I have worked around printing my entire professional career. The unspecified 'Bible' translation to be primarily discussed in this topic is a readable text, in visual form like a hardcopy, which tactilely can be experienced (not an audio recording, for example) as a result of the printing process. The following five scenarios are intended to be thought-provoking. At the Bible factory there has been some problems. It seems some units of your favorite version has been produced that has Holy Bible (nice gold foil embossed) on the front cover but the pages inside are entirely blank! Not a drop of ink inside. Is this a 'Bible'? Additionally, the Bible factory has some of your preferred version that has been produced with Holy Bible (gold foil embossed) on the cover but the pages inside are mostly blank. A few pages have random ink splatter, spots, and smudges (it seems to be precisely the amount of ink normally used to reproduce the correct text). Would you defend this as a 'Bible'? Also discovered were some finished units that had a pefectly produced Holy Bible cover but all the alphanumeric characters printed on the pages inside were so hopelessly scrambled, malformed and blurry that there was no decipherable or comprehendible text. Is this properly callled a 'Bible'? Some other product was manufactured with Holy Bible on the cover but about half of the pages inside randomly appear blank. The other half appear perfectly normal (but no individual book of Scripture is more than 65% complete). Is this a true 'Bible'? Finally, some units of your favorite version (the Holy Bible cover was fine) was discovered with some random errors (a few on almost every page) and occassionaly some missing text (approximately 10% from the standard text). But the manufacturer is able to insert an Addendum in the back of the book with all the ommitted text and with every error identified. Is this a genuine 'Bible'? Does a 'Bible' only come into existance when printed in its' fully finished form (accurate and complete)? If not, when then (at what point in the printing process) does a 'Bible' first emerge? A possibly surprising answer may be revealed.
