EELBV Proofs are on my desk!

I received the proofs today for the Encyclopedia of English Language Bible Versions! Now I have to read my book again looking for errors. Then I create an index for the book. The book is scheduled to be sent to the printer on 11/16/2012. Things are coming together!

The Brick Bible: The New Testament

There is another volume in the Lego Bible series. It is The Brick Bible: The New Testament: A New Spin on the Story of Jesus. It is also available for the Kindle, though the extensive graphics mean only the Kindle Fire series would display it well. If anyone has this or gets it, please feel free to send a review in comments or e-mail.

The Native Bible

Kevin finds another one! This is the Native Bible.
Drawing the Old Testament from the Greek Septuagint LXX, (dated by scholars about 1000 years older than the oldest copies of the Hebrew Masoretic Text), and the oldest sources for the New Testament, the Native Bible project is an effort to accurately translate the Bible from the oldest sources into the newest English words, without concern about the resulting message coming across as "primitive." It is an effort akin to the Transparent Bible Project...
This version is available online or in software or as an Android app.
