A New Testament Reading Experience by Students, for Students
In Pierced: The New Testament, students discover a narrative version of the New Testament that reads more like a regular book and is organized to make better sense. Every book is introduced by original artwork created by teenage artists. And every book includes the actual scribbled notes and highlights and questions that teenagers have written in their own Bibles. Students join their conversation as they read, with space throughout to add their own voice. The story of Jesus is piercing, and will pierce them, as they follow his narrative all the way to his heart.
Removing the Barriers for Engaging Scripture Reading
Pierced serves as an open door for teenagers to no longer avoid Scripture. This New Testament narrative immerses readers into the greater story of Jesus through an intentionally simple, personal design.
Contextualized for youth from Biblica's The Books of the Bible, which strips away centuries of added formatting included in most modern Bibles, Pierced reads more like a novel than a textbook.
We recruited teenage artists from around the world to add their own unique artistic translations of each book of the New Testament. Styles of artwork are as diverse as the students themselves, all delivering a powerful depiction to propel readers through the piercing story of Jesus.
Real Notes from Students' Actual Bibles
We recruited 10 teenagers from all over the country to add their authentic voices to the pages of Pierced. We asked them to send us their own marked-up Bibles, then copied all of their margin notes, highlighting, and underlining and transferred them verbatim into the pages of Pierced. Readers are invited into a conversation about the most important truths that guide our lives.
