Small Bibles with Big Impacts
January 5, 2023
The Styberg Library invites everyone to view the newest Bible display of three small-sized Bibles from The Yi Family Bible Collection Room. Come view “The World’s Smallest Bible” and a keychain Bible published by the Philippine Bible Society. Of special interest is the Civil War Soldier’s Bible with leather slip case. This pocket-sized New Testament & Psalms published by the American Bible Society in 1851 was carried by Solomon Andrew Shiffer while he served as a Civil War Union soldier. These Bibles were easy for soldiers to carry while traveling and provided them with spiritual comfort during their wartime experience. For these and other reasons, small Bibles made a big impact on those who carried them.
