Font of wisdom

I came across a recommendation of Jesus: A Theography, by Leonard Sweet and Frank Viola, which included this excerpt:
Many Christians grew up reading red-letter editions of the [New] Testament. These are the Bibles wherein the words of Jesus are printed in red. Now imagine a[n Old] Testament where every reference, every prophecy, every shadow, every image, and every allusion to Christ appeared in red. If such a red-letter [Old] Testament existed, it would glow in the dark. And if Jesus is YHWH..., then it could light up a living room.
I love the idea of a red-letter Old Testament. And the Catholic Edition could have every reference, every prophecy, every shadow, every image, and every allusion to Mary appear in blue. The regular edition would have the same words in blue, but the introduction would say they refer to the Church.
