BEST book DESIGN

 


John 1:17

King James Version

17 For the law was given by Moses, 

but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ.


The best BOOK design I ever came across?

It's an old Bible I bought at a thrift shop.

Had HUGE letters.

Bound simply, in black cloth.

Huge, but lightweight.

Nothing slick.

Nothing shiny.

No images, nothing.

Just the WORD of GOD.

How refreshing in this over-designed society.

Just the WORD of GOD speaking to you.

In its simple, beautiful clarity.

You know the difference among crafty lawyers, slick businessmen, egotistic designers, and the LORD?

Many differences, actually.

The first three will make sure you can't read their words.

GOD makes sure you can read His.

The first three will hide stuff.

GOD reveals stuff.

The first three will twist truth.

GOD reveals truth.

The first three will over-design.

GOD is simple.

The first three is all self.

GOD is all JESUS.

The differences can be summed up in one verse.

GOD's Bible says it all:

Romans 3:23

King James Version

23 For all have sinned, 

and come short of the glory of God;


Of course, there are Bible versions written for ants.

What were the publishers thinking?

But I'm not an ant.

I like reading LARGE, readable letters.

And that to understand the Bible, we need the SPIRIT of GOD.

Only the HOLY SPIRIT can teach us the WORD of GOD.

Only then can we have precise understanding.

GOD led me to His Bible 32 months ago.

SPIRIT led me to the King James Version (KJV).

It has been my SOURCE for GOD's TRUTH since.

The BIBLE is the MOST beautiful book in the world.

Get a people-friendly copy.

Get the simplest, the lightest, with HUGE letters.

Consider it a GIFT from GOD.

He knows your heart.

He will give you a copy suited for you.

He also knows who will actually read.

There can be no more excuses.

The Bible is not a prop.

It is meant to be loved.

Read, and respected.

Live by it.
