I really do love my Baronius Press Knox Bible, mostly due to the wonderful page layout, the nice binding and cover, and the overall enjoyment I get from reading it . Yeah, I really just enjoying sitting down in my favorite chair and simply reading from the Knox Bible. Sure, there are an occasional word or two that show up in the translation that cause me to appeal to a dictionary, but overall it is a smooth read. (And while I have mentioned on this blog on numerous occasions my dislike for the "thees" and "thous", for some reason it doesn't bother as much when reading the Knox Bible.)
So, this leads me to the post at hand. I own a 1965 Burns & Oates leather bound Knox Bible. It has a page layout that is very similar to the Baronius Press edition, while also containing 4 drawn Bible maps and a list of the Mass readings for Sundays and Holy Days according to the Extraordinary Form. I have no need of this edition anymore, and to be honest the Lord has been encouraging me to pass along some (if not most) of my Bibles to those who could really use them.
Here is the catch, the binding is in pretty bad condition. In particular, the spine has fallen off, although it still opens fine and the pages are in no danger, at the moment, of falling out. I am sure that this would be a perfect candidate for an expert rebinding. In addition, it is also a bit thinner than the Baronius Press edition.
So, I want to give this Bible to someone who would truly treasure it. Yet, I do not know how to do this! I don't really want to do one of my typical "contests" so, if you are interested and truly desire this Bible, just send me an email: mccorm45 (at) yahoo (dot) com. All I ask is that you explain why you would really like this Knox Bible edition. I will email the person I decide to give it to. There will be no post about who gets it.
Also, I thought this would be a good time to provide some links to some of my favorite Knox Bible-related posts. So, enjoy them!
