In my previous article, I indicated the General view of the Bible otherwise known here as the Big Book of Wisdom. You can view the material here.
In this particular write-up, I am going to state how or where the Bible can be acquired or purchased as well as the different types, their features and the different translations.
How or where can we obtain it?
The Big Book of Wisdom can be obtained through different ways. Some can be gotten freely whereas most are purchased through dealers.
Previously Christian Books were sold by special body like the CSS Bookshop which was established in 1869 as Christian Missionary Society (CMS). This body has continued to evolved with the emerging technologies and have added online services to its stores.
Others bodies abroad or individuals have also carried out these services among whom is the Popular Amazon Online Shop
(See my write-up on Amazon.com).
Bibles you can purchase here or any other On/Offline Stores and their uses are:
I am basing my purchase on Online because technology is the language of the day except nearness to the point of sale enables one to visit, these days even sales and supply of food is becoming rampant on the internet and early birds are cashing out on it.
Various types of these Big Book of Wisdom exist and I shall be highlighting them. Keep up with me to the end.
Now there is something we have to take note of. That no matter our different denominations in the world; or the different types of Bibles, no one can add, embellish or subtract to and from the life giving words of God or Christ as indicated in Revelation 22:18-19 which says “For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, if any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book. And If any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book”
So no matter the various types, the word of God cannot be altered. The various sizes and formats are based on their different usage and for specific purposes and people hence the differences in types.
- Audio Bibles: This type enables you to listen to the word of God on Cassette, CDs, DVDs, or on MP3 format
