That is almost word for word what this bookstore owner friend told me. I guess I
was just a little slow getting the news.

I have both the pre-1980 and post-1980 versions of the Bible. The newer one is
large print, which I can use for teaching. But I keep the older one because it
was a particularly nicely bound type that they don't seem to make anymore (real
calfskin) and it was a gift from my mother as I was headed off down the road
south to Salt Lake and Provo. It's got a lot of scripture marking in it, and I
tend to remember things visually, so I'll often prefer the older one for that
reason. Just call me a sentimental old fogey.
