The People’s Bible

In their latest e-newsletter, the Scottish Bible Society looks back on a project run jointly last year with the Bible Society in England and Wales called The People’s Bible. This project marked the 400th anniversary of the publication of the ‘King James’ (or ‘Authorised’) version of the Bible in 1611 and invited men and women across the UK to write, in their own hand-writing, two verses from the Bible. These were then digitally copied and stored until the whole Bible had been completely rewritten.
The newsletter states: “Through faithful prayers, the time people gave to volunteering and with generous financial gifts we were able to travel ten thousand miles around Scotland, to one hundred and forty one venues, where twenty four thousand verses of the Bible were written.” The film below tells the story of The People’s Bible project.
