On Attire

I will to dress my public day and dine
In selfish mess or thoughtful service fine
And by it stress just how I place the line
Where I will bless the rest with what is mine.

evan, "the books of the bible" comes out august first. it is a single column bible without chapters or verses, albeit the tniv version. has there ever been anything else like that, or is this a first?

I have enjoyed your blogging, Mrs. Otto, especially knowing that your lovely husband is "smoking hot".
The RSV came out decades ago in a version by Nelson that kept the verse etc in the margin and was single column. Also Richmond Lattimore translated a very nice NT in single column with no verse markings whatever. As helpful as those are for referencing, the magisterial authority of Me (in all my anabaptist regalia) is soemtimes hindered.
