    I have an old EDC Gideon testament to be replaced. But I have never known how to retire a Bible.

    It is the words in it not the physical materiel that is sacred . I have an old new testament that is now duct tape bound and falling apart I will burn ( respectfully) when I come across it again in my keep boxes . If it is usable I would donate it to someplace that would get it into he hands some it may bless
    That is on my list of candidates
    thanks
    Actually what I will do is ,once I decide what I want I will put it om my Christmas list for my wife

    I always assumed places like "thrift" shops would throw away worn out Bibles. Donation is the way. Also I keep picking up Gideon New Testaments in various military camo patterns. And if any of these are still provided to our military members I would be surprised at that given our church vs state separation.

    I would have recommended the American Bible Society for anyone visiting New York. Unfortunately, after many years, their physical location in Manhattan closed down in mid 2015. I believe their website is still up, but not sure if they offer a very compact New Testament Bible.

    I went with the ESV new testament. I have been edc'ing it for 2 weeks now , it is a good balance between big enough to read and small enough to carry. I actually put another N.T. in my edc bag to have a bible to give someone if they need/want a bible . When I carried a inexpensive N.T. I just gave them the one I had, now that I have a nice one I have an extra to give. Saying you don't have a bible to read doesn't work around me:D

    I picked up a vest pocket ESV New Testament with Psalms and Proverbs with leather cover at Family Christian Store for $4.99. It's very small and carryable.

    My wife and have decided that if we ever have throw out a Bible (because it's fallen apart) we replace it with one to give away or with a donation to the Bible society or similar.

    I am Jewish; I attend a Hasidic synagogue - Chabad.

    Electronically I edc the following:

    > Prayer book with all prayers for the year in both English and Hebrew
    > Tehillim (in English you would call it Psalms); this is also in both English and Hebrew
    > I subscribe to a weekly publication that gives the weekly Torah chapter in English and Hebrew including commentary; also gives a weekly portion of Mishna ( what was once termed the 'oral law')

    Additionally I have a physical sort of pocket size copy of Tehillim (psalms) in both Hebrew and English in my bag.

    I took a little time and scanned through this thread. I noted with interest several people asked how to 'retire' a worn out Bible.

    In Jewish tradition, one of two methods would be used. One method for sacred texts is to bury them. A second method used for centuries has been to store these texts in a dedicated room usually at a synagogue or at a cemetery. The storage room was known as a 'geniza'; a very famous one, centuries old is the Cairo Genizah, known to have approximately 300,000 documents. It was built in the year 882; sort of 'forgotten' and rediscovered in the year 1896. It has become a very important source for researchers.

    L'chaim!

    Not a huge fan of the NCV version, but the size is perfect. And it's made of duct tape, so it's pretty indestructible.
