The Handwritten Bible is the Methodist Church’s contribution to the ‘Year of the Bible’ – celebrating 400 years of the Authorised Version (“King James”) of the Bible.
Chapters were divided between circuits who were also encouraged to find artistic ways of illustrating the text. The Islington and Camden Mission Circuit was given Revelation chapter 16 – some of the scariest verses in the whole Bible, describing the pouring out of ‘Seven bowls of wrath” on the earth. The fellowship meeting at Caledonian Road wrote out the chapter and young people from the circuit made seven collages representing the seven bowls of wrath in contemporary newspaper headlines.
Along with the contributions from other circuits the whole Bible has been collated, scanned and can be viewed online.
