How much is a Bible worth?

October 13, 2009

Apparently, up to a 5 figure sum!

Today, we were shown in church history a selection of books from Moore College’s Rare Books Collection. One on display was a first edition Tyndale Bible from the 16th Century. Tyndale’s Bible was the first to be published in English. Although this particular Bible cost a lot of money to purchase, many lost their lives over it (particularly during the Catholic Queen Mary’s reign) as protestants sought to keep the word of God accessible. Thanks goes to God for enabling his word to be passed down so that we can know him through it.
