I am not making this up...


Though I kind of wish I had thought of it first. Yes, it's the "Light Speed Study Bible" [photo courtesy of Christianbook.com]
Their promo text follows:
The Light Speed Bible offers a study program that can empower anyone with at least seventh-grade reading ability to read every word of the entire Bible in 24 hours or less-with good comprehension. Or if readers want to start with the New Testament using the Light Speed Bible strategy the average time it will take to read every word and phrase from Matthew 1 through Revelation 22 is about five hours. Furthermore, these total times include not just one but three passes through the entire text--an experience that will transform lives through exposure to the whole Word of God.
Wow, why didn't we think of this before? Now we can get that pesky task of reading the Bible taken care of, once and for all! And not just once, but three times--that's got to be more than most pastors in your denomination, right?
As Hank Hill says, "Bobby, you need to be lectured all afternoon..."

how can it be possible to read the bible in such light speed?

What puzzles me is the promise that with this program you can read it "with good comprehension." There are bits of the Bible I've read dozens and dozens of times. In the original languages. And I still wouldn't call my comprehension of them "good."

This reminds me of a t-shirt a friend used to wear. It read something like: "You can learn to play the guitar in just 5 minutes."

Whoa, time to take my Panexa.
