    An enormous bible is shown to us by the man who spent two years making it.

  • Description

    Full titles read: "The World's Largest Bible". (new title) "It weighs half a ton and contains 8048 pages!"

    Location of events unknown.

    M/S of a man standing outside, behind a huge bible; he leafs through the pages, giving us the measurements of the book, saying that it took him two years to make it.
