Bibliotheca Is Home

Posted by Adam Lewis Greene (Creator)

Hello, everyone.

Four items:

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.

Keep tagging us so we can see your photos: @BibliothecaCo @AdamLewisGreene #bibliotheca #bibliothecaishome



P.S. The paperbacks are in.

      Heather or Adam Greene
      Where is my personalized library emboss? No communications on this other than for you to say 6 months ago..."Adam Greene will be sending out an update SOON....REALLY????????????
      I will try Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to see if I can get someone to honor their commitment to provide one to me. It appears this company may have gone dark....Sad!

      Almost 6 months since the last update. I've not yet received my order.

      Any news on the introduction? I'm loving the American Literary Version, and I'm anxiously waiting to learn more about it.

    7. Jerran Garnet Madill on

    8. Mauro Marques Filho on

      I want a refund. Waiting more than 2 years, that's a lack of consideration!

    9. Jim Truesdell on

      Have not received mine in the US either. Getting worried...I triple checked all my survey responses.

    12. Hannah Victoria Garner on

      Seems like a lot of people in the US are still waiting...including me :( I tried to contact customer service but received a canned response that didn't pertain to my issue, and then no responses to me after that..........

    13. Jeremy Gardner on

      I see that many have received their items Any word on when others will be receiving theirs?

    14. Steven Landau

      I received it and it is one of the most amazing set of books I have ever read!!! You have all outdone every single goal and promise you have made. You have actually created a new historical writing of the most important book mankind has every had. God bless all of you!

    15. Michael on

      I received mine in Australia today; Adam, I am in awe of this beautiful product you have created. Thank you for your perseverance to complete this project to a very high quality, and thank you for making me excited to engage in God's word as it was originally intended.

      I also live in the United States and have received neither of the two sets I ordered.

    17. Eddie Bromley on

      I live in the US and have still not received mine.

    18. Emily Miller on

      Should I be worried that it's been more than a month since this update and I still have not received my books?

      I received mine days after contacting them via the email on their website. The set is beautiful and worth it. Contact the orders email on their website!

    22. Kris Krause Androsky on

      I still have not heard anything about my USA order. My address and email are correct and have been from day one. Nothing is in my spam folder. No one is responding my my messages, emails or comments. All of my friends have had their sets for a month. I am really getting disappointed with this process. At this point I am feeling like the money was simply stolen from since no one will even respond to my inquiry about my order.

      Katrina Shaw on

      I have patiently been waiting, as have many, for my set of books since Jul 28 2014.
      I'd love an update on how long it will be until Australian orders will be shipped.

    24. Kris Krause Androsky on

      I have yet to hear anything about my order here in Wisconsin. I have not received the email in my inbox or spam. Can you please send it again or simply ship the items to my address as listed on my account?

    25. Bert Rolston on

      Thanks for the heads up especially the shipping info for Hong Kong and Australia.
      Does the Australia shipment include New Zealand, or are they separate?
      I'll e-mail support as well.

    26. Kris Krause Androsky on

      I STILL haven't received mine. Can I please get an update on the order?!

    27. Josh ES O'Shea on

      Got mine! Got both of mine (one ordered from Kickstarter and the other from, actually, at the same time. The "confirm address" email was sitting in my Google Updates inbox for nearly a week for one shipment, and another in Social. So, if you haven't gotten an email saying "you need to open this before we can ship to you", check your various emails. I'm super happy.

    28. St John Peaster on

      What is the expected Shipping date for USA? I moved shortly after I initially backed this project but made sure to update my address right away - almost a year ago now. Are there any tracking numbers?

    29. John Goering on

      What is the expecting shipping time for us Europeans?

    30. Adam Lewis Greene 2-time creator on

      Hello Everyone!

      Hope you are doing great and thank you for your encouragement, and continued patience through this busy holiday season for those we are in contact with.

      We appreciate hearing from everyone and value any and all feedback.

      We are also eager to fully assist anyone with outstanding order concerns. Although we desire flawless shipping and all orders to be accurate, we are not able to avoid the rare order complication through our various partners and the postal service—but please be confident that we are working hard to bridge that gap so every single person has the best possible experience, the correct order, and all items in perfect condition.

      Please also know that our support email ( continues to be the best and only place we can guarantee a reply at this time. Also, please do not send several messages about the same issue as it may slow down your resolution process.

      If you are still waiting to hear about your order status & have not gotten an email with tracking details yet, please look for the emails from "Bibliotheca Address Confirmation" through in the email account you used to place your order(s). We have now sent that email over 8 times to anyone who has not yet opened it to confirm their addresses. One of these confirmation emails must be opened for your address to be confirmed and your order to be shipped. Also shipments from our Hong Kong and Australia fulfillment centers will start shipping in mid January and will arrive soon after.

      We desire everyone to be happy with Bibliotheca and enjoy it for years to come! Please share your experience and/or a photo of your books once they reach their new home on Instagram or Facebook:


      Wishing you all the best!

      Many Thanks & Happy New Year!

      Merry CHRISTMAS everyone! Unto us....

    37. Gregmon on

      I liked it more than my friends, but we all agreed the story was good but the characters were weak. The last 20 minutes or so was excellent!

    38. David Alston on

      My beautifully bound set arrived at my house (in Canada) a few minutes ago. Thank you Adam and every one involved in producing these fine volumes

    39. Kris Krause Androsky on

      I haven't heard anything yet but all of my friends received theirs days ago...getting nervous someone else has my set! �

    40. Paul Miller on

      Brilliant product and worth the wait. Thank you so much for all your endeavors.

      Our set arrived yesterday and I want to thank the Bibliotheca team for their dedication to the vision. The volumes are everything that was promised and we could not be happier with them. Well worth the wait. God bless and Merry Christmas!

    44. Brad Smith on

      Adam, can we get tracking numbers etc... so we can be on the look out? It would be most helpful as this is a very busy season for packages and many of us are traveling. Much appreciated.
      Thx, Brad

      Got mine today. "That'll do pig. That'll do."

    46. Steve & Kay Hortman on

      Got mine today -just a few minutes ago actually !!
      They are lready on my bookcase and within the walnut slipcase.
      Thank you so much to Adam and the rest of the team. I know it has been a long wait, but I can't wait to spend time pouring over these volumes -for many years to come.

    47. Eric Moreno on

      Received one case on Saturday and another was on my porch chair as I walked out my front door this morning! So excited. I waited for the books to acclimate before opening because it's been so cold lately. But the look, the feel, the weight is all perfect. I've begun reading and look forward to spending many years in this collection and eventually passing them to my children. Thank you so much!!!

    48. Emm Wedrat on

      When might Aussies receive theirs? Hoping I get it before Christmas!

    49. Zach Winters on

      they're so beautiful and we're really enjoying the reading experience... thanks for staying true to the vision. I've been as impressed with your vision + follow through as I was excited about experiencing the end product. blessings.

    50. Michael Phillip Daly on

      Received my set and it is beautiful. My set, however, did not include any sorts of inserts with additional information.
