Alabaster – The Bible Beautiful

Bryan and Brian are friends and colleagues of mine and they have an exciting project they are launching into the world. It is a new Bible format driven by their desire to connect us with beauty in a more meaningful way. I am a financial supporter of this project and think it is an amazing creation. They are 90% funded and need that last little push. Check out this interview with them and if their project inspires you, please support it and share it!

Briefly describe your Kickstarter Project, Alabaster:

This year, I have had the privilege of watching God awaken handfuls of fraternity and sorority students to his presence for the first time.

Just a few weeks ago I had a group of them over for dinner and to help me with the kids while Kristina was gone. As we were sitting in my man cave later that night, we realized none of the people in the room came to college following Jesus. In fact, one of them decided to start following Jesus earlier that day! It was an amazing realization.

I declared in that moment, “We need to go Bible shopping!” and everyone was so excited about the possibility of having his or her own.

Wow, what a drastic difference than the usual Friday night on Greek Row.
