In 1904, Congress ordered the publication of Thomas Jefferson’s personal Bible: a version Jefferson had created by cutting, pasting and rearranging the gospels of the New Testament:

In a letter sent from Monticello to John Adams in 1813, Jefferson said his “wee little book” of 46 pages was based on a lifetime of inquiry and reflection and contained “the most sublime and benevolent code of morals which has ever been offered to man.”

Those interested can read the full text of it online, though a printed copy seems more appropriate given Jefferson’s love of books.
