Magazine Aims To Sex Up The Bible

Be honest, when was the last time you cracked open a Bible? I read it for the first time in college and only because my professor made me. But peeps from a publishing company called Illuminated World want to make God’s diary more…enticing to the unsaved. These publishers have created Bible Illuminated: The Book. This glossy, magazine-style book (which retails for $35) has given the Bible a major facelift. With big photographs and pop culture references galore, this sexy page turner is meant to appeal to more than just religious folk. Recognizable characters have been replaced with celebs like Angelina Jolie, Bono, and Muhammed Ali and concepts like pain and suffering are illustrated by recent photos of sickness in Africa instead of Jesus on a cross. What do you think? Is turning the Bible into a glossy magazine blasphemy or brilliant? [Bible Illuminated]
