Site Review: BibleExperience.com

Hey everyone!

I recently worked on a site with for a client,
http://www.bibleexperience.com. We spent some time going back and forth. I¹d
built a much larger site, but we ended up in this mini-site experience,
which will be reworked into a larger experience over the summer, featuring
all 400 celebrities. The Bible Experience is a product of Zondervan, a bible
manufacturer. It is 400 African American celebrities speaking the Bible over
76 CDs.

Collaborative Review Routing

Right now, one of my teams is trying to find the most efficient method
of routing a document or site for review. The big items on the agenda
are the Design, Content and UX aspects. Right now, those are three
different documents (comps, manuscript and IA Doc), but are trying to
find a way to either:

a) combine them into a single document -- and/or --
b) Find a way of adding version control into the docs to track

Has anyone found collaborative tools that will allow version control,
commenting AND combining the different aspects of the project
