Bible that landed on the moon up for auction

by Tola Mbakwe

The Bible travelled to the moon on the Apollo 14 mission with astronauts Alan Shepard, Stuart Roosa and Edgar Mitchell.

The King James Bible is just 1.625 square inches and was given to the mission by the Apollo Prayer League.

Nate D. Sanders Auctions, which is selling the Bible, said in a statement: "The Apollo Prayer League's mission was to both pray for the safety of astronauts and help with humanitarian causes around the world."

Another miniature King James Bible that went to space on the Apollo 13 mission was sold at auction for £47,500 last year.

A Monthly Gift Of $11 Makes A World Of Difference

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
