Posts From the Past: Bible Version Generator

This one is almost ten years old, but it still amuses me. Sorry if you have seen this numerous times before.


Given the proliferation of translations and versions of the Bible in English it is getting harder and harder to find new titles for them. So as a service, I am offering the Bible Version Generator which any publishers are free to use (as long as they put money in my secret Swiss bank account). Simply choose one word from each column and string them together to produce the title for a new English Bible.

New Intercontinental Woman’s Bible
Revised Literal Men’s Version
Authentic Dynamic Youth God Book
Inspired Spiritual Study Testament
God’s Standardized

I reckon that there are about 400 possible new versions to be generated from this simple grid, that should keep things going for a while. If anyone has come up with this idea before, please don’t sue me for copyright.

The serious point about all of this is that while we expend so much energy talking about which version is best in English there are still 2,000 or so languages with no word of Scripture.

I did update it so that it ran automatically on the blog, for a while, but after a WordPress update it no longer worked.
