Candles have long been used throughout the history of the Church. The use of 'votive' candles are customarily lit to symbolize prayer intentions. Candles are widely utilized during the season of Advent to symbolize a season of waiting and preparation.
Our intent is to honor the long-standing role candles have played throughout Church history. Whether used for prayer intentions, liturgical structures, or symbolism towards God—we believe the candle can be a helpful tool in creating a more beautiful faith life. Each of our candles is complemented with reflections on a different theme important to the Christian faith. We hope it can serve as a point-of-departure for deeper spiritual contemplation, and that it helps you experience God anew. Amen.

Deepen Your Experience With God
Designing Alabaster Bibles start with an in-depth study of scripture. We explore key themes, historical context, and author intent. We hope our design and imagery deepen your experience with God.
A Beautiful Reading Experience
Reading the Bible can feel intimidating. In common Bibles, the text is small and condensed, the pages are thin. Alabaster Bibles combines imagery, design, and craftsmanship into the full text of each book of the Bible—to create a visually beautiful reading experience.
Beauty matters in our understanding of who God is. Every aspect of our books is carefully considered. Original artwork from around the world, typography, layout design and negative space are thoughtfully weaved into each book of the Bible. Printed on quality paper using FSC-certified, environmentally friendly practices.
