Bible Across America project visits Springfield

Bible Across America @ Family Christian Store

Wed Nov 12, 2008

Quote from:

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of the New International Version
(NIV) of the Bible, the best-selling translation with more than 300
million copies in print, Zondervan has launched Bible Across America,
a cross-country RV tour. Bible Across America features an RV, piloted
by a four-person team, that is traveling across the continental United
States, making stops at churches, universities, retail stores and
special events where people are invited to contribute a verse to
complete a handwritten Bible America's NIV.

Family Christian Store
(between Target and Walmart on the west side of Spfld)
3435 Freedom Dr.
Springfield, Illinois
1.00 - 7.00 pm

Publisher puts 'NIV' Bible in Americans' handwriting

Springfield email list post regarding this event.

Adults and children participated in this project.

I imagine that the kids may have had better handwriting, since they work on it more often in school.

The verse you were given to write out (twice) was the next one from the previous writer.
So you couldn't just request John 11:35.

When I was there they were working on two different chapters, Judges 16 and Deuteronomy 29.

My handwriting is pretty bad, so I'm not posting a photo of my verse.

If I had been asked what I would like to write out, my answer would probably be something from Philippians.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable--if anything is excellent or praiseworthy--think about such things.

Below: a flier explaining the event.
