May 8, 2009 - BOOK REVIEW: The American Patriot's Bible
What a breath of fresh air for those of us who are proud to be Americans!
The American Patriot’s Bible makes a wonderful addition to any family library. It would also make a nice gift for the American history lover in your life or a student.
It is a very sturdy hardback study bible with a beautiful glossy cover. The New King James translation is an easy to read yet “meaty” version of the bible and the print of the text is exceptional.
In the front of the bible, there are beautiful pages to record family records including marriages, births, deaths, church events, family ancestry, military and public service, and more. There is also a page detailing all fifty states and the date they were admitted as a state. The concordance in the back of the bible is one of the most detailed that I’ve seen.
I love how the word of God is intertwined with the foundational history of our country, and the historical information is presented so clear and concise. The subject index which precedes the concordance helps you find articles written on various American patriots.
I really enjoyed the articles which shared little known pieces of information such as Buzz Aldrin (the second person to walk on the moon) taking communion on the moon while reading John 15:5, or that William H. Taft placed his hand on 1 Kings 3:9-11 as he took his presidential oath in 1909.
I highly recommend this bible, though I'm not sure I would use the term "study" to describe it. It's a bible combined with historical facts that weave the history of our nation and the word of God into one book.
