Mary Jones lived in Wales over 200 years ago. She worked hard, she loved her parents and was a happy girl. She was only missing one thing-a Bible of her own. She walked fifty miles on her bare feet, just to get a Bible, and she was changed forever.

Review 1 for Mary Jones and her Bible
Date:January 11, 2013
This book has made a profound impact on my life and has been an inspiration to our entire household. I began reading it aloud to my 9 year old daughter, and I was moved to research this extraordinary tale. This is the classic account of events that led to the formation of the British and Foreign Bible Society (now Bible Society) in 1804. It paints a picture of the life and times of Mary Jones and her burning desire to read and know the Word of God. Her inspiring story has been reprinted many times, but was originally written by Mary E. Ropes in 1882. This is a humbling story that needs to be told. May there be a revival in our day to treasure the Ancient, Living Word of God.

I read this book and I got a new appreciation of the Bible. Today we take for granted the Bible. Back then there would be 1 Bible in every town, not in every house. Mary Jones and Her Bible is a must read.
