Bay Psalm Book
Psalm 100

My son Micah John found this old gem on vinyl at the library of Haverford College, where he was a student. He converted it to digital so that I could listen to it. Enjoy! The picture on the left is of John Eliot’s Bay Psalm Book, which is the first book published in America.

     John Eliot is known for the following

  • the first to publish a book in America

  • the "Apostle to the American Indian"

  • the first to publish a Bible in America, which was in the language of the native Americans living in the area

  • is written about in the Cotton Mather’s 17th-century Puritan history of America.
