Stone River Books
Stone River Books is an organization which produces and prints materials. They print a book called “The Life of Jesus”, which is available in Arabic, Urdu, Hindi, Chinese, Spanish, and English. The "Life of Jesus” is the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark, Luke, and John) arranged and compiled into one sequential story using only the scriptures. It is not a modern paraphrase, but rather an accurate translation. The vocabulary is simple and ideal for those who have never before read the Bible. It has proved an effective tool to open the door to those curious about Jesus and the Good News.
