Bible was introduced. At this and J.coo similar services^ conducted last night throughout the nation, the new version of the Bible came into use—the first major revision of the Bible since the King James Version in 1611. The new version is printed in modern English with obsolete words updated and the style simplified. The Rev. H. O. Bolin, pastor of the First Methodist Church at Benton, Ark., called the introduction of the new Bible version an historic event, "I wonder," he said, "if the people knew in 1611 what an important event was takina,piace? We are Inclined to'look on tc as trivial." 'bo many things Citing the need for increased Bible reading as a means of brinninj about a needed revival of religion, the Hev. Mr. Bolin said "It this new Bible induces us to read it more we will have a great revival of religion. "I doubt if in any period of history a revival was so badly needed "The Bible Is the only way out of the problems that face us." He also saw the inter-church service as meeting a need for more inter-denominational cooperation. "We need to see our common heritage. We are all children of God and must pool our efforts. Those around us are organized, and it will require cooperation and sacrifice to face our problems." Calling the .new version of ihe Bible "the greatest news in 341 years," the Rev. Mr. Bolin reviewed the history of the Bible and its various translations. Five Ate. Honored During last night's service, copies ol tlie Revised Standard Version were presented (ive Blytheville residents for "outstanding religious sc.rvice" to the community Tlie Hev. Han-ey T.
