For hundreds of years, people have relied on creating a personal connection with Scripture through personalized bibles. Generations of families have recorded important events, couples have received personalized bibles signifying their new marriages and parents everywhere have loved personalized Roman Catholic Bibles as gifts celebrating First Communion or Confirmation.
Personalized Bibles are especially significant in the Catholic Church. Our understanding of God's Word is the foundation for our faith. When trials occur or important life questions arise, the Bible acts as a spiritual compass.
Here are just a few of the many significant life events where a personalized Bible makes a perfect gift:
- Wedding Bibles signify the connection to God and one another. Those such as the personalized New American Bible Wedding Edition provide places for wedding and marriage record pages and family records sections, creating a portrait of the family in faith.
- The First Communion, or First Holy Communion, is a Catholic Church ceremony. It is the colloquial name for a person's first reception of the Sacrament of the Holy Eucharist. A Child's First Communion Bible is the perfect bible to personalize for such an important event.
- With the act of Confirmation, Catholic children learn the Holy Sacraments and Scriptures that they will practice throughout their lives. A Deluxe Confirmation Bible includes all the study aids needed to understand God's Word and the Church's traditions.
- As young Catholics move forward in their lives, the connection to the scriptures takes on greater significance. The gift of a Personalized New American Bible helps active people keep the Bible close by no matter where they find themselves.
The gift of a personalized Bible communicates a deep sense of support, love and encouragement. It is one that will continually bring the blessings of God's presence through His Word.
