Double-Edged Flash Drive of Jesus

by Rose Marie Berger, Jeannie Choi | February 2009

“Thy word is a [USB flash drive] unto my feet” is the good news that the folks over at The Amazing Bible Cross are singing.

“Thy word is a [USB flash drive] unto my feet” is the good news that the folks over at The Amazing Bible Cross are singing. They’ve created a “wearable” wooden cross that holds a USB flash drive containing 72 hours of the King James Bible, recorded by actor Alexander Scourby (memorable for his role as Nigel Fargate in the soap All My Children). But wait, there’s more! The Amazing Bible Cross also has the complete Bible in digital text form and can be downloaded onto a computer or personal MP3 player. Sojourners’ call to the ABC office revealed that the product is “handcrafted” in China from an unknown hardwood. It sells for $39.95. (We recall a time when Christians could get their crosses for free.)
