About Biblia Sacra Design


First of all, a tribute: As a lifelong lover of fine editions of great books, and a devout student of the Bible, I have always had a deep interest in high-quality Bibles.  When I discovered J. Mark Bertrand’s Bible Design Blog a few years ago, the interest became an obsession.  If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I hope that this additional attempt to further the discussion of the form and function of Holy Writ will reflect an appropriate appreciation for Mark’s efforts that have done a great deal to inspire the Bible-reading public to expect more of the editions the publishers sell us and to find greater enjoyment in reading great editions of the Scriptures.


About Robert Munday

Munday_Robert_IMG_0011_blackboardI spent thirty years in theological education, serving as Professor of Systematic Theology and Dean of Library and Information Services at Trinity School for Ministry, in Ambridge, Pennsylvania and following that with ten years as President and Dean of Nashotah House Theological Seminary, in Nashotah, Wisconsin.  These days I am Rector (senior pastor) of All Saints Anglican Church in Montrose, Colorado.  My theological influences include John Stott and J.I. Packer, both of whom I have been blessed to know personally since my own days as a seminary student.  Most recently, I was privileged to work with Dr. Packer on the Catechism of the Anglican Church in North America.  As one who has seen the power of the Bible, as the Word of God written, to transform lives, my reverence for the Scriptures extends into matters of translation and also an appreciation of the great care that has been taken to prepare beautiful editions of the Bible down through the ages.
