    “….and we’re rapidly coming to a point where you’ll be able to create your own customized version of the Bible — something one technology expert aptly dubbed the Franken-Bible.”

    Of course my favorites bibles are:

    The Jefferson Bible
    The Message
    The GN NIV
    The NKJV American Patriot’s Bible
    The Princess Bible
