How would you like your Bible to read more like your favorite modern novel: a single column layout, no verses, and no thee’s and thou’s?
A guy named Adam Lewis Greene is creating a soon-to-be-released new version of the most sacred book of all called Bibliotheca.
With more than 2,500 supporters and over $250 thousand dollars raised through hisKickstarter online fund-raising campaign, the four-volume, specially designed collection is tentatively set for a December 2014 release.
“The literature of the Bible was experienced by its ancient audiences as pure literary art—written or oral—with none of the encyclopedic conventions we are accustomed to today (chapter divisions, verse numbers, notes, cross references, etc.),” says Greene on his Kickstarter web page.
“Furthermore, the texts were appreciated as individual works of literature, which gradually accumulated into what we recognize as the biblical anthology (Biblia, meaning Books). It wasn’t until the middle ages that navigational conventions were added and the many texts were combined into a single volume (The Bible, meaning The Book, singular).”
