Build Your Own Bible

Well just yesterday I was blogging at Lingamish on the link between Rock music and the Psalms and now Bryon mentions some editions of the NLT with bright metal covers: The NLT Metal Bible Series. What is the world coming to? Back in June I mentioned the LOLCatBible. While the proliferation of Bibles in English may sometimes seem bizarre, I have noticed the tendency for niche Bibles even in Africa where people don't have any Bible in their language. It is quite common for a Catholic translation to be rejected by Protestants and vice versa. Sound familiar?
In this age of print on demand I can imagine people being able to order their own Bible with customized cover, version and even contents. Lulu.com meets BibleGateway.com. Why not?!?

The "metal Bible" was already selled some year ago in the Netherlands, but I don't think people are going to read it. It's more a collectors item.

The variety of Bibles is amazing once you start digging. I run a little blog ( http://biblereadersmuseum.blogspot.com/ ) that lists new and interesting Bibles and versions. Back in July I noted one called the "PG-13" Bible: "with passages that conflict with contemporary Western moral values and religious standards in bold face."
