSV, this is my "go to bible" for prayer, and I read it alongside the NRSV for study. CTS have produced a beautiful bible. OK, the New Jerusalem has been produced and NRSV, NABRE, but the Jerusalem still speaks to many of us. For lectio divina, quiet reading or reading alongside a commentary this Bible enriches my life.
