CRESTVEIW HILLS, Ky. (AP) -- An exhibit at Thomas More College featuring the Bible is anything but typical.
 
The exhibit that opened last week features a Heritage Edition of Pentateuch from The Saint John's Bible. The Kentucky Enquirer reports that it was the first time scholars at the college had seen such a Bible. The Pentateuch includes the first five books of the Old Testament.
 
The Heritage Edition is a fine art reproduction of The Saint John's Bible, which was commissioned in 1998 to be the first hand-written Bible since the introduction of the printing press. The exhibit at the Eva G. Farris Art Gallery includes 10 illuminated pages from other sections of The Saint John's Bible.
 
The exhibit lasts until Nov. 27, but the Bible will be at the college for a year.
