The publication of the first complete English Bible is certainly an event which we, together with all English-speaking Christians in the world, ought to commemorate with heartfelt rejoicing, renewed dedication to the study of the Bible, and greater consecration to the spread of the Bible in all lands. On the occasion of the quadricentennial of the publication of the first complete German Bible in 1934, Lutherans, commemorating Luther's complete German Bible of 1534, raised a veritable tempest of jubilant excitement throughout the world; and therefore the first appearance of the complete English Bible in the book-markets of the world should certainly not be a "forgotten event."
