I finally got tired of carrying to church both my hardcover UBS Greek New Testament A Reader's Edition and my cheesy cardboard binding A Reader's Hebrew Bible. So today I had a great idea, instead of having a professional Bible binding company charge me for putting both of these testaments under one leather cover, I remembered I had a pighide leather NASB stored away from years ago (pighide symbolizes God making the unclean, clean). So I decided to rip the binding off both of my Hebrew and Greek Readers' editions, as well as the pighide binding from the NASB. All I did was use 5-minute epoxy and add two ribbons. And thankfully the pighide binding was a full-yapp, otherwise, it would not have wrapped around both Readers' editions. It weighs in at 2,356 pages of three thick inches of Hebrew and Greek!
Maybe Mark Bertrand will feature my Bible on his Bible design blog for creativity!
OK, it is not pretty, but it works. The Greek Reader is a bit longer than the Hebrew Reader, but it has character!
