En route to Sotheby’s, Bay Psalm Book traces nation’s seesaw religious history

Three hundred and seventy-three years ago, when the chief Puritan “divines” of the young Massachusetts Bay Colony printed their own translation of the Bible’s Book of Psalms, they prided themselves on importing the continent’s very first English printing press and establishing the colony as a cultural and educational center.

What they were certainly not anticipating — the little books sold for 20 pence apiece — was that next Tuesday (Nov. 26), Sotheby’s will be auctioning off one of the 11 surviving copies of the Bay Psalter for between $10 and $30 million dollars. In that expected price range, it will be the most expensive book ever sold in public. ...

I see the green family didn't buy it. I wonder if they just didn't want all that money to go to a liberal church? Bay Psalm Book, published in 1640s, sets new world record after selling for more than $15m at auction.

The BBC has an interesting article about this book, released the day before the auction, Bay Psalm Book: Why the £18m price tag?, which is an excellent article in itself, but why this "church" is selling it is even more interesting, from the article
Aidan Lewis wrote:
"The point is that we're not a museum," says Tom Grant, a trustee at the church. "We're about mission and social justice and serving God's people.

"And holding on to a treasure, that is not furthering the mission of the church."

It is true that a church should never be a museum, but it is not a political organization either The Purpose of the Local Church and Community Issues

Yes, it's a good thing we're far away from the Puritans, as I pointed out, The Inadequacy of Moralism.

They had the seeds of their own destruction firmly planted in their practices and theology, as can be seen from the article of the Unitarians, which you can see in my first message.

"Most churches undoubtedly wore through their copies. Some books probably languished a while as relics of a vanished age: hymns eventually replaced sung psalms, even in most Reformed congregations. By the 1800s, only 11 known copies remained."

and

"Most contemporary evangelicals are theologically distant from the Massachusetts Bay Puritans. But in their exaltation of Scripture, they resemble the old “divines” more than, say, the current leadership at Old South."

says alot about the steps of defection

It was quite an interesting article, I will just mention The Unitarian Controversy and Its Puritan Roots, did some very good side-stepping on how the Puritans evolved into Unitarians. The Puritans were a prime example of The Inadequacy of Moralism

It is going to be interesting to see who will be the buyer. The Green family will at least stop it from being less than six figures. Unless they don't want to give a Church of Christ Church the money? There could be an interesting bidding war for this book, as the article does a good job pointing out.
