The first thing that strikes you about Adam Lewis Greene's project, Bibliotheca is the beauty of what he is creating.
The picture above captures some of that, even before you open one of the four (soon to be five) volumes that make up his reprinting of the Bible. Using the American Standard Version of 1901, Green has aimed to make a Bible that is suitable for reading, rather than proof-texting. With this aim in mind, he has removed chapter headings, chapter numbering and verses. That makes for an initially unnerving experience, but a valuable one. Have a look...
Greene has used Young's Literal Translation to adjust syntax in places and has copped a bit of flack for that. He's a bit off with his ideas about Bible transmission history, too.
But ultimately the point is this: this project reinforces the experience of the Bible as a set of books to be read rather than quoted!
Interestingly the project was funded on-line using Kickstarter. Hoping to raise US$37,000, Greene was inundated with cash and ended with...$1,440,345!! So let's add a second point at the risk of understatement: it reflects the continuing significance of the Bible as a printed book in our culture.
