Grand Rapids, Mich., Nov. 11, 2016 — The birth of Jesus in Bethlehem isn’t the beginning of the story of Jesus. The entire Bible points to him.

Filled with 66 book introductions, over 1,000 articles, and seven compelling essays by bestselling authors Louie Giglio, Max Lucado, John Piper, Ravi Zacharias, and Randy Alcorn, The Jesus Bible will help readers follow the thread of Jesus from cover to cover. Discover a new depth to the Bible’s meaning as readers see him in every chapter of the story.

Announced initially at the church he pastors, Passion City Church in Atlanta, Georgia, Giglio, who served as general editor of the project, shared: “The Jesus Bible helps people understand from the very first page that the Bible is one story in 66 books, and it is all about one person. From Genesis to Exodus, to Romans, Acts, the prophets, Psalms, the gospels…the whole book is about Jesus.”

Giglio continued, “We had the opportunity to create a resource that I hope is going to change future generations and help Scripture come alive so that Jesus is standing on every single page, so that as you read the Bible, you understand Jesus throughout the Bible.”

The Jesus Bible will go on sale on January 3 and is available in three beautifully designed covers: gray linen cloth over board, robin’s egg blue Leathersoft™, and a brown Leathersoft™. The Jesus Bible is also available as an ebook.
