The Deaf Bible (Or Pronoun Bible) [Name Still in Works]

Several years ago, I ran into a deaf preacher who began to educate me on the special needs the deaf people have. One of the struggles deaf folks have is many of them have a difficult time understanding pronouns. We, of course, understand that a pronoun is a word that replaces a noun. Another clear observation is the Bible is full of pronouns. To help in their understanding (as well as the hearing world), we have begun to take the word of God and place in block quotes the antecedent (the word the replaces the noun), next to every pronoun.

To follow up, even more, the deaf folks are very visual and like the color. To help them to quickly identify things, even more, we have placed every name of God, even in the pronouns, in big bold blue letters. For the names of Christ, we put in big bold red letters and the names of the Holy Spirit (even in pronouns) in big bold purple letters.

Here is an example of what we are doing:

Hebrews 11:6 But without faith it is impossible to please him [GOD]: for he [a person] that cometh to God must believe that he [GOD] is, and that he [GOD] is a rewarder of them [people] that diligently seek him [GOD].
