PICTURES: The 'world's most beautiful Bible' could be available soon

by Eno Adeogun

An independent publisher in Lithuania is trying to raise £9,000 in donations to create large family-sized Bibles with 1,600 pages that include more than 900 classic illustrations.

The small publishing team from Obuolys decided to celebrate its 1,000th published book with new King James Versions of the holy book.


They have already received nearly half of the money they are seeking via the fundraising platform Kickstarter to create "one of the world's most impressive Bibles ever printed in the XXI century".

The campaigns page explains: "Usually, Bibles are printed on a very thin paper - like dictionaries and encyclopedias. It's transparent and therefore difficult to read - technically the material is known as lightweight offset paper.

"To guarantee maximum quality and great reading experience we will use opaque, acid-neutral, non-fading archival quality paper, printed and sewn into binding to open flat and last for generations."

There are 750 exclusive copies with family's names on the cover available to pre-order with a pledge of at least £115.

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
