New Bible to Celebrate America’s Heroes of Past and Present
The American Patriot’s Bible Offers Inspiration During
(Nashville, Tenn.) In the midst of the recession, a new Bible project is offering hope to rekindle the American spirit. The American Patriot’s Bible(May 2009, Thomas Nelson) takes readers on a powerful journey revealing how faith has seen American citizens through troubled times, as well as impacted the overall formation of this great nation. Joining with the sacred New King James version (NKJV) text are stories of American heroes, quotations from and articles about many of America’s greatest thinkers, historic photographs, and beautiful illustrations that present the rich heritage and tremendous future of the United States of America.
“America stands without equal as a beacon of hope and freedom in a hurting world. Our Founding Fathers delivered to us a system of government that has enjoyed unprecedented success: we are now the world’s longest ongoing constitutional republic. Well over two hundred years under one form of government is an accomplishment unknown among contemporary nations,” notes Dr. Richard G. Lee who serves as the general editor for the project, as well as founding pastor of First Redeemer Church (Atlanta, GA), and speaker for the There’s Hope America ministry.
The American Patriot’s Bible spotlights the people and events that demonstrate the godly qualities that have made America great. It connects three important elements: the teachings of the Bible, the history of the United States, and the connection it has to its citizens today. Throughout the pages readers will discover little known facts about historic events and other national treasures such as notations of every known Bible verse on which our presidents rested their hands when they were sworn into office.
“As Andrew Jackson, our seventh President, said regarding the Bible, ‘That Book, sir, is the rock upon which our republic rests,’ notes Lee. “The American Patriot’s Bible will help readers discover the cornerstone upon which America, and her great men and women, have built their lives and this ‘one Nation under God.’”
The American Patriot’s Bible’s general editor, Dr. Richard G. Lee is the Founding Pastor of First Redeemer Church (Atlanta, GA), speaker for the There’s Hope America ministry, and President of There’s Hope for the Hungry food distribution campaign. He has served as President of the Pastor's Conference of the Southern Baptist Convention; is a member of the Oxford Roundtable (Oxford, England); a Trustee of Liberty University and Liberty School of Law; and a Board member of the National Religious Broadcasters.
