    Default The Gideons

    Did the Gideons ever visit your school and hand out Bibles to kids?

    The Gideons have scaled back their operations in schools in recent years because a high proportion of their bibles end up burnt, used as toilet paper, or turned into roll-ups before the school day has ended. When I was handed my Bible I replied "do you give away electron microscopes" because the print in them is so tiny.

    I've still got mine but hardly ever use it.

    One of my friends who is a regular church goer reckoned it wasn't as good as the King James version.

    Who cared about rules when you were young?

    Yes, in my first year at secondary school; they distributed small red bibles in our R.E. lessons. That would have been September or October 1991.

    Mine is red, but they did show us some other colours at school for prisons, hospitals etc.

    The ones in hotel rooms always seem to be brown leather.
