Wide Load

Last Friday I received a brand new wide margin ESV bible. I have been using the ESV for a number of years and have had issue with the lack of margin on the pages for notes. Well it is finally here so I am reading my bible again. I decided to get the hardback edition so that I don't have to worry about killing a cow...and cardboard is half the cost of cow skin. Truth be known - I take my bible in my man-purse everywhere I go and it seems that a hardback would be more durable. I will let you know how it all works out.

So far I have read parts of 1 Kings, Song of Solomon and Hebrews and I have to be honest - it's much better reading now.

The ESV offers "more than 100 highly creative" editions. You can spend a billion dollars on a bible if you so choose. Scroll through the endless options here.

wide margins rule. unfortunately 1 peter and genesis 2-3 just fell out of my bovine-back NIV (i know that makes me a lesser pastor). i've contemplated the hardback... or maybe a rad canvas zip-up cover.

thought of you the other day while driving past maranatha.

Coooool. Once again, I want one of those, but I don't want to have to transfer all of my copious and brilliant notes from my thinline edition. What to do? Geez, my life is hard.
