#2 BIBLE FAN GALLERY ENTRY


Bible Reading Project is in the process of creating a gallery of photos featuring pictures of people's favorite personal Bibles. All you need to do is send a photo of your Bible with your name and your general location to Biblereadingproject@gmail.com (you may also want to include the title of the specific edition you are using). I will post the picture in the gallery with your first name and your location. Be creative in your photography. Highlight what makes your Bible distinctive. Capture any marginalia or wear. Take a picture of your Bible in an interesting environment. But please send only ONE picture. The gallery will have a link under the Introductions and Features box at the top left of the site. This is worth one entry in the drawing.
