Here’s a bible that won’t do much thumping. Weighing 1,094 pounds, with 8,048 pages that measure 43.5 inches tall, and a laid open width of 98 inches, this bible was the Abilene Christian University library’s “largest” donation ever in 1956. The bible was built in Los Angeles by Louis Waynai in 1930 who gave it to a church in Fort Worth which later passed it on to ACU. Louis spent 2 years and over 8,700 hours creating this massive version of the complete King James Bible. Using a huge rubber stamp press that he made himself, Waynai was able to print the text on each page…”
