“Formatting the Word of God”

Christians have never been able to read the Bible without interpretive influences already in place. Professor Wallace will trace these “helps” for readers through the centuries and talk about some key events—the development of the codex and its relation to the canon, columns and public reading, the use of color, Eusebian canons, and other features. He will take his survey through to the modern Bible formats in our print editions and discuss the benefits and detriments of Stephanus’s versification—especially on the King James Bible and New American Standard.
