"With two days left, Greene's goal of raising $37,000 to print a Bible "designed and crafted for reading, separated into four elegant volumes, and free of all numbers and notes" has been met several times over."

Interesting...

 

I am for whatever will get people into the Word.

 

But, oh boy, he will have a lot of spare change. Wonder if he would consider making a donation to the "cause" of me completing my Accordance library? :)

Could this be a sign of the resurgence of the ASV? I can think of one Accordance user who would love that. :)

To each there own I suppose... the only way I personally particularly like ASV is World English Bible. Which is significantly updated and I am not sure acceptable to true ASV fans.

I think it is more a sign of what people are really looking for in a print Bible - one that is easy to read without a lot of distractions. It uses book paper not the tissue paper found in most print Bibles.The Bible was made to be read: all of it.

 

This version of the ASV has been "lightly edited" - removal of thee and thou, etc. mostly.

 

The complete article from the Bibliotheca website clarifies the goal of the project. He isn't spending $37,000 on one Bible but is producing print Bibles for interested parties who prepay at different levels of participation. A complete version of the OT & NT is $75. That seems a very reasonable amount to pay for a Bible that is designed with the reader in mind.

 

As you might guess I still use print Bibles quite a bit. The physical form of the book still has great value to me. But I have not jumped on board with the Biblitheca project as of this time.

Hmmm..., I wonder what he'd charge for an "incomplete OT & NT," one with all the "thou shalt not" passages removed that address my "favorite" sins? ;)

English RV please Rick! Better marginal choices IMHO! (for the most part anyway)

I'm going to play the pessimist and say it's the ASV because it's royalty free and not the RV because, well Ken, let's just be honest, many people over here would really rather have the MSV, the 'Murican Standard Version. (If that reference doesn't translate internationally) ;)
