Virgina Man Puts 100 Prized Bibles Up for Auction
On Thursday, at a rare book auction in Manhattan, the 59-year-old retired real estate developer, a self-described devout Christian who avoids affiliation with any denomination and deeply dislikes "political Christians," is selling his Aitken Bible. It's expected to go for at least $40,000. In the same auction, he's also selling his copy of the Bay Psalm Book, a circa 1682 edition of the first book printed in British America (official title of that edition, a variation on the original: "The Psalms, Hymns, and Spiritual Songs of the Old and New Testament, Faithfully Translated into English Metre.")

It is one of the rarest books in American publishing and this is the first time an early edition of the book has been on the public market in nearly a quarter-century. It, too, is expected to go for more than $40,000.

The sale of those and more than 100 other Bibles in Meadows's collection is "a very ...

Quite correct, Brimstone. Old Bibles those worth anything to collectors should be sold and the money used for Christian purposes, when you can get a good printed bible for around $10, e.g., NAS Large Print Pew Bible, you could use that money to pass out many of those to various people, and of course various Bible versions are free, yes, even the KJV with Strong's numbers etc., from:
http://www.crosswire.com
If, you have a computer to run a Bible program. You probably can download a free program to read printed material as well, so you just sit there and listen to it, e.g., Balabolka 1.0 which works well on Windows XP and Windows 98. I would think that it might handle Elizabethan English? Anyway, another free program.

So, if I had a Bible that was worth something to collectors I would sell it, and put the money to good use.

"is selling his Aitken Bible. It's expected to go for at least $40,000."

I don't think that God's people will buy this collection. Their use of God's resources will rather benefit God's purpose and plan for those in need.
