- …encourage Brethren to become faithful readers of the Bible, increasing their appreciation, study and application of it;
- …acquaint them with Christopher Saur, Jr., a colonial Brethren printer, and our biblical heritage;
- …create a spirit of unity and renewal as the traveling Saur Bible reminds us that we are linked with those of the past and with each other.
To support the above purpose, a DVD program has been created that offers a pictorial biography of Christopher Saur Jr., interviews with scholars, a colonial hymn, and a practical challenge for making the Bible more important in ones life. Click here for more information about the DVD program.
Recently another challenge was given by Ron Beachley, 2006 Annual Conference Moderator: for Brethren to grow in their study and use of the Bible. Consequently, it seemed appropriate that the Saur Bible should again make its visit to churches. As the Saur Bible tours this time, it is emphasizing the importance of the Scriptures, sharing about Christopher Saur, Jr. and his unique Bible, and highlighting the unity and renewal to which our biblical heritage calls us.
Even though the Saur Bible may not come to your church, on this web site you will find a wide variety of pages related to the purpose stated above. Look the side bar over. You are certain to find something of interest and challenge.
