So this is the first ever giveaway for the website. I thought that seeing as how one of the axes I like to grind is the importance of being precise concerning the scriptures, that I would offer up a piece of biblical history. The giveaway therefore is a framed bible leaf from the Geneva Bible, circa 1605, complete with a a legit certificate of authenticity. Originally printed in 1560, the Geneva Bible was the primary Bible used in the 16th century by the reformers, and was the go-to bible until the King James Version of 1611.
Seeing as how I only have a few readers, I would imagine the odds of winning are extremely good. In order to be entered, all you have to do is post a comment in the comment section of this post, telling me in one sentence each what is your favorite portion of scripture, your favorite hymn, and why. I’ll put them in a hat and pick one at random [I stress, your odds of winning are really, really good]
The winner will be announced in a separate post Tuesday the 23rd.
Have fun, and God bless!
*note, i am giving away a complete bible leaf, not just a fragment of a page. i included that corner closeup so you could see the old school “s’ “, which look like “f’s”
