Classic and traditional Bibles are the norm in a Christian country like the Philippines. But with the changing times, it’s not such a bad idea to revamp the look of the traditional Bible—without changing its contents, of course. This is what Mahal Books created.
Mahal Books is a local lifestyle brand that offers Bible books with a more modern and stylish look. These Bible books feature minimalist designs and vibrant photographs of the Philippines that complement the Scriptures. If you’re one who has a hard time opening your Bible because of its traditionally small letters and lack of photographs, then these products from Mahal Books will definitely change that.
“We’ve talked with so many whose spiritual journeys have been derailed in large part due to a traditional rigidness that sometimes is associated with faith,” shares the Mahal Books team. “This can be off-putting for younger generations who live in a visually embracing world. The purpose of Mahal Books isn’t by any means to replace traditional Bibles but rather to act as a new way to complement, rejuvenate, or even start spiritual journeys.”
“So in a nutshell, we wanted to create an interface that allows people to appreciate the beauty of God’s Creations and scriptures in an aesthetically pleasing manner.”
Right now, Mahal Books is offering aesthetic versions of the following Bible books: Proverbs, Psalms, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John. Sometime next year, they are also set to produce additional Bible books.

What sets Mahal Books apart from other overseas brands that also offer modern Bibles is that they only use breathtaking photographs from the Philippines. The books also have “Alive Pages” which feature a QR code that will take you to stunning videos from where the photos were taken, literally bringing the photographs to life!
Aside from offering you a fresh new way to read the Bible, Mahal Books also gives a portion of their sales directly to their partner NGOs.
These aesthetic Bible books start at PHP 1,000 apiece and you can get them directly from Mahal Books’ website. These just might be the perfect Christmas gifts for your friends and family!
