....but too flexible for any serious study.  At least they're not changing pronouns and such.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.

I could hardly believe Christianity Today was serious about this toy Bible raising any kind of "debate." Since all it does is replace text strings w/icons, the developers have probably never even read the whole Bible, much less translated any of it. The Word itself cannot truly be cheapened or made silly, but things people do to print/digital versions can certainly cheapen it from a human perspective.
