Every book in the Bible is a beautifully designed piece of literature.

The Bible Project is a non-profit that creates animated videos explaining biblical books and biblical themes. One of our video series, Read Scripture, summarizes every biblical book visually with an illustrated diagram that traces the structure and themes of the book and how that book fits into the entire biblical narrative.

Every Diagram Collected in One Book

This coffee table book is the collection of every diagram in the Read Scripture series alongside short, written summaries of that book. The diagrams include the Old Testament and New Testament books in the Protestant tradition. 

These illustrated summaries are bound together in a gray cloth hardcover binding. The dimensions of this book are 19"x12" (48cm x 30cm). It is perfect for displaying on a table or pulling out to use during family Bible studies or small groups.

About the Supporter Edition Book

This initial run is meant to be reserved for those who have contributed to The Bible Project in the past. For the first few days, this campaign will only be shared with past supporters so they can claim these. The Supporter Edition has a gray, hardbound, cloth cover with a gold embossing.

If these sell out, we will offer pre-orders for a second run of the books.

About the Posters

These high-quality cloth posters have been a gift to the supporters of our non-profit and are now available during this Kickstarter at a discounted rate, as a "thank you" for making this Kickstarter a success. 

About the Digital Downloads

All of our content is already free to download on our website, but as a "thank you" for contributing to this Kickstarter we will place every item in one easy-to-use download link. 

About the Meet-Up

We figured there might be one or two of you that want to be extremely generous, so we wanted to come up with some sort of moon-shot reward. If you contribute this amount, we'll work with you to plan a meet-up in your city. The cost of the meet-up will be covered with the reward. Jon and Tim will come out, bring some swag, and premiere a video that has not yet been released.

We'll go to anywhere in the U.S. or Canada. 

Thanks for your Contribution!

Once we hit our goal, we will send the first official run to the printer and have these shipped to you by November 2017.

Risks and challenges

This is a low-risk project. Our chosen printer has already done one small initial run of Supporter Edition books, and they came out beautifully.
