The bible has changed over the years. First it was on scrolls of papyrus or parchment, then codices and after Gutenberg in printed books. To begin with a printed Bible cost as much as a house but the price soon dropped.
Recently Bibles are available as electronic text and many have them downloaded onto their computers or phones. Some almost only read them on the phone.
That is all very useful but here Ian Paul makes the case that you read the Bible better in a hard copy than electronically.
I agree as I find reading electronically makes me skim rather than read, marm and inwardly digest
