    Depending on the context of what you're writing, I'd say you could get away with just writing it phonetically in katakana (which I don't know how to input on this board!!)

    Since Bible is a Western word, there is probably no specific word in Japanese, it would just be something like BAI-BURU in katakana. And since the adjective holy is part of the general concept, you could probably be understood with that in katakana too - HO-RII BAI-BURU.

    There are message boards at http://lrnj.com/forum/ where people would be helpful.

    hope this helps!

    Tonichelle:

    Not quite the answer you are looking for, but this reminds of the book "The Poison Wood Bible" by Barbara Kingsolver. Ever read it? It's a wonderful book. The story is about a family of Missionaries who go to live in Africa. The father is a preacher and is trying to teach the natives about the bible. Since there is no real word in their language for bible - they think he is saying "Poison Wood Bible" when he preaches to them. It's a great read!

    Hope you find your info. Would be a challenge.
