HOW ABOUT SOME NUMBERS TO BLOW YOUR MIND? The Bible and Harry Potter.

Between 60 to 100 million Bibles are printed each year. No other book comes close. Presently, there are over 6 billion bibles in the world.  

(From THE FAITH by Chuck Colson)


 

 Just thinking about those incredible numbers started me thinking.  So I pulled out a calculator and let me blow your mind a little bit with The Book like no other.


  Let’s give this some perspective….

To be in the top 5 on Amazon’s  Best seller list, you have to sell about 300 books a day….which gets you to about 100K by the end of the year.  

 

Let’s make it even crazier

 

So let’s take the in between number of the Bible projections per year of 80 million copies…..that means if you divide 80 million by 365 days you end up with 219,178 a day.  Did that sink in….219,178 Bibles are printed and sold (or given away) EVERY DAY.  And the number are not letting up but increasing every year.

I don’t like them. I want the whole book.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not saying they are “demonic” or “ichabod”. I think they are distracting.

Why?

The Bible is ONE story, ONE message, about ONE Man and His ONE mission.

I don’t think God gave us the OT & NT to separate them.

When I buy a book I want the whole book, not the ending only.

The ending does not make sense if I don’t allow the Author to expand the details “in the beginning”. When I know those details then the big picture makes sense; and the end becomes more amazing. I now see the journey from the amazing beginning to the incredible end.

Buy the whole book.

Just my musings.
