In my life I have come into the possession of eight bibles, in succession, in different stages of my life. Some have been used more than others; all have been treated with respect as you’d treat a good knife: take care of it, but use it; that’s what it’s for.
In my early life I had the opportunity to hear very many very fine teachers preach, and many of then I asked to inscribe my bible. That is the focus for most of these recollections.
These next 20 entries look at these eight bibles and who I heard at these various times, As they were written, I though repeatedly of Harry, and how much I would liked to talk to him about all this.
