Exactly as needed!

We ordered this for our grandson's first communion. He specifically asked for traditional as opposed to children's Bible so he'd have it to treasure as well as learn. This version was perfect, and the personalization made him so proud. Thank you!

Beautiful Bible - Photo for personalization inaccurate

The Bible is beautiful but the personalization does not match the photo. In the photo, it is placed neatly down at the bottom. In reality, it is strangely placed in the middle of the cover. I feel that if you are going to differ from the photographs you present, you should contact the customer first to make sure that they want the different look. It's a gift; I looked at a lot of Bible personalization options and chose this one, and I don't like the choice the engraver made.
