Before they sold Thompson Bibles in the bookstores, they were sold door-to-door. About a year after God saved me, I was one of their salesmen. I was required to buy, at wholesale prices, a kit which included the various types of Bibles. (hardcover, leather, indexed) But, ended up giving away the Bibles to people who couldn't afford to buy one.
Hahaha ... you weren't a great sales man were you? Bless your soul for giving those Bibles for free! :o)
