The Bible's New Testament has just been transformed into a magazine form and can now be bought at leading newspaper stands, airports and bus stations in Germany, Switzerland and Austria.
This was announced by a German publisher who said the magazine features unaltered texts of the Bible's New Testament with images presented in a better layout.
"Andreas Volleritsch said Wednesday 30,000 copies of the magazine are now available at newspaper stands, train stations and airports in Germany, Switzerland and Austria", Inquirer.net reports.
He said the idea occurred to him and his colleague Oliver Wurm when they realized two years ago how "tiresome" reading a classic, narrowly printed Bible was.
"Some quotes and paragraphs in the magazine are highlighted and several pictures show scenes from a passion play. The 244-page magazine goes on sale for €9.20 ($13)", according to ca.news.com
Volleritsch said the next project is to do something similar with the Old Testament.
