Every lover of scripture takes a Bible for himself within our larger one. He may read the 60 books from a sense of duty or profit, but there are portions that he loves, which he reads time and again. Those are the Bible within the Bible that he has made for himself. Any Bible used long and effectively by one person has this story to tell. Torn edges, pencillngs, thumbmarks plentiful here, and large sections of clean pages there show what the owner may never have dreamed, that he has his personal edition of our common Bible. This is inevitable. And it is our highest tribute to the book of books.
