Publisher's Description

Heartwarming, real life story of Mary Jones, a young girl living in rural Wales in the late 1700s.

Mary was a popular girl who loved her parents, worked hard and was keen to learn but most of all she longed to have a bible of her own. But Mary knew that bibles were hard to come by and if she was fortunate enough to find one, it would be expensive so her dearest wish looked as if it would be an impossible dream!

But, after six years of saving hard she sets off to walk a round trip of 50 miles on her bare feet, in the hope that she will be able to buy a bible and bring it home.

Mary's dream comes true and her dedication to God and determination to get a copy of His word inspires the setting up of the 'British and Foreign Bible Society'.

An inspiring story of a young girl's commitment to God and love for His word.

Editorial Reviews

"informative and inspiring"
If you like this, you'll love this: Martin Lloyd Jones - From Wales to Westminster. Mary Jones to Martin Lloyd Jones - both loved God's word - one did all she could to read it and the other did all he could to preach it - even giving up his career as a top surgeon.

    This book has made a profound impact on my life and has been an inspiration to our entire household. I began reading it aloud to my 9 year old daughter, and I was moved to research this extraordinary tale. This is the classic account of events that led to the formation of the British and Foreign Bible Society (now Bible Society) in 1804. It paints a picture of the life and times of Mary Jones and her burning desire to read and know the Word of God. Her inspiring story has been reprinted many times, but was originally written by Mary E. Ropes in 1882. This is a humbling story that needs to be told. May there be a revival in our day to treasure the Ancient, Living Word of God.

    I read this book and I got a new appreciation of the Bible. Today we take for granted the Bible. Back then there would be 1 Bible in every town, not in every house. Mary Jones and Her Bible is a must read.
