FINDING COMFORT IN DIFFICULT TIMES: A SELECTION OF SOLDIERS’ BIBLES
Efforts to supply Scriptures to American troops date from the last few years of the American Revolutionary War (1775-1783), when plans were made to give a copy of the Bible to each man enlisted in the Continental Army. Finding Comfort in Difficult Times: A Selection of Soldiers’ Bibles showcases the evolution of the pocket-sized “Soldiers’ Bibles” which were sent to American soldiers from 1860-2011. This audio presentation provides a window into the life of the soldiers who used these Bibles.
14 Bibles are discussed in this two-part series.
