(WALL STREET JOURNAL) — Phillip Patterson has spent the last four years laboring on a project more typical of medieval monks than this era of 140-character bleats. He is transcribing the King James Bible by hand, all 921,820 words of it.

Working on sheets of oversized ivory paper, writing in a careful cursive traced in black ink, the 61-year-old scribe is about three-quarters of the way to the final verse, Revelation 22:21: “The grace of our lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.”
