English Translation

In the year of 1935, the sales numbers of Trinity Publishing in the whole country: Complete Bible: 83,389; New Testament: 80,609; Single books of the Bible: 9,120,543. Assuming that each volume of the Old and New Testament is one inch, five New Testaments are four inches, one hundred gospel books and other books are one foot, then if they are stacked up together the height would be 106,192 feet, which is more than four times the height of the world’s highest mountain (24,509 feet); the Himalayas is 24,509 feet high and Taishan is 4,300 feet high. Red measure on the right: 4,300 Height of Taishan. 24,509 Height of Himalayas. 106,192 Bible sales in 1935
