When I was visiting parishioners, I realized I needed to carry a small bible around. So I decided to order a copy of NRSV Pocket Companion Bible in burgundy bonded leather for a mere $6.95 from Christianbook.com. That is a great deal!
I also ordered The Zondervan Pictorial Encyclopedia of the Bible, 5 Volumes. It’s also a bargain at $29.99 to $39.99. It’s a steal. I can’t wait to get it. I’ve wanted to get a picture bible and thought about the NIV Archaeological Bible but this one will be better. Though it’s not archaeological, this one will satisfy my craving for pictures for a while.
