BALDWIN CITY, Kan. (AP) A King James Bible from a collection at Baker University is featured on the cover of December’s National Geographic.
The university said in a news release Wednesday that the Bible is from the university’s William A. Quayle Bible Collection. The magazine’s cover story commemorates the 400th anniversary of the King James version of the Bible.
Baker said in a news release that the university’s Quayle Bible Collection includes several examples of the King James Bible, including two copies of the first edition from 1611.
The collection began with a 1925 gift from the estate of Bishop William A. Quayle, a former Baker president.
The university will have an open house from 1 to 3 p.m. Dec. 4 to showcase the Bible featured in the magazine.
