Your guest is correct, you can turn the pages of The Saint John’s Bible on the Bible website. The page turning section is part of the Bible COMMERCIAL site (sjbible.org). Have the guest go to the following link: http://sjbible.org/custom_prints.html
This will take the guest to the CUSTOM PRINTS page. The guest can select a volume from the list on the left of the screen. When the book opens on the print page, the guest can double click on any corner of the pages and the pages will turn. To view other volumes, select a new volume on the left side of the screen.
I hope this helps.

Thanks for your answers to my previous questions. Got another one from someone today:
"I understood you could go online and see the pages of St John's Bible being turned. I was unable to find out how to do this. Do you know?"
They must be thinking of the British Library and some of the old manuscripts? What's your reply?
