from the St. John's Bible

Creation, Covenant, Shekinah, Kingdom (Wisdom of Solomon 10–11)

The St. John’s Bible has been completed after fifteen years of labor.  I’ve followed this process for a number of years. I think I was a freshman in college when I first heard about the work.  It’s an amazing endeavor and I’m thankful that it was undertaken.  There are far too few examples of this sort of work by Christians today.  Our Bibles and our buildings are disposable, created for consumption and decay.  Very little that we make today (besides our refuse) will endure even a few hundred years.  This is impressive not simply because of the skill and care that went into it, but also because it was such a lengthy commitment, and because it will last for many, many years.
