Navigate the Pages. The NTP-System
In Chapter 22 (Book 3) I explain about a numbering system to easier navigate the bible. Here is how it works:
Number all the books in the bible - from Genesis (1) to Revelation (57). The bible has 66 books, but numbering from 1-57 only is required, because some have two, or three sections (Kings, Chronicles etc).
Instead of page numbers in the bible, which are seldom used, because they are different for each edition, have the book Number (Genesis 1, Exodus 2, Leviticus 3 ......Revelation 57) printed on the bottom corner of each page.
When preachers announce the reading for the day, say from Habakkuk, they simply mention that Habakkuk is number 32. Everybody finds the scripture in a flash by navigating with the numbers on each page.
Such a system would make the bible more user friendly for new-Christians. Regular users would soon know the 57 numbers corresponding to the book required. (Habakkuk is 32, I already remembered it just by typing this).
