366 Project - Day 335 - "The Word"

November 30, 2016 - "The Word"

The cover of my "new" Holy Bible.

I say that it is "new", in that it is new to me - though it was actually printed over two decades ago. It's a large, leather-bound Fireside Catholic Parish Edition of the NAB. I've wanted to get one to have as a large "family Bible" for quite a while now... but new ones cost $100 or more. I decided to look for a used one that was still in very good condition. Unfortunately most of the ones I found, over the last several months of looking, have either been much older editions, have been written in, are in "obviously used" condition - or, are still too expensive... $50 or more.

Finally I found this one - which is in "like new" condition... and cost less than $15 with shipping - so it was very much "meant to be".

Next step? A wooden Bible stand to display it on... which I just ordered today. Together they are sort of an early Christmas present to me, from me!
