It’s so funny to me that ideas like these come in waves. Why didn’t anyone say this stuff in 1976? Or 1946? Or did they? I did find a reader’s edition of the KJV NT from the 1930s once.

I know I picked up a verseless and chapterless Bible edition—and then a whole case of them to sell to friends—around 2006.
