Christmas Comercials


Christmas commercials are beginning already, so I thought I'd put together a little list of books that you could get for the collector in your family.  A long time ago I found a Great Site that has a ton of things that I would love to have but just haven't got around to purchasing, and for some reason, others are not as willing to get me something either.



It is a little pricey at $145,900 but it is the real deal!  1100 AD, where can you get a book that old?  



The 1537 Mathew-Tyndale Bible is the "first English language Bible ever translated directly from the original Biblical languages of Hebrew and Greek, and printed in English".  There are only 15 known first editions in existence!!!  How could you not want one of these things?  Don't you know who William Tyndale is? 
This Bible, pictured to the left is a steal at $275,000.  You know that your pastor (or mine) would never have a better Christmas present ever.  Maybe everyone at Grace Baptist Church (Cape Coral, FL) can save their pennies for one of these, perhaps for Pastor appreciation day.



I suppose if you are trying not to spend too much this Christmas, a leaf would still be an awesome gift for someone.  Pictured to the left is a leaf of the previous mentions Bible.  Don't worry, it isn't torn out of one of the 15 every time someone orders a page.  These are left over from putting together whole Bibles when there isn't enough pages to make another complete Bible.  These things would be awesome.  The Great Site lets you choose a specific passage of scripture and send that leaf.  I once called about a passage in Job, but it was unavailable...


There are tons of options and different Bibles and leaves and other books that are old and special at The Great Site.  There is even a English Bible History to read.  You could read about the very Bible that you are thinking of purchasing.  John Wycliffe, William Tyndale, Myles Coverdale, Geneva Bibles!

Anyway, I'd love to have one and so I figure those who read this would love to at least look at them.
