World War II Troops Bible

We are celebrating the United States of America for the entire month of June 2020 ... leading up to, and including, the Declaration of Independence on July 4th.

Today's selection is a Bible given to U.S. Troops during World War II, along with a printed letter from then- President Franklin D. Roosevelt.

The description describes it as "The World's Smallest Bible": containing over 200 pages of the New Testament and the Lord's Prayer. Every word can be read with good eyesight or a magnifying glass.

Stay tuned for more selections from the Wonders of the Bible collection. These items are all part of my BibleAmerica250 program and exhibition. These events will take us up to the Semiquincentennial (250 years) celebration of the founding of the United States of America 1776-2026.

My first program and exhibit is slated for November 3, 2020, in Lancaster, Pennsylvania (providing there are no Covid-19 restrictions, of course).
