Often referred to as the greatest story ever told, the Bible is nevertheless one of the hardest texts to get through; this redesigned Bible hopes to change that. Although it tends to be encased in stunning covers, the inside leaves much to be desired. The hard-to-read text has most likely deterred many from consuming the words, atheist or not.
The redesigned Bible, designed by Santa Cruz-based Adam Lewis Greene, makes a huge difference in that department. Fast Co Design reports, "Instead of trying to cram the 726,000 words of the New International Version of the Bible into a single volume, Bibliotheca splits it up into four attractive hardcover volumes, two each for the Old and New Testament." This leaves much room for a better layout, which will attract readers and perhaps even believers.
