Well-known fact: The NIV Bible translation is celebrating its 30th anniversary
Only slightly less well-known fact: Multnomah University will play a part in the festivities

Even as you read this, a four-person team is touring 90 U.S. cities in a custom RV, inviting people to hand-write a single verse of the Bible. 31,173 verses (and people) later, they will have compiled what Zondervan Bible Publishers is calling "America's NIV," a handwritten Bible which will be reproduced and sold, complete with an index of everyone who participated in the project. The original copy will be donated to the Smithsonian Institute.

Would you like your scrivenery added to the 31, 172 others' featured in America's NIV? What are you waiting for? Grab your pen and come on down...

  • Where: Multnomah University at 8435 Northeast Glisan Street, Portland, Oregon 97220
  • When: Friday, January 30, 2009 from 10am to 4pm
  • How Much: Admission is free

See you there.

One Response to “Bible Across America”

Reading of the handwritten NIV verses reminded me that many years ago a church in Portland produced a handwritten copy of the entire Bible. Both Richard and I did our chapters in calligraphy. He did one of the Psalms and I did Joel 3.
