I am a bit of a children’s Bible snob. I only like the old version of the Beginner’s Bible. They have a new, updated version but it’s not as good. The stories are abbreviated and the pictures are less detailed. No sir, I don’t like it.
I usually have to buy a new Bible every couple of years because the kids are so hard on ours – as they should be! Our Bibles are meant for reading. The problem is that the good version is becoming more and more scarce. After Grace dropped our Bible a couple of weeks ago and knocked the nativity story right out of the middle, I knew it was time for an eBay blitz.
My first on has arrived. It was wrapped in a Spanish newspaper! How funny to see an ad for a Dutch restaurant in Lloyd’s mother tongue.
The inscription kind of tugged at my heart, too. Where are you, Andrew C. Gordon? Do you still love your mother? Did you learn to read in love?
