The Bible—A New Kind of “Book!”

When we refer to the Bible as the Book of all books it doesn’t necessarily mean only a printed version!

We’ve come a long way from the days of the Gutenberg Press and the first printing of Bibles!

Smartphones and social media platforms are not only changing the way we interact with one another, but also how we interact with the Bible. In a 2017 BBC article, “Future Now," the author pointed out: “One of the first things Christians did with the computer was to put the Bible into digital formats. . .to some extent, the smartphone Bible is now replacing the book Bible!”

When the new Museum of the Bible opens later this year, technology will be central in bringing the experience of the Bible to life, welcoming the world to engage one of the most significant books in history!
