This Day in History...

According to NPR this morning, today in 1535 the Coverdale Bible was published by Myles Coverdale, an English presbyter/priest. It was the first complete Bible to be published in modern English. Coverdale went on to become bishop of Exeter. So as we continue to celebrate the 400th anniversary of the exquisite King James Version (1611) of the Bible this year, we also today celebrate the 476th anniversary of the Coverdale Bible.
