The bible is very expensive. Kierkegaard wrote that if you put you finger in it it will take your hand, and if you put your hand in it it will take your arm. One could easily recommend to another to stay away from it and spend your money on detective novels.

Well, I have been posting a few things on other threads, and if you are still interested, and I can't imagine that you still are after such a long time has past, it would seem, as I have come to learn, that one can be a christian without the bible at all. So don't waste a dime and have one of these no bible christians bring you into all the founts of non-biblical christian thought. Course, I don't suppose they have much thought. But I suppose one could set around with dreamy eyes and cry and feel tingly all inside about all the love. Talk about love, experience love-man that can be had for free! Maybe even become a mystic and have direct revelation-pot does it for Indians (I think that is expensive too; but I don't know, again, I don't have any experience with that). Then I have found that there are christians who only need part of the bible. So maybe you could find a condensed version. Maybe the Oprah book club has one if the Reader's Digest dumped theirs-perhaps a garage sale, but then one would need a car and gas. Might be cheaper to by a whole used one and read it through and just black out all the stuff you don't like or that just doesn't fit with your common sense view of the world. Maybe your significant other could help at getting rid of the false passages. Dice might work. Stay away from theology though. The vibes I am getting is that god hates that and prefers stupidity. Or regular christianity. Good predestination.....errrrrr, I mean good luck.

I say hold on to it for dear life! There's soon coming a day where that $3.00 dollars, $10.00 dollars, be it $50.00 or free BOOK, is going to be worth far more than silver, or gold! (PS: I'm not talking monetary value either)...........

She is trying to get me inducted into her church thing, and tells me that we can't get engaged unless I do, and bla bla bla. However, did she really just get me nothing for Christmas? Please tell me they are selling them for atleast over 50 dollars?
A Bible can be very expensive depending on the features. I mean is it a study Bible, a Bible that includes a commentary, dictionary or concordance. Is it Hebrew or Greek. What size is it? Is it leather or engraved. I could go on, but hopefully u see my point. The most expensive Bible I have is about $150.00. However, I think u can get a nice very nice Bible for about $70.00. Now about her religion- I would not join her faith if I did not personally believe as she did. Maybe u want to think long and hard about being with this woman.. Good luck

hehe! I doubt that she meant to offend...you should talk to her about it - and try to understand why she got you a Bible. If you enjoyed her company up to this point, it may be worth the investment to figure out the reason for the bible as a gift. I don't know of a Bible costing $50, but I have seen very nice ones for as much as $40 - leatherbound with very nice parchment.

It depends on what type of Bible you get, where you get it, and perhaps when you get it. (You might get it on a clearance day at some stores.) Many Churches will give you a free Bible. A lot of the times though, it is only the New Testament.
