In fact, we love them.
We smell the leather, and analyze the paper. Here at the Bible Buying Guide, Bible editions score high marks with us by featuring real leather covers (goat, sheep, cow - just not bonded!) sewn bindings (stitching not glue!) and modern features such as high quality paper and line-matching.
We buy, collect, and trade. It's our hobby and passion.
And so it was a great reminder for me when I attended the local Gideon International chapter's recent Pastors' Appreciation dinner last week. Together, we celebrated one of the Bibles that God is using to change the world: the small, 4.75" X 3" pocket New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs. Let's go ahead and do a quick review, and then I'll tell you why God is using it all over the world.
