I honestly wasn’t sure what to expect when I signed on to review Gospel of Matthew, and when it arrived in the mail, I’ve got to admit, I sat and stared at it for awhile, trying to figure out exactly what it was. You see, it’s nothing like any other book I’ve seen.

The text is the entire book of Matthew from the New Living Translation. But it doesn’t look like a Bible.

The text is complimented with photographs. But rather than images from the Holy Land or actors in biblical attire, it’s modern art.

The pages are thick cardstock. It feels like a coffee table book. But it’s small.

I finally figured it out. Gospel of Matthew is a gift book. It’s a work of art that can be given to graduates, new Christians, art lovers, or that hard to please person on your Christmas gift list. Of course, it’s also a book you can enjoy yourself, especially if you appreciate beauty and scripture.

Gospel of Matthew is published by a new company called Alabaster. They currently have seven books of the Bible available with more in the future. Their vision is to “explore the intersection of creativity, beauty, and faith for the sake of a more beautiful human flourishing.” Visit the Alabaster website to learn more about these stunning Bible books.
