American Bible Society launched its Newark, New Jersey project by printing this special edition of the Gospel according to John. The text was taken from the Good News Testament and the cover title “Real Power” was meant to stimulate the curiosity of its targeted recipients and point them in the right direction. The booklet was printed with the original illustration designed by Annie Vallotton. In 1968 ABS distributed in Newark more than 500,000 copies of this special edition John’s Gospel. The initial press run of 500,000 copies proved insufficient and another million copies were produced before the end of 1968.
