The Wisdom of Solomon

Most of you have never had an opportunity to read the Apocrypha.  The Apocrypha can be found inside of our current 1733 Bible in between the Old & New Testaments.  I have decided to share with you the book, The Wisdom of Solomon.  This is just one of the many books that are contained within the pages of our 1715 Apocrypha.  The Wisdom of Solomon is only 15 pages in length, so it should be easy for you to read.  In addition, you should know that Solomon did not write this book.  We can thank David Moody for scanning this Apocrypha from our original 1715 Bible.  Read and enjoy.

1614 Book of Common Prayer

I own this original 1614 Book of Common Prayer.  This is oldest original book that I own.  Think about it, this book is just 3 years newer than the first original 1611 King James Bible.  I have scanned the title page of this book so that you could notice the difference between this 1614 title page and the title page from our original 1734 Book of Common Prayer.  This is our original that we have replicated for years. Notice the originally 1614 was printed in two colors; red & black.  I have also cleaned up that original scan and turned it black & white.  One thing that first steps out in the 1611 version is the red & black ink.  I have no plans to scan and replicate any more of our 1614 Book of Common Prayer because is it out of the period of history that we reenact.  It is interesting to take along with me when I demonstrate and show it to others at events.  What other differences do you see in the style, type, etc. that changed over the one hundred plus years between these two Book of Common Prayer books?
