Podcast: On Bible Designs

 

Mere FidelityOn this week’s episode of Mere Fidelity, Derek and I are joined by J. Mark Bertrand of the Bible Design Blog for a stimulating discussion of the importance of Bible formats and designs. Mark has written about the rise of digital Bibles and their effect on printed Bibles, not least in the development of new Reader’s Bibles.

We discuss Crossway’s beautiful new six-volume ESV Reader’s Bible (and their single volume reader’s Bible here) and Bibliotheca‘s forthcoming reader’s Bible, reflecting upon the ways that these change our relationship and forms of engagement with the biblical text. The article I reference on the movement from the (vo)codex to the co(in)dex can be read here.

You can also follow the podcast on iTunes, or using this RSS feed. Listen to past episodes on Soundcloud and on this page on my blog.
