Up in Tallahassee last week I had the opportunity of launching, together with Amos Rolnik, the new project he thought up – lawmakers of the world inscribe the bible. His original project, “people of the world inscribe the bible”, gave people of all nations and all religions the opportunity to take part in a truly global project whereby each person wrote one verse from the Bible. Once completed, each Bible book was then bound and sent to a central archive in the “Valley of the Bible” in Israel.
The new project envisioned a whole bible written completely by elected officials. The world premiere for this project was in Tallahassee as Governor Charlie Crist wrote Genesis chapter 1, Verse 1. After him, many other Floridian leaders wrote their own verses in the Bible, including Attorney General McCollum Speaker of the House Cretul, Majority Leader Hasner and many other friends.
A truly beautiful project, and we were lucky enough to be able to launch it right here in Florida. Again, Florida is first!
