Manuscript Books is on a mission to make reading the Bible less intimidating. Their first solution is to make individual pocket-sized versions of the four gospels in manuscript form. Each gospel manuscript, the creators say, is meant to capture the unique voice of its author, is formatted like a regular book (without verse numbers or footnotes) and is designed to be easy to take with you wherever you go.
The creators have chosen the New American Standard Bible (NASB) translation “because of its renowned word-for-word accuracy in contemporary English.”
