Strings of Scripture

I found this today on the Internet -- "Strings of Scripture". I find it both Amazing and Disturbing. The scripture becomes so poetic and beautiful.....But what do we Risk when we distribute the scripture this way? I would love to hear your comments on this.

This is the You Tube Description: "Jesus is String Rendition #1 from the new book "Strings of Scripture ~ Book of 77. Strings of Scripture consists of unique arrangements of Biblical verses categorized by topics. Each topic contains related verses that drive home the essentials meanings of the Living Word.

The book just came out in April of this year:

Inside Out Publishing is pleased to announce the launch of Strings of Scripture, The Book of 77, a unique categorization of more than 3,000 Old and New Testament verses that have been compiled from the world’s most popular versions of the Holy Bible.

The book’s inspired concept presents bible verses by topic. There are 77 topics in this first edition, with the topical verses from both testaments flowing one after the other in a poetic string. All verses are included as originally presented in the most popular printings of the Bible, with the words of Jesus Christ in red. References to each verse are included for further study.

Hm. I'm not sure about this, Russ. The Bible says we are not to take away nor add anything to the word. But it doesn't specify what order in which to present it. I found this to be short...too short. I was disappointed that it ended before I could get my hands up to worship. But I will say this, for myself in particular at this time in my life, this was a good thing. I was reminded just a little more who holds my life, my heart, my soul, and my grief. With that, everything will be ok. Thank you for sharing this my friend.
