The "Slave Bible"

We recently experienced the exhibit on the "Slave Bible" right over the Potomac in Washington DC.

These "Bibles," which were specially produced for slave populations, cut away huge sections of Scripture, particularly those emphasizing freedom and liberation. Instead, passages emphasizing submission were give pride of place. There are not many of these Bibles still extant, but this one that was printed in London in 1809 for use by slaves in the British West India Islands is currently on loan to the DC Bible Museum.
