Is there a proper way to dispose of a Bible? We have a Bible that's probably getting close to the end of it's life, and I'm not sure what to do with it. It seems wrong to throw it away since it is the Word of God, but on the other hand, it's a combination of paper, ink, and a little cardboard, so it seems idolatrous (in the sense of worshipping a book) to worry about throwing it away. On the other hand again, it seems that you would dispose of something you greatly value in way that shows that you value this thing. Obviously, I'm a little confused. What are your thoughts?
