New Hobbie....Maybe


In a used book store the other day, I found an old copy of the Reach Out new testament. I remember as a kid,and even when in junior high,
seeing people with this bible.


I had to buy it and thus started my new (but not very cool or very seriously pursued I'm going to guess) hobby of collecting older bibles. I think I'll focus in on student bibles, various "slang" bibles etc.

We've got one of those in our youth room. The students refer to it as the "hippie" bible.

I have activily tried to get rid of those kind of bibles from our Sunday School room. Whenever someone reads form them all the other students go crazy, because of the translation. It always mess-up the flow of conversation. Hey quick question. I want to do a middle school mission trip... resources, ideas? I am in SF Bay Area, CA. Help please.

Now I know where to ship all the 'Extremely Radical Totally Awesome Gnarly Gospel' Editions in the cabinet of our Student Ministries.

Haha. Great hobby. If I find a "The Way" Bible I will send it your way.

I saw a Bible called "Da Jesus Book" while in Hawaii. Some sort of Islander meets Jamaican version.
