The Blank Bible

johnathanedwards.jpgWould you want a blank bible?  Well, if you knew what it was I am certain that you would. 

The “Blank Bible” is the personal bible of Jonathan Edwards.  This bible is a leather-bound copy of the KJV with blank pages woven into it.  Over the course of three decades Edwards wrote over five thousand notes and entries on the biblical texts.  I guess you could say that this was the colonial version of a blog. 

What makes this very interesting is that the JE Center at Yale is publishing this work, and it will be available as early as Sept. 4th (just in time for Christmas shopping).  This work will definitely go on my wish list.
