The Printing Press and the Bible

Even though you are reading this from a screen, we are all very familiar with printed books. In fact, we are so familiar that we often take them for granted. There was a time when books were reproduced by hand writing. This was a very tedious and long process. That all changed with the invention of the printing press.

Today (February 3), in 1468, Johannes Gutenberg died. He was the inventor of the printing press. The very first book he printed was the Bible. How great is that! On this day, I am thankful for how God used Johannes Gutenberg to continue to fulfill His promise to preserve His Word to all generations.

Psalm 12:7 “Thou shalt keep them, O LORD, Thou shalt preserve them from this generation for ever.”
