The Handwritten Bible January 19, 2017
Seven years after he first got the idea, Phillip Patterson finally completed a seemingly impossible task: to hand-copy the entire Christian Bible. He wrote in cursive for four years, sometimes for 14 hours a day, enduring the death of his partner and an ongoing struggle with AIDS. On May 11th, 2013, he finished, copying the last two verses of the Book of Revelation. His favorite passage in the entire Bible? "Love thy neighbor as thyself." Originally aired in 2013.
