Appointed to be read

There has never been such a choice of what to read and indeed how to read it. Either by means of the printed page or electronically, everybody wants our attention and usually our money. There is only one place where we can read about the unbreakable promises of God, and that is in the Bible. There is a special reason why English readers should seize the opportunity to read through the Bible in 2011.

Appointed to be read in the Churches is what was written in 1611 in a book that shook the world.
Barker’s printing house in Aldersgate Street, London, brought a major work on the market which opened a total new world for many people. Nobody could trick them in things which were not really written in that volumes work.
400 years ago in England the landmark was set for the Holy Bible containing the Old and New Testaments to be read over the many years by so many people of different tongues. Translated out of the original tongues: and with the former translations diligently compared and revised by His Majesty’s special command – Appointed to be read in the Churches it became a major working tool for many Bible students.

presents a year long a series tracing the the process of Bible translation through the ages, so you can see how the King James Version came about, and why it is important that you read the Bible for yourself. By the exposition readers can see the way in which God has worked through the centuries to preserve the gospel  message. It looks at the many translations in the light of time. Free and authoritative Latin translations, Anglo-Saxon versions, the inhibited free access to reading the Bible up to the liberation of the Word of God.

Please do find : Inspiration and Early Translations; Part One: The Bible, Appointed to be Read … in the Glad Tidings of January 2011.

“Glad Tidings” is not a newspaper devoted to tracking and reporting newsworthy events.
If it was it would need to be renamed “Bad Tidings!”, for newspapers do not allow much space for good news stories.
The purpose of that Christadelphian magazine is to draw attention to God’s plan and purpose for the world, which is longestablished, as His promise to Abraham makes clear.
