[access-uk] Re: IN TOUCH - ACCESS TO RELIGIOUS MATERIAL

Hi to both Ian and Iain, Steve, Tris and anyone else who is interested here 
. . ..

Of course, there's a wealth of stuff out there on the NET for Christians, 
with Bible studies, plans for reading and lots of versions of the Bible 
which you can both read and search online.

See

www.biblegateway.com

I am interested to know if you can still purchase a full copy of the Bible 
in Braille from RNIB, or perhaps Scottish Braille Press.  Torch Trust are 
often given Bible volumes when people no longer require them but, as a best 
seller (at least for years and years) we shouldn't have to go down this 
route really to get a copy in our preferred format.

Certainly, it would seem that those of us who have access to computers are 
very well served these days, in comparison with my first days as a 
Christian, but I'd be interested now to know exactly what's out there for 
those who do not use technology!
