A retired Croatian bishop claims to have a world record after collecting almost 1,000 Bibles in 250 different languages. Marijan Oblak, 87, has gathered a collection of 929 different editions of the book and claims to have the most varied Bible collection in the world.

Oblak from the southern Croatian town of Zadar said: “I’m grateful to everyone who has given me a Bible. Some of them I got personally from the late Pope John Paul II. I have been collecting Bibles for 19 years and I hope that next year I’ll get past the 1,000 mark.”
