About Tiny Bible

In 1896, David Bryce of Glasgow produced a miniature Bible using offset lithography. Hundreds of thousands of these Bibles were printed and issued to soldiers in the British Empire. Here’s what it looked like.

David Bryce 1901 Miniature Bible

This was the smallest full paper Bible ever made. In recent times, there’s been nothing like it on the market. The David Bryce Bible became a collector Bible that was rare and hard to find. At the urging of a friend in 2022, I began to explore how to remake this Bible at an affordable price. I wanted a Bible that you could take with you anywhere and everywhere; a Bible that’s highly concealable and portable. After countless emails, Zoom meetings, and trips to printers and binders, we’re excited to announce the result: a miniature Bible that we call Tiny Bible

On December 2022, we took the idea to Kickstarter and successfully raised $25,000 in preorders, despite Kickstarter censoring the project due to the project’s “controversial” video in which we said that the Bible defines basic categories such as male and female and marriage.

The story of Tiny Bible is still unfolding and this page will be updated as more things develop. Today, Tiny Bible is for sale for preorder, and we plan to fulfill orders later in 2023.

Why Tiny Bible? 

The Word of God is the most valuable physical possession we own. The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God stands forever. While the truth of God’s word is precious to his people, it is hated by his enemies. The devil, the father of lies, is attacking the Bible today in a way our generation has not seen before. Many western leaders and tech oligarchs are sanctioning the Bible. They’d confiscate parts of it if they could. Society is increasingly approving such censorship. We are entering a time of focused tribulation. If you awoke tomorrow to find the Bible apps on your smartphone pulled, what would you do? Are you prepared for a day in which it’s a hate crime to own a full Bible? This might have been unthinkable a few years ago but things are moving fast. Here are some concrete examples of things that have happened in recent times:

  • Rugby player Israel Folau was fired in April 2019 for posting 1 Corinthians 6:9-10 on Instagram.
  • Mark Dice conducted a make-believe petition in April 2022 to ban Amazon from selling the Bible and collected hearty signatures from Coastal Californians. 
  • Seattle pastor Matthew Meinecke was arrested in June 2022 simply for reading his Bible in a park, at the “wrong” place at the “wrong” time.

The Bible is an increasingly hated book. For a long time, it’s been contraband in China, North Korea, and Near-Eastern countries, but now this attack on truth is hitting Western shores in full force.

The Bible is a threat to the anti-Christ globalists because it defines who God is, who man and woman are, what marriage is, when life begins, what sin is, what salvation is, and Who it is that has been given all authority in heaven and on earth. The Bible is incompatible with the Great Reset, and the tyrants on Capitol Hill know this better than many apostate evangelicals.

How shall we then live? Dark days are ahead, but God will see his Bride through the coming storm. Right now, I believe He is calling us to prepare. One way that we can prepare is by having a printed, portable, easily-smuggled Bible that is immune to censorship. Please consider pre-ordering one, and sharing this project with folks in your church and on social media. Word-of-mouth is a force the tech giants and digital demigods can’t stop. Thank you for your prayerful consideration.
