The American Patriot’s Bible

I don’t have time to write much about this, and my blood pressure probably couldn’t cope with thinking about the subject for long, but some readers of Kouya Chronicle might want to be aware of this new publication.

Author, pastor and teacher Dr. Richard Lee and Thomas Nelson Publishing have assembled the original, one-of-a-kind “American Patriot’s Bible.” This bible contains every word of the Holy Scriptures in the New King James version and also includes hundreds of articles, illustrations and stories about America’s rich Christian heritage and the bible’s impact on its culture, lifestyles, laws and morals. This bible is availalbe May 2009 wherever bibles are sold.

You can see more discussion on the Patriot’s Bible including a couple of decidedly strange promos here.

I don’t have anything against Thomas Nelson, but they do have two of the strangest Bible publications I’ve ever come across (see this earlier post)

  1. I’m an American and I like to think of myself as a patriot–always provided I can make clear that my primary allegiance is not to any earthly government and there are times when that higher allegiance may make me seem unpatriotic.

    But this Bible is so bad in concept that I can’t even bring myself to accept a free copy from Thomas Nelson to review. The idea of American flag images on the cover of a Bible is just frightening in so many ways. I guess I’ll have to stick with the cliche: It’s a very bad book; that’s why I never read it!

  2. I’m reblogging this. Thanks for the tip. I’ve been looking at the Christianity/patriotism of Oswald Chambers and CS Lewis in wartime. It’s not always easy to untangle our culture from our religion.

  3. It just came to me what we really need. A “Scripture is relevant to you whatever your background, circumstances or interests” study Bible. The notes will highlight the impact of Scripture on all kinds of people in all kinds of places.
