St. Norbert College has special edition of Bible on loan until March 2019

Local News

St. Norbert College has one volume of the Heritage Edition of the Saint John’s Bible on loan until March 2019 for students, professors, and the public to have access to.

The Bible debuted on campus on Friday and was blessed in song.

This special edition of the Bible is two feet tall and three feet wide.

It features calligraphy and colorful illustrations, some featuring real painted gold, all on 100% untreated cotton pages. 

Lecturers are already scheduled to speak at the college about this special print as well.

Each set of the Heritage Edition Bible includes seven volumes. There are only 299 sets of this Bible in the world. 

The volume loaned to St. Norbert College is worth $25,000. 

Julie Massey, associate vice president for mission and student affairs at St. Norbert College, says the artistry in the Bible draws people in.

“So we can read the Holy Scriptures and think about them analytically and think about them from a perspective of faith, but the artwork I think can draw us in to a deeper place of saying ‘What does this mean? And what does it mean for me? As a believer, what is this trying to say to me so I think the art especially really draws people in to take another look at something they might otherwise say, ‘Oh, a Bible,” Massey explained.

This volume of the Bible will be moving around the St. Norbert College campus.
