Our New Bibles
Hereafter, to distinguish our own special
edition, from other Bibles, we will refer to them as Berean Bibles. They are
becoming more and more indispensable to all readers as they learn how to use
them. The translation, of course, is not at all different from that of other
Bibles of the Common Version. Our peculiar, distinctive feature is the Berean
Helps at the back. These consist of:
(1) Biblical Comments from Genesis to Revelation, with references to the SCRIPTURE
STUDIES and other of our publications showing the page where the text is more
fully discussed and elaborated. We can scarcely imagine anything more helpful
than these for Bible study. It is so easy to turn to the reference and
ascertain if the matter has been treated and where and how. It represents four
hundred and eighty-one pages of matter.
(2) The Instructor's Guide. This is a topical arrangement of Bible subjects
specially convenient for those who have opportunity for teaching others the
Divine Plan of the Ages. Its various topics are arranged under distinct
headings and the various texts bearing upon the subject are collated. With this
help a novice has at his command, well-furnished, "the Sword of the
Spirit." It is in condensed form, very convenient, and consists of
eighteen pages solid matter.
(3) The Berean Topical Index, alphabetically arranged, presents a large variety of
subjects showing references to the SCRIPTURE STUDIES and other of our
publications treating the same. This feature is comprised in twenty-eight
(4) In this specially difficult texts are brought to the attention and references
given showing where they are treated in our publications. Following this is a
full list of various interpolations and spurious passages of the Scriptures not
in the original MSS., as proven by the oldest Greek MSS.-- fifteen pages.
These four features, representing five hundred
and forty-two pages, are not to be found in any other Bibles on earth and, in
our opinion, they are of almost priceless value. One of our interested readers
who could not procure another would not sell his copy for a hundred
dollars--many of them, surely, would not take thousands for it.
All of our Berean Bibles contain the above, and
some of them, the numbers of which end with a nine, contain additionally
Bagster's Bible Study Helps, including an alphabetical index of proper names
and Bagster's Bible Concordance and Maps--a total of one hundred and eighty-six
We not only supply these Bibles at cost price,
but, because of the large quantities ordered at a time, we are enabled to
secure a cost price which is really phenomenal. We are safe in saying that,
even aside from our Berean Helps, no Bibles are to be found in the world of
such extraordinary values. The price is the same whether the order be for one
copy or for more. To save danger of misunderstanding we below quote the prices,
including postage. The very low prices must not lead you to think that
these are manufactured in any slipshod manner. They are first class in every
particular. The prices are, many of them, less than one-half what you pay for
such books almost anywhere else.
So great is the demand for these Berean Bibles
that hereafter we purpose carrying no others in stock except pocket Bibles and
large type Bibles for the aged. We will still, however, be pleased to serve
anyone who desires other Bibles. We can procure for these wholesale rates,
usually twenty-five per cent. off publishers' catalogue prices, plus postage.
