Saint Benedict Press Bibles Longevity/Durability

Hey all! I am thinking about investing in the Saint Benedict Press Douay Rheims. Could anyone here who has had one for awhile that they use regularly comment on the durability? The thing that concerns me the most is the fact that is is glued binding and not sewn. I usually only buy sewn binding, but the SBP DR is so nice that, if I know for a fact that it will last me, I may have to make an exception.

I should add, if you’ve owned any SBP Bibles, feel free to let me know what you think. I believe they all utilize the same binding.
