History, legacy of the English Bible coming to Christian City Thursday

This Thursday, Christian City will host “The History and Legacy of the English Bible.” Collector Michael Morgan will speak on the “first generation” of the English Bible from Wycliffe through the King James Version. This free event is open to the public and sponsored by Christian City’s Life Enrichment Department and the Christian City Men’s Club.

Morgan will speak in the Sparks Inn Auditorium on the Christian City campus in Union City at 3 p.m., with a question and answer session to follow. Items from his collection will also be on display in the auditorium from 1 – 3 p.m.

The collection of almost 4,000 volumes includes English Bibles, Testaments, Psalters, and Liturgies. Highlights of the collection include versions of the Bible from 1380 through the mid 17th century, the Great Bible of Henry VIII, the Bible of the Geneva refugees under “Bloody Mary,” the first Catholic translation in English, and the first printing of the King James Bible of 1611.

Morgan is not only an avid collector, but also organist for Atlanta’s historic Central Presbyterian Church for the past 35 years. He also serves as organist at Columbia Theological Seminary in Decatur.

All are invited to enjoy this fascinating and educational presentation. For more information, call 770-703-2636.

We probably shouldn't announce such things in the newspaper because everyone's relationship with their deity is private at least according to Mike King. If Mr. King was in charge that program would be two hours of silence.

We shouldn't be ashamed of our faith and we should boldly proclaim it.

Stuff like this has nothing to do with a relationship - it's probably going to be chat session about peoples head knowledge of texts and history. There will be plenty of talking and note taking believe you me. Now if you want to talk about relationships, new creations and daily witness - then the beloved crickets would be heard.

What a sad truism. It's a talk that would benefit humankind.
