Today in History

On August 24, 1456, the Bible was printed for the first time in Johann Gutenberg’s shop in Mainz, Germany. Where this date came from no one knows. Most scholars agree that it was completed in 1455 and it took several years to produce. 180 copies of the book were created and the University of Texas has one of five that are in the United States. Regardless of when the book was actually created it should be celebrated. How about today!
