The Follow the Bible Tour: A Community Celebrating the Scriptures is coming to the Howard Performing Arts Center on the campus of Andrews University on Saturday, Jan. 23, 2010. A special program takes place from 4:30-6 p.m. and the Bible will be on display following. This event is free and open to the public.

This community event celebrating the Scriptures will host a one-of-a-kind traveling Bible written in 66 languages: one for each book. Lebanon, Dubai, Mexico, Jamaica and the Arctic are just a few of the places the traveling Bible has visited as part of the Follow the Bible tour, a Seventh-day Adventist-sponsored event traveling the globe. The 12 x 18 inch Bible is a symbol of intercultural Christian solidarity and consists of 1,500 pages. Readers can view Deuteronomy in Japanese, Joel in Haitian Creole, Matthew in Indonesian and many other translated books.

The 4:30 p.m. program will include an archaeological standpoint of the scriptures by the Horn Archaeological Museum; "The Bible in English Literature" by Scott Moncrieff; recitation and chanting of scripture; scriptural songs lead by Stephen and Susan Zork; and more. Displays in the Howard Lobby will feature many organizations including Banner Books of St. Joseph, ABC Christian Book Center, the Old Rugged Cross Foundation, and art work from the Andrews University Department of Art. The lobby displays will be open starting at 3:30 p.m. and will remain open for a period of time following the program. For additional information, contact Glenn Russell at

Follow the Bible is an initiative to stimulate a deeper interest in reading the Bible. The tour began fall 2008 in the Philippines and will travel to each Adventist world division until July 2010, when the journey climaxes at the opening of the Seventh-day Adventist General Conference Session in Atlanta, Ga. The tour's stop at the Howard Center is sponsored by the Department of Religion & Biblical Languages at Andrews University in partnership with various community Christian organizations.
