The American Patriot's Bible

The American Patriot's Bible:
The Word of God and the Shaping of America.
General Editor: Dr. Richard G. Lee

The American Patriot's Bible is a hardcover study bible containing the complete Old and New Testaments in The New King James translation. Interspersed throughout the bible are 48 beautiful color and black and white photos on glossy paper of heroes past and present of the United States, including our current president, Barrack Obama, and United States landmarks, such as the Washington Monument and Lincoln Memorial. Chapter openings of each book of the bible give a brief description of the book with author, date written, key verse, key chapter, and theme of the book. There is also a subject index, a concordance, and colorful maps in the back of the bible.

Contained in the book are 254 articles that discuss our Judeo-Christian heritage. You will read about the "Great Awakening" and prayers for our nation, about the Emancipation Proclamation, Martin Luther King, and various other times and events in US history. You will find little snip-its of quotes by presidents and others reminding us of our Christian heritage and what verses various presidents laid their hands on while taking their oaths of office.

The themes of the writings included in the bible are sanctity for human life, respect for our country, and turning hearts of our country back to God. The print throughout the bible is larger then most bibles, making reading the bible more comfortable and enjoyable.

Overall, this bible is beautiful. I did feel the supplemental readings were disjointed and did not flow as nicely as I would have liked. I do wish there was more details about the history and not just snip-its here and there. Otherwise, the extra material does not interfere with the reading and flow of the bible itself, which is most important.

I highly recommend this bible as gifts to you our nations leaders and future leaders (no matter how little or big a role they play in our society) and for our US military personnel.
