A TOURING exhibition is promising to bring the Bible 'alive' with artefacts, costumes, models and talks.

The Bible Alive exhibition opened at the Christ Church United Reformed Church, in William Street, Windsor, last night with the aim of transporting visitors back to the era of the Bible.

The exhibition, curated by Reverend David Crowther and wife Sally from Meadowsweet Close, Thatcham, includes a goat-hair style tent popular in the time of Abraham, different styles and translations of the Bible and copies of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

Rev Crowther said: "The exhibition is about the Holy Lands in Biblical times, so will also appeal to people of all faiths or no faith. There will be activities for children and young people. Everyone will be most welcome!"

The exhibition, which has been staged across the UK, runs until Friday, May 25 and is open from 10am-8pm. Entry is free.

    Does it also include re enactments of a man pimping his daughters out to a horny mob, the stoning of women who speak out, and a man living in a cave fornicating with his daughters?

    You know, the bits of the bible the choose not to pay attention to.

    Does it include anything about the time of the first council of nicene, when the bible was "assembled" from the multitude of books around at the time and how the men involved where all guided exclusively by God in their choices and how the bible was not tainted by man in this process.
