Christian Book Fair: Sept 2-6, Cochin

Imagine you’re sitting down to read the Bible, and have to do so using a microscope! Well, that’s what you’d have to do if you’re gonna buy the ‘slide’ Bible. It’s one of the attractions at the five-day Cochin International Christian Book Fair at the Town Hall, in Cochin. It is made by the R&D dept of NCR Corporation at Dayton, Ohio of USA. It has all 66 books of the Old and New Testaments. On one slide you can read 1245 pages of the Bible. Now, isn’t that something!

The fair kicked off today with a lot of people queuing up to take a look at and buy varieties of Bibles. And when I say varieties, I mean it – there’s more than 800 different types of this religious book. There’s the smallest Bible at 10gm and the heaviest one at seven kilos. Also for sale are waterproof Bibles and the steel grip one.

At the fair you can also buy more than 15,000 books, Christian music products, novels, theological resources, gifts and accessories. This mega exhibition is organised by OM Books. They are Asia’s largest publishing house for biblical books.
