Send Us Your Stories About the Good News Bible

Have you read the Good News Bible or Good News for Modern Man?  As many of you know, I am writing a history of the American Bible Society and hope to devote a chapter to a cultural history of this Bible.  Do you have a story to tell about the Bible?  Do you remember when it was published (either the Good News for Modern Man New Testament [1966] or the Good News Bible [1976])? If you have stories, remembrances, pictures, etc... please send them along.  I or one of my assistants may want to interview you for the book.

Since I first announced this yesterday the stories and pics have been rolling in, but we could use a lot more.  For example, here are some pics sent to me today by Caryn Riswold, an author, theologian, blogger, and religious professor at Illinois College.

Thanks, Caryn!
