Mary Jones was a poor little Welsh girl of the nineteenth century who desperately wanted her own Bible. It took her six years, but she managed to save enough money to buy one. Barefooted, she walked over the Welsh mountains for many miles in her search for the Word of God. She ended up at the home of the Reverend Thomas Charles, who was greatly moved by her courage and perseverance. Mary Jones was influential in God gathering a small group of believers that included a school master, a preacher, and several others. This group was greatly inspired by Mary's devotion to the Bible, and this led them to propose to the Council of the Religious Tract Society that they form a Bible society that would provide Bibles for the people of Wales. As a result, the British and Foreign Bible Society was established in London. This moving story shows what one young girl can do to bring about profound changes in society. This is a Victorian classic for children that has stood the test of time and continues to bring delight and spiritual excitement to children. This is an ideal book for home schools, Christian schools, and Christian families everywhere. Mary Jones and Her Bible is one of the top 100 religious books for children. The story has been retold in forty different languages. The Preface to the Original Edition states, ''This little book tells how one of the least of seeds has grown to be the greatest of trees.''
