There's an interesting use of information visualization at Flikr, a photo site. They have a list of keywords in varying font sizes (looks like maybe 10px to 30px) to show how popular they are. It's simple but effective: bigger = more popular.
I wonder how this would work for written content (rather than keywords): for content words (not stop words or function words), use varying font sizes to reflect document frequency (as a rough indicator of importance). The Hyper-Concordance code, or the frequency-ordered list of New Testament names, would provide most of what's needed for this little science fair project.
