Kickstarter’s Million-Dollar Bible Is Finally Finished

Christianity Today covered the success of the Bibliotheca fundraiser during the summer of 2014, and now that delivery is expected in December, CT’s Kate Shellnut revisited the project. I spoke with her for the article, as did Bibliotheca’s Adam Lewis Greene, Crossway’s Dane Ortlund, and Glenn Paauw. She also quotes James K. A. Smith and Wesley Hill. Read the article and catch up on what’s happening in the world of reader-friendly Bibles. Share it, too, so your friends get the word.

I have more posts on the ESV Reader’s Bible, Six-Volume Set in the pipeline, and of course, I’ll be writing about Bibliotheca once I get my hands on it.

An Answer to Fear: My latest piece for [relay]

Speaking of reading and sharing, I’d like to point you to my latest piece for Worldview Academy’s online journal [relay]: “An Answer to Fear.” Maybe you haven’t noticed, but there’s a lot of fearful rhetoric in the church these days, and a lot of people are desperately asking, “What are we going to do?” It won’t surprise you to know that my answer to those who worry about the future of Christianity is to start reading the Bible, and to raise kids who do, too. If you’re of the same mind, read my piece and pass it along.

  1. I’m working on a kjv reader too! I’ve probably bombarded you with too many messages, but it is looking very promising and I’d love to talk about it with you. I sent you an email. Just an fyi. πŸ™‚ keep pushing for readability…

  2. Happened to look at the KJV reader’s bible from Holman mentioned in the ‘Christianity Today’ article in this link … https://www.christianbook.com/kjv-readers-ablack-brown-bonded-leather/9780805489606/pd/489606?event=ESRCN. Nice layout, but who wants to read a bible with pronunciation symbols in every name? Instead of Adam, Spirit, Jesus, Holy Ghost you get Ad’-am, Spir’-it, Je’-sus and Ho’-ly Ghost in every instance! Why in the world would anyone do that?

  3. “. . . my answer to those who worry about the future of Christianity is to start reading the Bible, and to raise kids who do, too.” Amen

  4. Hi Mark,
    I’ve been pretty impressed with both the ESV Reader’s Set and Bibliotheca. I’m more familiar with the ESV, but an updated ASV sounds almost better translation-wise. If bought the ESV Reader, I’d be getting the hardcover. Should I consider Bibliotheca instead?

  5. Adam Lewis Greene posted a picture you provided to him of the paperback Bibliotheca, and that got me excited because that must mean you have the set and may already be working on that blog post!

  6. I totally agree: “my answer to those who worry about the future of Christianity is to start reading the Bible, and to raise kids who do, too”. Great work! Congratulations!
