Many Thanks

This note has been a long time coming, but as we approach a new year, I’m tying together some loose ends, and this is one of them.

If Easter is about anything, it’s about being set free. And if Christmas is about anything, it’s about the divine showing up unexpectedly with possibilities for new life.

This past Easter gave me the freedom to change directions, and now with Christmas, some of those in utero possibilities of the past months have been born.

So, with appreciation for all those who have read and responded to my writing here over the past couple years, I’m making it official that the Scarlet Letter Bible project is, for the time being, closed.

Many thanks to all,



1, 2 & 3 John Is Ready for Download

1, 2 & 3 John CoverIf you want to judge a book by it’s cover, I think you will find the latest addition to the Scarlet Letter Bible’s New Testament downloads takes the prize, hands down.

In the two months since the release of Mark’s Gospel, Apple released iBooks Author, which as far as I’m concerned, changed the whole picture for digital book publishing. If you have an iPad, the new format is a real treat. The PDF and old iBook formats are also a lot slicker, thanks to the new editing software.

The text itself is the scarlet rendition of 1, 2 & 3 John, as found scattered throughout posts on the Scarlet Letter Bible over the last 4 months.

Pick your format from the downloads page.

As promised, the complete Scarlet Letter rendition of Mark is ready today.

It includes a few fairly significant revisions from excerpts previously published on the blog, along with numerous minor revisions (and several whole chapters that haven’t been released previously).
