    purchase a bible

    Can you recommend a site to purchase a German Martin Luther bible that would be used in an Amish home. Or a typically used Bible in an Amish home.

    Thank you for your assistance with this matter.

    Which Bible do the Amish use? (January 19th, 2012 at 15:47)

    You can get a Luther Bible through Amazon.com or go ask your local Christian bookstore if they can order it for you. Quite a few pop up in our database at the bookstore where I work.

    Crossway Publishers has a bilingual Luther/English Standard so you can see the German and English side by side–this is also found on Amazon (or possibly your local Christian bookstore).

    And Lehman’s (lehmans.com) sells a bilingual New Testament English/Pennsylvania Dutch

      Free biblingual KJV and Martin Luther Bible (June 24th, 2014 at 01:02)

      Free biblingual KJV and Martin Luther Bible

      My website at luther.woodwardworks.com contains a bilingual bible where each verse is displayed once in KJV english and then again in German (from the 1912 version of Martin Luther’s translation of the Bible).

      Each book of the Bible can be read online or downloaded as an EPUB or a PDF. There is no charge for this. The EPUB version is not protected by DRM (Digital Rights Management), so it can be converted to other formats easily with appropriate software (such as the free download of the ‘calibre’ program.

      For those who want to avoid converting of the EPUB books there is also provided a link to Amazon’s website for many (but not all) of the books. A small fee is charged by Amazon, however, if you download from their website.

      Thanks Carolyn, it’s done in the same way stories or songs in other cultures are passed on–they are simply heard and practiced and used in church, so they stay alive from one generation to the next.

      John thanks for your question, I think you are referring to mission work and evangelization? These two posts might provide some answers:

    Die Luther Bibel (November 11th, 2013 at 11:07)

    Die Luther Bibel

    Ich finde es ganz interessant, dass Ihre Gruppe von Christen die Bibel von Martin Luther benutzen. Ich habe eine Kopie davon, und ich lese sie oft. Ich habe ebenfalls eine Kopie der King James Bible, und die englische Sprache von 1611 ist eigentlich verwendet. Schoen nicht? Ich war Austauschschueler in der Bundesrepublik Duetschland im Jahre 1974. Ich muss sagen, das ich das genossen habe. Ich war dann jung und gluecklich. Jetzt werde ich ein alter Mann. Meine Familie ist jetzt beim Herrn Jesus, und ich vermisse sie so sehr. Ich habe eine Frau namens Nancy und einen Schwager, der in Stanly County in Nordkarolina lebt. Wir haben keine Kinder, deshalb kann das Leben ganz einsam sein. Der Herr Jesus segne Sie alle und Ihre Kirchen. Bringen Sie das Wort Gottes der ganzen Welt.

    Mit herzlichen Groessen,

    Karl Eduard Mueller, Jr. und Nancy Webb Mueller

      Mit herzlichen Gruessen,

      Karl und Nancy. Ich habe Gruessen falsch buchstabiert. Jedermann irrt sich, nicht?
