My copy arrived this morning and I’ve been enjoying it some this afternoon. Aside from the Biblical text (which is fantastically translated) it includes a biography of Luther at the beginning, notes and helps at the end, maps, and Luther’s introductions to the biblical books! It came in a slip cover box which includes a family history for the book’s possessor and a nice little gift of additional cloth strip bookmarks.
I’ve snapped some photos. At 25 Euro, this is really quite the steal. And, really, what better way to commemorate the 500th Anniversary than with a Jubilee Edition Bible?
