The Viral Bible Project

As part of the Biblefresh initiative to celebrate 400 years of the authorised version of the bible, the Viral Bible project was launched this week at Spring Harvest.

The Viral Bible Project has taken off with a roar at Spring Harvest Skegness, as the members of the Christian Motorcycle Association got ten new Bibles into circulation around the country. The Bibles will be passed on from hand to hand, linking friends and sharing Bible passages along the way.

Specially-customised NIV Bibles, donated by publishers, Hodder, will be randomly distributed at Christian festivals such as ROOTS, Keswick, New Wine, Summer Madness, Leading Edge and Soul Survivor during the spring and summer.

The happy recipients will be invited to enter their basic details and highlight a passage that has challenged or influenced them. They will log onto a dedicated website – to place a ‘pin’ on a Googlemap, and then pass their Bible on – to go as far afield as possible.

It sounds like quite a fun way of engaging with the scriptures.  I wonder if someone will pass one on to me.
