I finally went ahead and bought a new Bible.
My old “go-to” Bible was an NASB that I bought at the Tattered Cover in Denver back in 2002, on my first trip back from Hungary after moving there as a missionary. I read that Bible and preached from it for years. It has coffee stains, ripped pages, and a broken binding, which I superglued back together twice.
I still plan to use it. How could I just put an old friend on the shelf?
There’s a saying, that goes: “If your Bible is falling apart, your life probably isn’t.”
I plan to read this new one until the cover falls off of it too.
One thought on “If Your Bible is Falling Apart…”
Buying a new Bible tends to be a bittersweet activity. The last Bible I had I gave to a guy in Romania because he wanted an English translation of the Bible, so I was quite happy when I came home and got a new one.
