Word of YHVH Bible

I recently received an e-mail from Mary E. Lewis that she has just finished updating her work, the Word of YHVH Bible. She writes "The most important feature is the Hebrew name and title YHVH Elohim replaces the words LORD and God in both the OT and NT." For more information about her work or to download a free PDF of the updated version visit

The Pre-Nicene New Testament

The Pre-Nicene New Testament is a work by Robert Price with a copyright date of 2006. I'm not sure how I missed this one. Thanks to one of the folks in the Bible Versions Debate and Discussion group now we all know about it (Thanks, DJ)! Price is a member of the Jesus Seminar, so expect that brand of "scholarship" and theology. He adds 27 other books to the New Testament for 1200+ pages. There is a review of it in the Bible Versions Debate and Discussion group. I do not have copy yet. It is expensive at $36 USD.

Have you heard of the International Society of Bible Collectors? It started in 1964 and continues today. The society produces the "Bible Review Journal" twice a year. Our yearly conference will be in Springfield, Missouri, U.S.A. In addition to our meetings (and countless discussions about Bibles) we will be visiting "The Passages: Treasures of the Bible." It is The Green Bible Collection. The dates will be October 10-11, 2014. I will try to post more when other details are available. The ISBC website is:

Bible Versions Debate and Discussion

There is a well managed group on Facebook for the discussion of Bible Versions. It is called Bible Versions Debate and Discussion. Why not stop by and enter the conversations?

Classic Note Bible

I've seen Bibles with extra margins for note taking. I've also seen homemade Bibles with a blank page in between the pages for note taking. But this is the first Bible I've seen with pages already bound in for taking notes. The paper is standard Bible paper, so it is thin. But it looks a lot smaller than the homemade one I was planning. This is the King James Bible, genuine leather, made by Anchor Bible Concepts. Visit their website to take a look. Thanks to PS for this link.
