Thanks for the update about Bud and the information about newspapers in Japan, didn't know that.
I was not.
Maybe they called jif jif, because well if you have chunks in it, it could be abrasive? haha
And, of course, the bible
You can also buy a standard KJV at any dollar store for $1, but they will have no commentary/notes.
Having purchased Bibles for myself and others, what some people don't realize is that a lot of what you're paying for is the translation used, the type of binding, the format, and the commentary.
There are different translations and different commentaries; much of what makes a Bible worth spending money on are the notes and other annotations, cross-references, etc. It's an incredibly dense and self-referential work so you need all that stuff to get the most out of it.
I recommend the NASB translation, in the Life Application Study Bible format, as I find the notes to be well-researched and thoughtful and the translation very carefully researched and literal.
