The big thing nowadays is specialized Bibles. Depending on your area of expertise, there is a Bible tailored just for that.
For example, many churches are now interested in environmental issues, so there is a Green Bible. According to their website, the Green Bible includes verses that speak about taking care of creation highlighted in green; essays by Brian McLaren, N. T. Wright, and Bishop Desmund Tutu; and recycled paper and soy-based ink.
When Wendell Berry wrote about conservationism as a sacred duty, I don't think he was referring to a "green Bible."
For the hardcore nationalist in your family, there's The American Patriot's Bible. According to the product description, "This extremely unique Bible shows how the history of the United States connects the people and events of the Bible to our lives in a modern world. The story of the United States is wonderfully woven into the teachings of the Bible and includes a beautiful full-color family record section, memorable images from our nation's history and hundreds of enlightening articles which complement the New King James Version Bible text."
Which is interesting, because many of America's founding fathers--Thomas Paine, James Madison, George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson--were Deists.
And then there are Biblezines, which are Bibles designed the look like magazines. These are for teenagers who hate books but love Cosmopolitan and Seventeen.
So you see, the Bible can be presented in ways that anyone can read it, so there is no excuse. But why stop there? Here are some other ways you can specialize the Bible:
-The Stoner Bible. Made entirely out of hemp, and all the verses that mention the world "herb" are highlighted in green. Also includes psychedelic illustrations from the Book of Revelation ('cause we all know John had to be on something!).
-The Feminist Bible. Not only is God a woman, but so are Moses, Jesus, Abraham, and all the other major characters. Satan is still a guy, though.
-The Lolcat Bible. The entire Bible told through pictures of cute cats with bad grammar. "Let thur be lite, and it wuz gud."
-The Samuel L. Jackson Audio Bible. Narrated by Jackson. Frequent use of the word "motherf***er," though.
Any other suggestions?
