In its 2019 State of the Bible report, the organization found that 72 percent of Bible readers prefer a physical copy over a digital one, which was one of the inspirations behind the list.
"The Bible is the world's bestselling book," said Peter Edman, director of Scripture engagement content at American Bible Society. "But it can be difficult to choose the right one among the huge variety of editions and translations available."
Alabaster Co., a millennial-owned startup that redesigned the Bible for the Instagram generation, landed the top spot this year.
"For many, a Bible isn't just any ordinary Christmas product or gift, it's a meaningful and impactful book that carries special memories and profound moments in people's personal lives," Brian Chung, Alabaster co-founder who was raised in a Buddhist household, told Fox News. "When someone gifts a Bible to a friend, they are gifting a book that can touch the human soul."

Both are great starters for people wanting to get back into the Word or for people who are exploring faith for the first time."
