Rare Bibles Found In Ashland Kansas

KSCB News - June 17, 2013 8:07 am

A small rural Kansas church is celebrating what some might consider a gift from God.

A minister of the Presbyterian Church in Ashland says she was sorting through some boxes at the church when she found one filled with some unusual Bibles.

The 15 Bibles found by Minister Marsha Granberry were printed in several languages including Eskimo, Slavic, Cherokee, Russian, Chinese and Yiddish.

Most of the Bibles were printed in the 1920s and 1930s, except the Cherokee version, which apparently was printed in 1860.

Granberry says the Bibles are in pristine condition, with no watermarks, tears or underlining.

The monetary value of the Bibles hasn’t been determined but the small congregation is considering putting them up for auction to pay for a badly-needed church bathroom.
