Believe it or not, Ruth’s bible is up for auction on eBay.

The bible is signed “Ruth Etting Alderman” in red pencil, in the front, and photo they show is blurry, but it looks like her signature – and there are other existing instances where she used a red pencil to sign her name. The description states the bible came from her assistant, before she died, in Colorado.

The bible looks just like my Grandma’s bible – also the King James version. Very much a 1970′s version!

Update on 1/18/2008 – it sold for $81.00 to someone with a username of biblicalarchives. Sounds like a good home for it!
