    Throughout the world's history there have been great revivals. I wonder if the preachers of those times used the same Bible? Any one have information as to who the preachers might have been and the Bible they used?

    For example: John Bunyan-Geneva

    1725, the Great Awakening, revival in New England and
    spread thru the 13 colonies. I don't know which
    Bible they used, but i know for a fact that
    they did NOT use the KJV1769 like
    the majority does today.
    In fact, the movement died about the
    time the KJV1769 came out [​IMG]

    1912 - first attempt by a mission body to reach systematically
    every home in an entire nation. The Oriental Missionary Society
    reached over 10 million homes in Japan, 1912-1917.

    Bible? Don't know. But i know it wasn't the KJV1769.
    Very few Japaneese understood English in 1912.

    Ed that was very interesting about the great awakening.

    Surely through history there have been great revivals. What about Billy Sunday? Doesn't anyone else have some imput? This is your chance to show your Bible in action.

    The Russian Orthodox had great revival,
    the best epoch began in 1826. The revival
    spread across China, Kamchatka, Alaska, Mongolia, Japan,
    Korea, by means of traders, merchants, colonists, soldiers,
    diplomats, exiles, settlers, monks, bishops,
    missionaries, etc. This revial realy ended only
    by the 1917 revolution and the martyrdom of some 8 Million
    Russian Orthodox.

    The Russians had no need of an English Bible to
    spread their mission effort across half the world.
