Bibliotheca Is Home
1. Bibliotheca Is Home
I have very much enjoyed seeing Bibliotheca make its way across the US and into many of your homes. Although I held the final product several weeks ago, it has never felt more finished than in the past few days as I’ve seen photos of you – the ones who supported this vision over two years ago – holding it in your hands and placing it on your shelves.
And if your books haven’t come yet, hold tight – they’ll arrive soon.
2. Huffington Post
If you’re interested, the Huffington Post recently published a nice write-up about Bibliotheca.
3. Practical Advice
The best way to get the books out of the slipcase is to plant your thumbs on the top corners of the slipcase, lightly press your fingers on both sides of the books, and pull them all out together, like so:
4. Introduction, Acknowledgements, & Colophon
There’s an insert at the front of the New Testament that directs you to the web address where the introduction to Bibliotheca will be posted. We’ll have that up before the New Year. It will outline the various aspects of the project – most of which you’ll already be familiar with if you’ve been following the updates (though you may want a refresher) – but it will give special attention to the featured translation, a new revision of the American Standard Version of 1901. I’ll send out a link when that’s published.
In the meantime, the Acknowledgements and Colophon can be found at the back of the New Testament.
