Bible In taking a long hiatus from the blog, I lost some of my readers. I think the best way to get my peeps back, and hopefully find new followers is to have a contest.
I thought long and hard what I could give away…
A great idea. But the amount might dilute the appeal.
What about a book? Giving away our upcoming book would be perfect, except it’s not out yet.
Then what book?
Then I see it.
A loved on, leather bound, gilded edged 80+ plus-year-old King James Version Bible. The perfect prize. What gift is more precious than God’s word? I’ve never been able to pass one up and over the years have given many away. I love thinking about the prayers sent, the hope embraced as generations gripped this old Bible in faith. I ponder the name written on the inside cover, question the underlined scriptures and earmarked pages. With that said, there are a few of these gems still around my house I have yet to loosen my grip on; the really special ones.
Truth told I don’t read my antique Bibles. Why? Because I tend to abuse them… dragging them everywhere, writing notes, underlining, bending corners. I confess (sheepishly) one page of my reading Bible has a coffee cup ring.
Here’s a few details–
It’s unique because it begins with a beautiful dedication by James. The condition is very good, not perfect, with faded gilded edges, a name written inside, a few dogeared corners and aesthetic wear to the supple leather binding. Old Bibles are hard to date, rarely having a printed date. Since my profession is an antiques dealer, I can make a semi-educated guess that it’s from the 1930s and guarantee it is at least 80 years old.
