Love old Bible books

I call myself a book geek. I just can't seem to buy enough of them. I'm very happy to spend hours sitting in old book stores. I love to read books about the bible, especially the older they are. There something not only magical, but a bit more spiritual in the contents. With age comes wisdom they say.  I can only imagine meeting the author from long ago and seeing them smile to know someone is reading their works. I came across my latest gem at a resale book store yesterday. Titled The Old Testament for New Students by Cecil  F Cheverton, ©1956. Pages yellowed by time, notes written in sidebar by a Mr. Lutz from Fort Worth, TX just adds to the grandeur of my find. Already on chapter 5 and learning new things. Mr Lutz took good notes.


  1. I love old books myself! I have a hymnal, Bible, Common Book Of Prayer, and a theology book from the 1800's.

  2. Hi Bobby Thanks for the comment. My wife gave me a old 1800's pocket Bible this Christmas.
