NOTE: This wish has been filled. Many thanks to all who offered. That alone was very moving. In response I’ve actually set up an Amazon wishlist since it has begun to dawn on my small brain that starting from zero is going to be VERY expensive.
The Amazon Wish List, called “After the Paradise Fire” and its location is RIGHT HERE
In clear my Amazon Wishlist is
There’s “Imagine no possessions…” and then there’s this morning’s passage in my Devotional:
25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. — Matthew 16
In my devotional’s explication, I read, “…You may assume that you have a right to certain material things, yet God may ask you to release all of your possessions to Him and His purposes (Matt. 19:21).
Be that as it may, I should like to have my old Bible back. I find that I do miss it. It was on the small bookcase to the right of my desk in my writing room. It was next to my thrift store purchase of Christ’s image in its faux-wood frame.
I had my Bible for over 25 years and it had served me well indeed. I had read and underlined and tagged pages and passages. I had written small notes to myself alone in the tiny margins.
It was the Old Scofield Study Bible. It was the King James Red Letter version, which, as a writer is the only version I use.
If you have one to send me I would be most appreciative, most grateful.
But there are three things you must consider:
1 Email me first about the bible so that I don’t wind up getting more than one. If there’s more than one I’ll need to choose. I’m not persnickety but I only need one.
Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
2 It must be the King James version. I know there are other versions and translations and assemblies and I respect them all as the Word of God but, as noted above, a writer is better served by the King James version. It would be nice if it was the “Red Letter” edition where all the words of Christ are in red.
3. I don’t mind “used.”
