The Bible: too boring?

BBC reports in this article about efforts to change the Bible to a more modern format, including a coffee-table magazine, a graphic novels and iPod audio entertainment. To quote the creator of the coffe-table mag, "It's the most sold book in the world, but the least known. I want to take it off the shelves and put it on the coffee table."

Sadly, there appears to be confusion not only that the Christian Bible is not only the New Testament, but also that the intention of the Scriptures was never to read once and forget, but to help us change our lives and continue our never-ending journey to become holy and perfect as God is Holy and Perfect.

Although, it would be mighty interesting if Heaven did turn out to be Lego-land!
