Sell Yourself...Just Cash in!
In the end, this story proves to me that people sell themselves out when the going gets rough. Sad, sad, indeed.
I was first exposed to the Good News Bible was about 11 years ago. At the time, I was not a believer. I was simply a young guy living life. I had Bibles (four Authorised Version, one NIV, one Living Bible). To me, the Bible was just one more interesting book on the shelf to read. That was until a family trip I took in late 1993. During the trip, I stayed at a family members house. At that house they had a box of Good News Bibles. They gave me one to read during my stay. Reading the GNB made me realize that the Bible was a special book and not just one more book on the shelf. Because of the GNB, I started to read the Bible more. A year later, I became a Christian. A few months after my salvation, I got a copy of the GNB. To this day, I value it and cherish the GNB.
