Frequently Asked Questions

What is Every Home for Christ International/Canada (EHC)?
EHC is a global, home-by-home evangelism ministry. We partner with people to reach people with the Gospel right where they live, throughout the world. To learn more about us read About EHC.

How did EHC acquire these rare Bible leaves? 
A long-time advisor to our ministry has been an avid collector of rare Bibles for many years. Some time ago he acquired several fragments from a first-edition printing of the King James Bible. He had a conservator separate the fragments into individual leaves and then made those leaves available to us at EHC.

Where did the leaves come from originally? 
The fragments containing these leaves were originally discovered in an old English church. It is unknown how long they had been there, but possibly hundreds of years.

How were these leaves originally produced?
Printing in the early 17th century was still a primitive process, which utilized hand-set metal type, and Gutenberg-style presses. Pages were produced in small sets (called signatures), then folded, collated, trimmed and stitched into larger sets, until an entire Bible was ready to be bound. It was a long, laborious process.

Did anyone verify the authenticity of these pages?
Bibliographical experts and renowned rare book specialists have examined these leaves and determined their condition, value and veracity. Each one carries a Certificate of Authenticity signed by experts in the field of antiquarian books.

Why are these artifacts significant to the ministry of EHC?
We believe that the Bible is God’s Word and is our sourcebook for life. It is the Written Word of God that tells us of the Living Word of God, Jesus Christ. It is not merely a book about God, it is God’s Book; and through its message we learn the truths of life and hope and salvation in Christ. In EHC’s worldwide ministry we spread the word that comes from The Word. We have shared that message person-by-person, home-by-home to over 1.4 billion homes. And in our tens of thousands of Christ Groups in scores of nations, the Bible is the textbook.

What is the value of having one of these Bible leaves on the wall in your home? 
One of these rare Bible leaves makes a statement about the value that you give to Scripture—that you esteem it and treasure it. And, frankly, these leaves are so intriguing that they start conversations. These have actually proven to generate excellent witnessing opportunities.

Who would appreciate one of these Bible leaves as a gift? 
Anyone who cherishes God’s Word would treasure one of these pages. They are wonderful gifts for a pastor, or for a person who has been a spiritual influence in your life, or for children or grandchildren. And, of course, anyone who loves both the Bible and literary history would love one of these rare pages.

Do ancient Bible leaves like these require any special care?
The only precaution one must take is to keep the page out of direct sunlight. Ensuring this, it can be displayed prominently without fear of damage or excessive deterioration. Each leaf is expertly framed in museum conservation glass that provides ultraviolet protection for the framed leaf.

What makes these Bible pages so special?
The fascination of these pages lies not only in their rarity, but also in their unique character. Variances in the grain of the paper, remnants of binding thread, and royal crest watermarks are found in many of the leaves. Some pages contain annotations handwritten centuries ago; and a few are scarred by tiny burns, which occurred when the original owners read the Bible by candlelight. Virtually all of these amazing pages show the intriguing differences between 17th-century English and the language we speak today. Each one is distinct, and all are remarkable.

Why are these pages so well preserved?
Unlike most books published today, the paper in these first edition King James Bibles is cotton-based and acid-free; so it does not degenerate rapidly or become brittle with age. These particular pages have endured diverse conditions, but they have never been exposed to excessive sunlight.

Early translations of the Bible

Why is the King James translation of the Bible so important?
Within a generation or two after it was first issued in 1611, the King James Bible became the most enduring, influential English translation in world history. It is the version that has made the greatest impact upon the English language and has shaped modern systems of education, government, law and many other disciplines.

What were the major English Bibles before the King James Version?
In 1380, the Bible was first translated into English by a team of scholars led by John Wycliffe. That work, which was reproduced on hand-scribed manuscripts, stood alone until 1525 when William Tyndale issued the first printed version of the English Bible.

Over the next eight decades, five major English translations were published. Those editions — the Coverdale Bible, the Great Bible, the Geneva Bible, the Bishops’ Bible and the Rheims-Douai Bible — were the worthy predecessors to the Authorized King James Bible, translated under the auspices of King James I of England.
