I became a fan of Mosaic on Facebook, Shared it, mentioned the launch on my blog, tweeted about it and about this give away, and I'm taking part in the NLT Mosaic Blog-a-Thon at the ="">Church of Jesus Christ.

Have done everything but mention the Mosaic Bible in my blog (because I just found out about it about 30 minutes ago).
I have been looking into getting a copy of the NLT for awhile. We forever are using it in our writings. This Bible makes the idea all the more appealing. Loved the YouTube video.
Nice work on setting up the Mosiac NLT!

Posted all the info here. Not sure if the trackback worked:

At any rate, as a contributor, I am really excited to see this project take off!

Glad to hear of the release, but saddened that I am "excluded" from the contest. I'm not on Facebook. I don't "tweet". To put the final nail in, I don't have a blog. So, I hope the lucky winner enjoys their success.


22nd September, 2009 at 6:40 pm

I put it on my face book and I am getting ready to post it on my blog tomorrow. I am also going to link the live demo on there as well. It looks like a great Bible.

I have been using the Mosaic Bible each day and like a previous commit I do not use faceboob or any of the others mentioned. For all of us who are blessed by the NLT Mosaic Bible and can't enter the contest I wish there might ve another way. Mike
