Praise For The Print Edition

American Patriots Bible

We commend you for your careful research that produced what we believe to be the most crafted Study Bible that combines the Word of God and the Christian beliefs of our Founding Fathers. These are timeless principles that have made this the greatest nation on earth. At a time when secular elitists rule this country and disregard our nation’s roots, it is refreshing to read the truth about our history.

Tim and Beverly LaHaye, Tim LaHaye Ministry, Co-Author of The Left Behind fiction series

The Patriots Bible Really

Have you ever seen the Saturday Night Live skit entitled Really? With Seth and Amy? Sometimes its pretty funny. I was thinking that perhaps the best way to get through my critique of The American Patriots Bible would be to give a Really? type report on it.

I want to preface my report by saying I am certain the commentators behind the Patriots Bible are well intentioned, godly scholars who believe theyre doing the Kingdom a great service. Despite their noble intentions, however, I believe this Bible is, frankly, idolatrous, dangerous and profoundly damaging to the Kingdom. I feel compelled to denounce it in the strongest possible way I can. The sarcasm that follows is intended for this purpose only.

Heres some really? reflections, in no particular order.


* The Lords statement that Moses is faithful in all My houses calls for a boxed quote from Grover Cleveland about how the teachings of Christ results in the purest patriotism

Really? Oddly enough, Christians for the first three centuries of the church were persecuted for being unpatriotic. They wouldnt pledge allegiance to the emperor or fight to defend the empire. Now Jesus becomes the champion of patriotism. Really? Does this hold true for Russians, North Koreans and Iranians, or just Americans? And how on earth did we leap from a verse about Gods houses to the topic of patriotism in the first place? Really?

Heres a quote of Douglas that I wish had found its way into the Patriots Bible.

The Silver Lining To The American Patriot’s Bible

If the beginning of this promotional video doesnt remind you of the opening credits of The Colbert Report, then you probably dont get Comedy Central. And if the entire thing doesnt make you cringe with embarrassment, then you probably lack the facial muscles to do so.

The American Patriots Bible, released this spring by Thomas Nelson Publishers, has caused quite a stir on the blogosphere recently. Needless to say, if anything deserves one of LifeWays infamous Read With Discernment stickers, it would be this little piece of nationalistic propaganda.

Gregory Boyd wrote an excellent review on Out of Ur blog. In Part 1, he criticizes the editors for suggesting that America is a nation uniquely governed and blessed by God and for selectively retelling American history based on that assumption.

In Part 2, Boyd expresses his dismay at how The Patriots Bible celebrates nationalistic violence. Most stunningly, writes Boyd, is that each Gospel opens with a scene that includes soldiers struggling to raise a flag under the words In God We Trust.


Clearly, The Patriots Bible is at best an embarrassment to evangelicals everywhere and at worst a little idol with a $30 price tag.

So what do I see as the silver lining?

The fact that everyones so mad.

Of course, we have yet to see the sales numbers, and that may be more telling than blog chatter. But I have a feeling that, overall, tolerance for combining Scripture with nationalistic propaganda is growing thinner.

Book Review: The Patriot’s Bible

The American Patriot

Published by Thomas Nelson Publishers, The American Patriot’s Bible consists of hundreds of commentaries on various patriotic themes, ranging in length from one sentence to four pages, inserted at various points throughout the New King James Version of the Bible. Every special interest Bible imposes a certain agenda that to some degree colors the Word, but the Patriot’s Bible takes this “coloring” to a whole new level. There’s not a single commentary in this Bible that even attempts to shed light on what the biblical text actually means. To the contrary, the text of the Bible is used merely as an excuse to further the patriotic agenda of the commentators.


There are a multitude of problematic aspects to the Patriot’s Bible, including the remarkable way it excludes from consideration almost every aspect of American history that could blemish the image of America or its heroes. For example, on the basis of Zechariah’s prophecy that the Messiah would “speak peace …

“Its pages contain an accurate archive of Americaâs strong ties to the Holy Bible and the God of the Bible. It highlights people and events which demonstrate the godly qualities that make America what it is today…. It is the one Bible that shows how a light from above shaped our nation.”

An American Patriots Bible

Chapter:
Oxford University Press

The Revolution may be the most important event in American history, and the Bible was arguably its most influential book. The patriots fought the Revolutionary War in a society in which the Bible was the most read and respected book in the colonies. Through the American Revolution, many British colonists became patriotically Americanand so did their Bible. This American patriots Bible drew from a diverse assemblage of biblical texts. It was a republican Bible, filled with self-sacrificing soldiers and political leaders. Above all, it was a militant Bible its primary purpose was to forge militant patriotism. In the American Revolution, when it came to making the case for war and ushering citizens to the battlefield, the Bible was a persuasive ally. This biblical patriotism would cascade throughout American history as the United States came to define itself and its destiny largely though the justice and sacredness of its wars.

American Patriot’s Bible – Book Review

John Adams, the second president of the United States, wrote: Let not Geneva be forgotten or despised. Religious liberty owes it most respect.

Between 1560 and 1599, The Geneva Bible was providentially unleashed upon a dark, discouraged, downtrodden English-speaking world. Just when it looked as if the Machiavellian, Divine Right kings, such as the Tudors of England, were about to drive Christendom back to the days of Caesar worship, a Bible appeared that set the stage for a Christian Reformation of life and culture the likes of which the world had never seen.

We too are living in dark days. The Biden-Harris administration and most members of congress do not value the Faith and Freedom that our nation was built upon. The Geneva Bible is needed more than ever. After 422 years, and by the providence of God, it is back in print for you to cherish!

BACKGROUND:

When the Pilgrims arrived in the New World in 1620, they brought along supplies, a consuming passion for advancing the Kingdom of Christ, and the Word of God. Clearly, their most precious cargo was the Bible specifically, the 1599 Geneva Bible.

If you consider yourself a patriot, then you should own a copy of this beautiful hardback edition of the 1599 Geneva Bible: Patriot’s Edition.

  • Magna Carta
  • Washingtons Rules of Civility
  • Washingtons Circular for the States
  • Washingtons Prayer for the United States

*This is officially a second edition, with updated cover, new ISBN, new Barcode, and additional end matter
